    About Me:  This is my 18th year as a school librarian and I am pleased to have your child as one of my students!  My experience includes elementary, middle, and high school, as well as in college, public, and corporate libraries.  I have an undergraduate degree from Temple University in Human Resource Management/Business Administration and graduate degree in Library & Information Science from Drexel University.  I believe in lifelong learning and have continued taking graduate level classes in Library & Information Science and general education through coursework at The University of Pennsylvania and the University of Delaware.   
    The goals of the Marshall Library Media Center are to support the curriculum, foster a love of reading and literature, and teach information seeking strategies.  The learning that takes place in the Library Media Center is a developmental spiral with each skill building on the previously learned skills.  The curriculum is based on the curriculum established by Christina School District and the American Association of School Librarians.  Students will:
    • Use the Dewey Decimal System of organization
    • Recognize story structure, parts of books, genre or style, fiction or nonfiction
    • Work with Destiny Library Catalog
    • Work with the UD/LIB Search Databases for Elementary Schools
    • Work with Tumblebooks
    • Utilize ISafe practices for Internet uses
    • Be aware of practical and ethical behavior
    • Establish personal interests in literature
