Hello Pink friends!  My name is Vanessa Rivas.  I am absolutely thrilled to be the librarian at Pink Elementary.  I have spent the last nine years teaching amazing fourth graders at Pink.  I am married and have three daughters: Reese is a freshman at Wakeland High School, Aubrey is in fifth grade, and Monreau is in first grade.  I attended the University of North Texas for my Bachelor’s degree in teaching and have continued my education to earn my Library and Information Science Master’s Degree.  My passion is reading and fostering a lifelong love of reading in children.  I always loved visiting the library as a child, checking out new books with each visit.  I was the type of kid that always had my nose stuck in a book!  Reading opens the mind to new ideas, places, and adventures.  There are so many fun things to do in the library including Makerspaces, library programs, and engaging lessons with technology.  I am looking forward to working with all the wonderful students at Pink.  It’s going to be a terrific year!
