Hello My Name Is...
Mrs. Emerson

In Tulsa Public Schools, everything starts at the library.  In my case, I started somewhere else but finally found my way here.  I graduated from Bishop Kelley High School  in 1986.  I attended Phillips University to study Biology for two years before transferring to Oklahoma Baptist University, graduating with a degree in Political Science and Multilingual Communications.  At the University of Tulsa I received my Masters degree in Education (Secondary) with a GTC area of emphasis.  After teaching Spanish, it was on to the University of Oklahoma for Library and Information Science.  I have worked in Oklahoma City and Tulsa Public Schools and in libraries at every level of K-12 education.  I am happy to be at Daniel Webster High School in the library where I belong, and where everything starts.

What do you do when you've read everything your favorite author has written? You find another author to love (at least until your fav puts out another book). Just click on the links below for a few ideas and suggestions, organized by genre, to make your search easier. (For those of you who don't remember the word "genre"...it means "form or type, particularly of literature".)
