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 27th year of teaching and 19th year as a librarian. She has taught in Guam, Florida and Texas. Mrs. Chasse is looking forward to her third year at AHJS.                                                                                                                                                            

Katy Coesens was born and raised right here in San Antonio. She played sports her entire life and enjoys being outside going camping, hiking and swimming. Ms. Coesens is a certified ESL teacher and is currently enrolled at the University of North Texas finishing her BA in counseling then she plans to work on her masters in Library Science. Ms. Coesens is excited about her second year in the AHJS library.

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.
