Ms. Susan M. Knibbs

Hello. My name is Susan Knibbs and I am the librarian at Andrew Jackson Language Academy. For the first 18 years of my career, I was a classroom teacher and Special Ed teacher here at AJLA as well as in Taos, New Mexico and Michigan City, Indiana. For the last 20 years I have been librarian here at AJLA.

I have 2 Master's Degrees: one in Special Education and the other in Library Media. I achieved National Board Certification five years ago in Library Media K-12.

Our school library mission is to help every student develop a love of reading, become a skilled user of information, knowledge and ideas, and explore the world through print and electronic media. I look forward to working with your child(ren). It is my greatest pleasure to watch my students grow over the years as readers and information users.

I am so grateful for your dedication to our school and of course, our library. I am here to meet not only your child's needs, but yours as well.

I look forward to an awesome and amazing school year.
