Meet our School Librarian – Mrs. Bramwell

How long have you been a teacher at Grace?

This is my second year at Grace. Before that I was a children’s librarian at a public library for 13 years.

What do you love the most about teaching at Grace?

The students! They really love to read, and it’s so great sharing new books with them.

What is the best word to describe Grace?

Joy. I see so much joy at the school both in and out of the library.

What is a unique experience, talent, or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?

I like to attend library conferences where I get so many good ideas of things to do in the classroom. That’s were I met the hosts of the YouTube show Author Fan Face-Off and was able to get one of our students on the show. At the last conference I went to I was able to get a bunch of free books to give to students too!

What is your favorite thing to do outside of school?

I love baking, spending time with my family, and of course…reading!

What is your favorite Bible verse and why?

I don’t have one favorite, but I really enjoy the Psalms. I love hearing them sung. Paul Van der Bijl has arrangements of Psalm 42 and 91 that I could listen to all day.

What is the best advice you’ve ever heard?

You can’t read every book.

What is something that recently made you smile?

Doing a science project with my daughter.
