I am thrilled to be at CKS this year. A little about my background: I graduated from Trevecca Nazarene University with a librarian endorsement and several years ago received my Master in Education degree from MTSU. For as long as I can remember I have always enjoyed books, even playing librarian as a kid complete with circulation cards. I have been a first grade teacher and last year, a librarian at John Overton High School. I enjoy working with students of all ages, so being a teacher/librarian for preschool-eighth is a perfect fit.

I have been married for over twenty years and have two children: a son at Lipscomb Elementary and a daughter at Brentwood Middle School

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family more than anything. I also enjoy reading. (I know that was a surprise.) My favorite sports team is the Predators and my goal is to get to more games this year. Please don’t hesitate to call or email with questions or if you want a good book recommendation.

Library Expectations

Respect the library materials (so we’ll have more to use) and respect each other.

Everything has a correct place (so we’ll be able to find what we need).

Always share (so we’ll return things when they are due and we’ll put things on hold when we have to wait).

Don’t disturb others working in the library (so we’ll all have a special place to read and work). Push in your chair and don’t run in the library (so we are safe!)

Library Policy

Preschool and Kindergarten

Preschoolers will check out books later in the year. These books will stay in their classroom until their next library class.

Kindergarten - will check out 1 book starting later in the year. As the year progresses, students will be able to check out two books.

Grades First-Eighth

Students may check out two books each week and keep those books up to two weeks. If the student needs extra time, please discuss this with Mrs. Wood.

Students may check out more than two books if needed for a research project or during school season breaks. Check with Mrs. Wood first.
