IMG_4473My name is Kate.

I have a passion for people, a love of books & learning, and an aversion to quiet. I am an enthusiastic questioner of everything. I am mother to an inquisitive and ridiculous teen, and am married to a deep-thinking active duty Infantryman. We move every few years, so I have taken job opportunities where they’ve come, learning amazing lessons and meeting interesting people along the way.

I began this blog when I started library school, and have in turn nurtured and ignored it. I’ve found lately it has been a useful place to share and connect with other readers and thinkers.

I hold a B.A. in English Literature and an M.S. in Library and Information Science. I’ve spent most of my life teaching–teaching English and “Library Skills” to High School students; life skills to adults; and the Hokey Pokey to preschoolers.  I’ve also been known to encourage a little singing and dancing in non-preschool environments.
