Clubs and Groups Sponsored

2017- Present
UNT Future School Librarians Facebook Group– I began the group because I had formed friendships in classes that I wished to maintain. Each semester more and more classmates join. Those in the group help each other with tips and advice.

2011- Present
Creative Writing Club– Otto Middle School
I teach students who wish to be writers when they graduate. I teach them skills needed for writing novels such as outlining, character development, plot development, and how the publishing industry works.
