Hello and welcome to my portfolio!
My name is Mary Herrera. Thanks to my fifth-grade teacher, Mrs. Madigan, I developed a passion for reading. My seventh-grade teacher, Mrs. Williams, encouraged me to write creatively. One of my goals in life is to inspire the next generation of readers and writers.
It has been my joy to work in education for fifteen years. I’ve been a sixth grade English and ESL teacher for the last ten years. I have always secretly dreamed of becoming a school librarian. After many years of harboring this dream, I’m working towards making that dream a reality. I am a student at the University of North Texas working on my Masters in Library Sciences.
In this portfolio, you will find blog posts that journal what I am learning, information about the AASL Standards, and many other resources.
Note about Kathryn Fletcher:
You will now see posts made by Kathryn Fletcher. She is me. I have a blog called QuillAndBooks.com in which I write under the pen name Kathryn Fletcher. I spend most of my lunches on that website creating blog posts. By linking the two sites it makes it easier to create blog posts on this site with regularity.
