Garrett Elementary

Every Child, Every Day

Achieving Excellence

 Mrs. Stephenson

Get ready for a wonderful year with the awesome educators at Garrett Elementary  and I am privileged to serve as your librarian.   I am excited about the new year and ready to be an active, educational agent  in the lives of our familes.
As librarian, I plan to help our students develop a healthy love and appreciation for reading and teach them to understand the value of authentic research skills that will support their present and future educational goals. I also plan to expose our teachers and students to digital resources that will positively impact the learning process and make the library an exciting and memorable place.
I have resided in Houston for over 25 years and am a proud alumni of The University of Houston.  I received  masters degrees in Education focusing on Curriculum & Instruction and Reading; respectively, and certification in Library Science.   My job experiences include 4th grade teacher, librarian and fine arts magnet coordinator.  I have been married to a devoted husband for 25 years and am the proud mother two wonderful children.  
My family is an essential part of my life and I enjoy spending time with my sisters, brothers, nephews and neices - so much that we all spend family vacation together each year.  I love to travel so please share any great vacation spots that are a must see.
I welcome the opportunity to meet each of you and please know that this is our library and I value your time, ideas and support.  I know that together we will produce life long readers that will learn to connect globally.
