Library Media Clerk
Hi! I'm Ms. Glory.
Since early childhood, I have absolutely loved to read! That same love of reading was passed on to my daughter. She now holds a Masters Degree in Library Science and Information Systems. She in turn taught her son to love not only reading, but to write and illustrate three of his own small books - thus serving as living proof that - Reading is Contagious!
After working at Stetson Hills in several capacities and relocating to Greenbrier as the Library Media Clerk, I have enjoyed seeing the faces of children as they identify with the characters or emotions discovered during Story Time. Finding those teachable, connective moments is so magical!
In addition, while considering it a privilege to search for activities and books to enliven your children's interests, I will strive to impart the same contagious love of reading as well. Recently, I read a quotation that meant so much to me, "One child, one teacher, one book, one pen - can change the world". I think of the wonderful educators at Greenbrier and I'm glad to find whatever resource each requires to be that special kind of teacher - with the potential to change the world one child at a time. Amazing!
As for myself, there are so many books I have consumed, but if I must name some favorites: Any fairytale illustrated by Kinuko Y Craft, The Collected Sonnets And Works Of William Shakespeare, Poems Of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Laurie R. King - Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes series, Jane Austen - all, Stephanie Barrons - Jane Mysteries, Harper Lee's -To Kill A Mockingbird, Charlotte & Emily Bronte - all, Alan Bradley's Flavia de Luce series, Laura Childs - Mystery Tea cozies, The Count Of Monte Cristo - Dumas, Tasha Alexander's - Lady Emily series, Rebecca - Daphne du Maurier, Sommerset Maugham's works, various Historical novels and Biographies, Lauren Willig - Pink Carnation series, & my favorite of all - I may not name.
"I read as the flame consumes wood".
