My name is Milly. If you are still thinking of me as Mildred, please stop now. I have wanted to be a librarian for a long time, and I’m excited (and terrified) to be starting the MSLIS program at Syracuse. I was a middle school language arts teacher for 6 years, but I stopped teaching when my first child was born. Since then, I’ve been mostly focused on raising children. My two kids, Rowan and Freya, are both lovers of reading now, so that’s another literacy mission accomplished. I live in Ithaca, NY with the two kids, my husband, and the rambunctious family dog. I hope to be a school librarian in an elementary or middle school someday.
