Developing programming for various populations has become a great passion of mine, especially while working in Anne Arundel County Public Libraries as an Early Literacy Specialist, and STEM team member, and at Carnegie Library of Homestead, as the Interim Programming Coordinator. I have never in the past enjoyed my work more than when I’m teaching, introducing literacy, planning crafts, and activities.
