      It has been a privilege to work with the children at Cherokee Elementary for over twenty years.  I'm thrilled to be at home where I started, working with people I know and love.  My husband and I live in Florence with our two boys, and we enjoy spending family time together.  Thank you, Lord, for my family!

     The library is an integral part of the school and your child's education.  Reading is the foundation for all other learning.  I hope to help you in encouraging your child to love reading and becoming a lifelong learner.  The library is the information hub, which is so important in an ever-changing society where children need to know how to access and use information.  Let's work together to encourage your child.
