Welcome!


I’m Elementary Library Mama and I’m so glad you stopped by!  I’m currently heading into my eighteenth year as an elementary media specialist at a K-5 school in the Midwest.  I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a Masters of Arts in Library Information Science.  Prior to becoming a media specialist, I taught both second and third grades.

I’m married to my college sweetheart and we are the proud parents of a teenager, a preteen, and a child who thinks she’s a teenager! ;-)  When my kids were little, they always called me “Mama” instead of “Mommy”.  I am so blessed to be a Mama that I wanted to incorporate this word into my blog title.  Thus, Elementary Library Mama was born!

Obviously, I am a strong believer in the importance of school libraries and librarians/media specialists.  School media specialists are first and foremost, TEACHERS.  We constantly strive to be knowledgeable in literature trends, curriculum, and the latest technology.  We provide a nurturing environment where students can come to pursue their own reading interests and learn critical information literacy skills.  We really are the “heart” of the school!

I started my TeachersPayTeachers store in the summer of 2013 and continue to focus on creating resources that would help me in my own library media center:




Be sure to follow me on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram as they are the best places to find out about new products, sales and updates.  I love connecting with other library media specialists and teachers!
