• msc Hi! I'm Ms. Crowley.

    I became a library media specialist because my favorite activities are reading, learning & teaching new things, and talking about books. I search databases for fun, and spend a lot of time reading things online – ask me about the Wikipedia game! I am from Appleton, Wisconsin, and I am a Packer fan (obviously). I've lived in six states and two countries, and I've visited every continent except Antarctica. I moved to Chicago with my husband in 2008.


    I have a B.A. in English and Media Studies from Pomona College and an M.S. in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois, which is also where I completed my teacher licensing. I've worked in libraries since 2008, and I began teaching in 2013. Some other jobs I've had: ice cream scooper, newspaper reporter, web & graphic designer, bear builder, and debate teacher.


    Students often ask me what my favorite book is. What I always want to say is a quote from one of my favorite movies, Ever After: "I could no sooner choose a favorite star in the heavens!" I have at least five favorite books – but if I really had to pick one, it would be Lizard Music, by Daniel Pinkwater. (We have it in the LMC!)

    Please visit the Washington LMC website for more information about the library/media program.
