“Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
~ 1 Corinthians 13:7

Welcome! My name is Amanda Louie and I am the librarian, a 5th grade small Math group teacher, and am Middle School Academic Support. I was born and raised in northern Utah and moved to Oregon in 1994 to attend the University of Portland, where I earned a Masters of Education degree with a reading endorsement. I began my teaching career at Holy Cross in 1998. I have taught at two other schools but returned to Holy Cross because it feels like home. I have taught in every grade from 3rd grade to 8th grade. I have also taught Title One Reading. I have completed the University of Notre Dame's English as a New Language program as a Hernandez Fellow through the ACE Program. I have an ESOL endorsement which helps me better understand how to teach students learning to speak English as well as support the teachers in their classrooms.

GENERAL LIBRARY INFORMATION

All students come to the library each week for a read aloud novel and to check out books. Reading or being read to each night at home is a key to success in school.

Please ask your child/children to share with you the book(s) that he/she checked out of our school library.

If you have any concerns about the book(s) being checked out by your child/children, please contact me.

My goal is to help your child have an enjoyable reading experience while improving reading skills.
