Meet Your Library Staff

 

Jo Chasse grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The long, cold winters were perfect for curling up with good book and some hot chocolate. She graduated from Augsburg College with a B.S. in Mathematics and received a M.Ed in Language and Literacy from the University of Guam. This is her 25th year of teaching and 17th year as a librarian. She has taught in Guam, Florida and Texas. New to the Junior School, Mrs. Chasse is looking forward to getting to know the AHJS students and being a part of the Alamo Heights Comnunity.                                                                                                                                                           

Elizabeth Flynn grew up in the sleepy coastal village of Morro Bay, California. It was there during the never ending months of fog that she developed an affinity for mystery novels, trains, and people watching.  She honed her research and writing skills at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and received a B.A. in History. Her career adventures include managing an ice cream shop, working in a homeless shelter, and teaching elementary-level outdoor naturalist programs.  The Alamo Heights Junior School library has brought her love of kids, books, and organization together.  Her ultimate goal is to be a detective. 

The AHJS Student Library Aides are an essential part of our library team.  These dedicated students serve our school community as library aides during one of their elective periods.  They assist with circulating and shelving materials, organizing and beautifying our space, and delivering books and equipment to our patrons. 

Our parent and community volunteers are incredibly helpful and appreciated.  If you would like to contribute your time and talent as a library volunteer, please contact us.
