Degrees and Certifications:
I have my BA in English from the University of Northern Colorado, and I have had the privilege of working at Chappelow for 8 years, 7 of them in the library. I'm happy to help, if you have any questions or library needs!
It is my goal to teach students information literacy, that is, to be able to find information, understand it, and use it!
Your student will have the opportunity to learn his or her way around the library and develop an enjoyment of reading!
This year, there are so many exciting things going on to promote love of reading and increase reading skill
amongst the Chappelow students!

Practice makes Perfect!When you want to excel at something, you must practice! If you want to be a world-class soccer star, you must spend time conditioning and practicing on the field! If you want to be a Rock Star, you have to put in the time mastering your instrument or vocal skills. The same goes for being a great reader!!Some people think that a person is either a "good reader" or a "not a very good reader." We forget that we can change this by how much we PRACTICE reading! We want kids to grow their abilities as readers. With the AR program, students will be tested to determine their reading levels and then be challenged to meet a goal by reading books within that level and taking quizzes to show they understood what they read.Chappelow's library books are labeled with AR levels and points, but what if your book is not labeled?
