Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Jan Monaghan

I have very happily been the Library Learning Center Director at Emerson School for the past 20 years.  Prior to this, I taught at Franklin Middle School, served as a teacher's assistant at College of DuPage and enjoyed more than 10 years working in the Children's Department of Wheaton Public Library.
I have a passion for children's literature and strive to provide our students and staff with the very best books. It is important to me that the Library Learning Center be a very welcoming and comfortable place for all.  My very favorite thing is sharing books with students and finding books that will excite them!
My B.S. in Education was earned at National Louis University.  I also have a MA in Library Science from Dominican University and  MA in Education from National Louis University.  
I truly feel it is a privilege to be the librarian at Emerson Elementary School.
