About Suzanne

Greetings, I am a wife and mother of two teenage sons. Before I married, I served 10 years in the Army (active and reserves), stationed in Germany, studied at Defense Language Institute twice (German and Russian). I earned a BA from Texas A&M in German, minor in management. I earned a Master's in Library and Information Science from The University of Texas. When I was putting myself through college, I worked various administrative and library paraprofessional jobs. After I married, I worked in public libraries as Adult Reference Librarian and Children's Librarian. After my oldest son was born in 2000, I stayed at home but continued doing church library volunteer work. My second son was born and we moved to Kansas. I stayed home with my children, but was involved in leadership numerous volunteer organizations and also continued with church libraries. In 2009, I took classes to become certified as a school librarian from Emporia State. From 2010-2014 I worked as a Technology Coordinator at an elementary school on Fort Leavenworth. When my oldest son started high school, I decided to stay home to be available. I am adept at helping children and adults with writing, reading, researching, editing...I am passionate about empowering learners to read for knowledge and personal pleasure. I am committed to promoting critical thinking skills and information literacy. I am able to work collaboratively and creatively with diverse populations. If I can not help, I will tell you and try to help you locate resources that can help you or your student.

I have a good understanding of how language works. My BA is in German, but I have studied Spanish, Russian and other languages. The best tools to have are a dictionary and thesaurus.
