    About the Teacher

    Hello. I am the librarian at Madison Crossing Elementary. I have been a librarian since 1981 and joined the Madison Crossing staff in 2006.

     Madison Crossing Elementary Library serves children kindergarten through 5th grade. 

    During the school year we have a school book fair. Our book fair is connected to the PTO's Crossing Fest usually held in autumn.
    We had a guest author Tom Watson on Oct. 7, 2016 to speak to the students on how he writes and illustrates books.
    The Madison Crossing Reading Fair was held in February. This year the Reading Fair will be held first semester. I will post dates when they are available to me. This is where the students read a story and then tell the story through a decorated project board. The first place winners progressed on to the District Reading Fair.
