Hi there! I’m Jessica. I’m a book-loving, late-night blogging former teacher turned library lady. I spent most of my teacher time in preschool and kindergarten. Back then my favorite things were teaching kids to read and write, concocting elaborate dramatic play setups, connecting parents with resources and of course STORYTIME! Then I found out there’s a whole different field that gets to do just that on a community-wide scale. I was out. Or in, depending on your perspective. 🙂
These days I work part-time as a stortytime specialist in the Denver metro area with the most AMAZING team in the library world while I’m finishing my MLS with Emporia State University. By the way, the thoughts and opinions expressed on this blog are my own, not those of my employer. I’m also quite busy having fun with being President of our ESU Student Chapter of the ALA (SCALA), which has been a wonderful journey but is a lot of work!
When I’m not doing homework, making fun flannels or compulsively pinning/tweeting, I’m either reading or hiking in the beautiful mountains with my wonderful hubby. I sometimes try and keep up to date with my other persona, Fun in PreK-1 & Kinder and my store on Teachers Pay Teachers, so you can always check me out in those places as well.
Thanks for stopping by and reading about my grand new adventure!
