Ms. Kelly Shumaker, Librarian

Hello Renaissance Elementary!!

I am beyond thrilled to join this wonderful school community as the new librarian! I can’t wait to discover the new worlds and exciting places we will go to in books!!

A little background on me. I have both my BA & MA in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University. In a time long ago, I was a first grade teacher. I taught for a number of years in Arizona. Then my husband and I started moving all around. We moved from Arizona, to Texas, to California, back to Texas and then finally landed here in Colorado! Whew!! During this time, we also started our family.

I currently have two kids who are students here at REMS. Cody is going into 6th grade & Chloe is going into 2nd grade. So I might be familiar to some of you, because for the last 4 years I have been hanging around the school, volunteering in the classroom, the library and at the front office.

I LOVE books and reading! I was the kid that was always at the library. In fact, I worked at the campus library in college, I loved books so much!! So now I have the amazing opportunity to combine both of my loves; kids and reading!
