I have lived in Leroy for nearly 15 years with my husband and family. My oldest son graduated from Leroy-Ostrander, and I have two more children still in school. It is a privilege to help our students grow and learn. After my family, my great loves are reading, cross-stitching, and my cat, Olive.
This is my 4th year at L-O but my first full year running the school media center, and we are going to have a lot of fun! I am very excited about being the new school librarian and have spent a lot of time in the library making it more comfortable and enjoyable for our students. We even have a new system! You can find our school library at https://opac.libraryworld.com/ under the library name LOLibrary. No password is required.

The 4th grade is currently being read to from the book, "Last in a Long Line of Rebels" by Lisa Lewis Tyre. Description: Lou and her friend Benzer prayed for an exciting summer, but they got more than they bargained for--after all, exciting can mean a lot of different things. When they overhear the county's plans to take her house, Lou's determined to save it by uncovering the mystery of a stash of stolen Civil War gold, and hopes her great-great-great grandmother's newly found secret diary can help. But Lou discovers her relatives run the gamut of rebels, rapscallions, and even a bona fide hero; and she soon learns that we can never truly leave our past behind.
