Personal Message

I am so proud to be a Muir Lion! I love seeing how hard our kids work to strengthen their reading, speaking, listening, and comprehension skills. My favorite part of the day is when we have great conversations about books, authors, and writing that help us learn more about ourselves and our world. Readers are Leaders!

Burwell, Joni-Kay

Librarian (AM only M-F)

I'm honored to be your .5 librarian for the 7th year! What drives me? Watching students come to the library and see their eyes light up at finding a book they love! Also, when students stop me in the hall and ask me if I have a particular book, energizes me. Reading and libraries have carried me through many times in my life. I will always keep the door open for our children to learn and grow through beautiful stories and a peaceful place to lose themselves in their books.
