Starla | 4 comments Hello everyone I'm Starla! I am going to UNO for Elementary Education with an endorsement in K-3 and school librarian. I have 2 Huskies named Bella and Ace. I am married to an amazing man if I don't say so myself (haha) and we have a little girl named Addalyn. We are also expecting our second baby that is due any day now! We live on a farm south of Plattsmouth, Nebraska and enjoy our family time together. I am a very outdoorsy person and rarely sit inside. I must admit I am very OCD and make lists for everything, which drives most people insane. Anyway I look forward to working with you all!

Nikki Ibarra | 4 comments Hello everyone! My name is Genoveva Ibarra but I go by Nikki (it's a long story) I am an elementary education major with an endorsement in ESL. I have my one baby, my kitty Maggie and she's beyond spoiled. I absolutely am a book worm and have read countless books in the past. I have only ever hated one book in my life, but if you hand me a book and tell me to read it, chances are I'm going to fall in love with it too. I work at La Petite Academy with kiddos up to 12 years old to work on classroom management and to get ideas for my future classroom. I really look forward to this class because I've heard it rekindles many peoples' love of books and I would love to see that in action.

I also always have Goals that I am working to accomplish. Whether they are short-term or long-term, I wake up everyday with these goals in mind. Always have a goal, always have a dream that you are chasing after. Set them high because you deserve nothing less, and don't stop until you reach them.

message 19: by Brian (new)

Brian Duffy | 4 comments Hello, I'm Brian and I am studying to become a public librarian. Right now I mow lawns for several small businesses in Omaha. The rest of the year I work for my parents' real estate management business. In my spare time I read about superheroes in comic books. I mostly read DC Comics, in case you were interested. I actually run a blog all about DC Comics. Which has 14,000 followers last I checked. My first priority in my career is to simply be a librarian. But, if the planets align, I would love to help my future library have a strong online presence. ☮️❤️
