Hi! I'm Margie Foster. I am so happy to be Librarian here at Fulton. I have been happily married to 'my person,' Jeff for 29 years. We have two dogs (our kids): Foxxy, a border collie mix, and our newest addition, Pearl, a jack russell. In my spare time, I love to hang out with friends, read, plan, and visit my family when possible.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Arizona State University in 1999 after serving as a teacher's aide in first grade for 5 1/2 years. I knew my calling the moment I stepped into the classroom. The pursuit of my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education made it very clear to me that I loved everything about school. I then went on to garner my Master of Education from Northern Arizona University in 2006. I truly consider myself a lifelong learner. I have been teaching in since 1999. Time flies when you're having fun! I joined the CUSD team in the 2003-2004 school year teaching Kindergarten. While part of CUSD, I have taught grades K, 1, 2, 3, 6, and I’m entering my 9th year as Library teacher. I am currently part of the inspired Fulton Elementary team as Media Specialist/Librarian-Teacher.
My Educational Philosophy
My goal is to help all students find the book lover within. I do everything in my power to provide support, guidance, and learning opportunities for all students. Reading is the gateway to success. I firmly believe every child has the right to a quality education. The skills and support I provide in the library are paramount in that process. What we teach children to love and desire will always outweigh what we make them learn. - Jim Trelease, Read Aloud Handbook
