    About Us

     

    Our Philosophy:

    We believe the library is a community, not a place or a collection of books. Diversity and racial justice are cornerstones to our philosophy, both in resource collection and curriculum. Our goal is for all users to feel safe to explore, experiment, create, collaborate, express themselves, and learn. Learning experiences focus on 21st Century skills development through a variety of instruction methods. We believe failure is equally important to student growth and development into leaders and citizens who are ready to participate in their community. This is a place where teachers and students are collaborators, innovators, and co-teachers.

In addition to being an educator, I am also a professional actress focusing in musical theater with a Bachelor of Arts in Music (Voice) from Portland State University. Things I love: books (especially mysteries and historical fiction), hiking, cooking, yoga, British television, and history (my favorite podcast is The Bowery Boys).

    With a degree in history and a daughter who attended Odyssey I am thrilled to be a part of the Odyssey community.  As a kid you could often find me hiding in a backyard tree with a book so working in a library is my dream job! My first job with PPS was at Hayhurst/Odyssey 15 years ago.  I also worked at Kelly ES and Lincoln HS before coming back to Hayhurst and Odyssey and prior to PPS I worked in public libraries.  My favorite books as a child were Nancy Drew mysteries and that’s still my favorite genre, but I love discovering new reads.
