Ballard Library Media Specialist Katie O’Donnell is this month’s featured employee.

Name:  Katie O’Donnell

Position in the district and building where you work: Library Media Specialist at Ballard Elementary School

How long have you worked in the district? 10 years

What is your favorite aspect of your job? I love the sense of community at Ballard and in our district as a whole. One of the best things about being a special area teacher is that I get to teach all of our students and help them grow over the years. I love it when they come back to visit after they have moved on. Digital citizenship skills are a very important part of our curriculum, but my favorite thing will always be seeing a child’s eyes light up when a book inspires them.

What do you like to do outside of school?  I love to hike, kayak and travel with my fiancé Tony.  I also enjoy spending time with family and friends, exploring this beautiful area we live in, seeing live music and of course, reading!
