The Bowie Library’s mission is to teach inquiry and information literacy skills within the context of content curriculum, teach digital citizenship and online safety, and promote a school-wide culture of reading.
It has been my honor to have watched generations of students and their families walk the halls of Bowie Elementary for over 25 years. I have been the lucky Bowie LITE/librarian since 1996. My Bachelor of Arts in English, as well as my Masters in Library and Information Science, are both from The University of Texas at Austin. My professional passion is inspiring life-long learning through curiosity, inquiry, problem solving, and exploration.
