Meet the Staff

Kathy Goedeken, Teacher Librarian

kathygoedeken_(2)

I am the teacher librarian at Cleveland and Grant Elementary Schools.  I teach at Cleveland every other week.  In library class, students learn information literacy skills and are introduced to many wonderful authors and books.  I help students locate books at their interest and reading levels to check out.  I also develop the library’s collection by ordering new materials and discarding out-of-date and damaged materials. 

I graduated from Iowa State with a bachelor's of science degree in Early Childhood Education.  I also earned my master's degree in Library and Information Science at Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois.  I continue to take graduate courses to increase my knowledge and skills as a library media specialist.

My interests include playing with my son, traveling, hiking, photography, movies, rock concerts, and of course- reading.  I am very happy that I can share my love of reading with the students at Cleveland and get them excited about books.

I am the Media Secretary at Cleveland Elementary.  I work in the Cleveland IMC every weekday.  Getting to know students and staff to help them succeed in school and life is the best part of my job!  I'm also the technology contact for our building.  I like to create fun displays and contests in the IMC for students and staff to enjoy.

My interests are acrylic painting and drawing, gardening, sewing, fishing, working out, shopping, reading and spending time with my family and three dogs.
