Paige Turner is very organized. She is always one of the first to get things done. Paige is fast and she accurately and efficiently finishes her work. Paige does not wait for the teacher to tell her what to do, she is able to successfully work independently. She soaks up knowledge as fast as we can throw it at her. She is very aware of what is happening around her and does her part to make good choices for herself and to encourage others as well.

I look forward to summer every year. I usually have a list of books that I decide to read during the summer for professional reasons. I like to stay ahead of the curve and become more familiar with the trends of our customers, strengthen my knowledge base, and read outside of my comfort zone. I like to read a variety of genres and age levels — from juvenile fiction to the classic I never got around to reading. I love getting inspired by listening to the enthusiasm of our library users discuss their current favorites.
