Meet the CHHS Librarian, Mrs. Yeager-Bowden kim bitmoji

Education and making a difference in young people's lives is my passion and calling in life. I believe that educators have the most important "job" in the world. My main goals as a high school English teacher of 16 years was to help students THINK CRITICALLY. I hoped they left my classroom with a better understand of how to grapple with the themes and profound life lessons found in literature and to help them better understand the world around them, themselves, and others. My enduring question for my students was always this, what can we learn from art forms about ourselves and others in order to be our most authentic and best possible selves? 
I hold a B.A. in English-Literature, an M.A. in English with a focus on YA & Children's Literature & Film Studies, and an M.S. in Library Sciences / Educational Technology, all from Texas A&M-University - Commerce. 
I am passionate about getting kids to READ, whether that be a graphic novel, poetry, non-fiction, or YA literature. I believe we have to work together to make reading and informing ourselves COOL again and utilize techniques to sift through the fake to get to the truths that exist, especially in today's technologically driven world.
