Meet Mrs. Bright
I am so excited to join the Lillian Schumacher community as the library media specialist. I am a Liberty native and attended Franklin Elementary, Liberty Middle School, Liberty Junior High, and Liberty High School. When it came time to go to college, I thought about going far away to school, but found that William Jewell was the perfect fit for me. I even had the opportunity to spend six months studying in Oxford, England. While there, I traveled to Ireland, France, Switzerland, and Greece. It was amazing!
When I graduated from William Jewell, I began teaching 8th grade Communication Arts in Independence, MO. During my first year teaching, I also earned my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Mizzou. (Go Tigers!) After several years in the classroom, my school librarian began encouraging me to attend library classes. I began taking courses to earn my Education Specialist degree in Human Services/Learning Resources at the University of Central Missouri, and I was so excited to graduate in 2013.
My love of libraries, books, and kids has now led me back home to Liberty and I am so excited to be teaching in the same district that has given so much to me!
