Our sixth ReadinRally kicks off

March 24, 2014.

Read at least ten books from your list by May 5th! Students who have read ten books (or MORE!) will be on their classroom team!



Online Overdrive eBook library

now available to elementary students!

Students can use their student ID# (cafeteria or library number) to check out books for your Nook, Kindle, or other eReader.

Audiobooks for the iPod and MP3 are also available!

Access is automatically blocked for books too mature for your student's grade level, so browse with confidence! All titles can be seen, but elementary students cannot checkout books more appropriate for middle and high school students.

Find your student's ID # on the report card or ask them if they know their library number.

The San Antonio Public Library,, also has a terrific ebook and audiobook collection!

Welcome to Timberwilde!  
We have a great school filled with friendly people. I am fortunate to work in my dream job - work is all fun when you're working in the libraryOne great thing about being a librarian is that I get to learn about EVERYTHING !
My family has been in Texas for generations. I grew up along the Gulf Coast, but have also lived in west and north Texas. 
I attended Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, where I majored in psychology and family counseling.  Soon after graduation, I began work on my teaching certification.  I've taught 4th grade, music, art, & computer (K-8), middle school science, and learning disabled students in 1st-8th grades.  
My husband's job brought us to San Antonio 16 years ago, and we love living here!  I stayed home with my young children for 6 years, and began work on my library science degree during that time.  I received my Master of Library Science from the University of North Texas in 2007 and came to Timberwilde the same year
My husband is a high school teacher and our daughters are in high school.  In my spare time, I like to read, work jigsaw, Sudoku, and word puzzles, crochet and play games with my family

Reading at Home:

* Take a "picture walk" through the book before reading. Talk about what you think might happen in the book.

* Read together—“You read a page, I’ll read  a page,” or “You read a sentence, I’ll read a sentence.”

* After you've read a few minutes, stop and talk about what has happened.  Predict what might happen next.

* After reading a book, have your child retell the story in her own words. 

* Bedtime Bonus:  Keep bedtime the same, or even make it a little earlier, BUT  “You can read for 30 minutes if you’d like.”  He gets to “stay up longer,” AND he’s reading! You both win.
