Thank You, Sonntag Community!!




Happy summer, Sonntag Community!

It is with a heavy heart [and a heavy shelf marker...see picture above] that I tell you that I am moving on from Sonntag Elementary this summer. It has been such a privilege and pleasure serving as the Sonntag librarian for the past 7 years. I am so thankful for all who I have taught, worked with, and connected with. I've learned so much from each and every Reader who has walked through the doors of Sonntag Elementary. 

I am not going far. I will be moving north to Prosper ISD as an elementary Library Media Specialist. This blog will continue to serve as my way to get the word out about the love of reading and learning. Even though this blog, my Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram accounts may look different, you will still be able to connect with me there. 

I thank you for all of your love and support throughout the past 7 years. I look forward to seeing how this amazing Sonntag Community grows!! Happy reading!! :o)
