Hello! I am glad you came to visit.  My name is Nora Cardiel. I taught Fifth Grade at Galm Elementary for many years. Now I have the privilege of being the new School Librarian. I have taught for 26 years and received my BA from UTSA. I received my masters' degree from Houston Baptist University and my Library Science Certificate through The University of North Texas.  I grew up in NISD having attended Adams Hill Elementary School, Pease Middle School and Holmes High School. I am the proud Mom of two children. My daughter attends the University of Texas at Austin and my son is a Senior at William Brennan High School. I am enthusiastic and look forward to a rewarding school year.

 
Mission Statement:  The Galm Library supports the academic mission of the Northside Independent School District by providing integrated teaching and learning opportunities for students, teachers, parents and the community.  Patrons are provided up-to-date print and electronic resources to reinforce the district grade level curriculum as well as recreational learning opportunities that will enable students to achieve academically and become lifelong learners.
