Hello! My name is Amanda McCoy and I am thrilled to be the new librarian at Sunflower Elementary. After graduating from the University of Illinois I started my career as an elementary music teacher. I went on to earn my master's degree in library and information science from Emporia State University and this will be my 12th year teaching in the library. My passions include weaving diverse literature into lessons, leveraging the library to build community, and projects that widen the worldview of our students and connect them to others globally.
Outside of school I enjoy performing in plays and musical theatre, staying active, and going on outdoor adventures with my husband and energetic dog. I am excited to partner with our families to spark and nurture a love of reading in each student.
