Welcome to the Blue Ridge ISD Library! We're excited to serve, support, and collaborate with our students, staff, and community. We hope you'll ask questions and utilize our broad range of print and digital resources, and we look forward to seeing incredible learning in BRISD!
I have been blessed to spend the last 12 years in education. I began my teaching career as a 5th grade ELAR teacher in Community ISD, then moved to Anna ISD as a 6th-8th grade ELAR/Dyslexia teacher. Those experiences prepared me for the transition to High School Librarian for Sherman ISD where I learned the craft of collaboration and learning development, and Blue Ridge ISD has fine-tuned that passion through academic growth and excellence.
I am truly proud to be a Blue Ridge Tiger!
I have been married to my husband Trent for 13 years, and he is the middle school principal in a nearby district. We have two amazing little boys, Tucker and Finn, who are students at Blue Ridge Elementary. Our family shares a passion for Tennessee Volunteer football, but we also enjoy traveling, visiting local museums/restaurants/hot spots, and spending quality time with each other around our kitchen table.
Please reach out to me or my fantastic Elementary Library Assistant Vanessa Joiner if you have questions, concerns, comments, or suggestions. We are always open to new ideas and feedback that will benefit our students and staff as we "Learn, Grow, and Excel!"
