My name is Jan Zipp and I am excited to begin my third year as Librarian at St. Monica Parish School. From 2000 to 2011 I was the head librarian at Stella Maris Academy, a K-8 Catholic school in La Jolla, California. I am thrilled to once again return home to the great Pacific Northwest and the St. Monica Parish and School communities. As former parishioners of St. Monica Parish, our three children attended St. Monica Parish School before our family moved to San Diego in 1997. I am enjoying renewing old friendships here at St. Monica Parish and School.
I have a B.A. in Communications from the University of Washington and a Master of Arts in Teaching with a Reading Specialization from National University in San Diego. In addition to working with all students in the library each week, I will be assisting Mrs. Fulwiler and the fifth grade class with their literacy centers.
I look forward to coming to school every day and seeing our students get excited about reading and books!
