Hello, my name Beth Hennes and I am the school librarian at West. My last name rhymes with tennis (o si hablas español, mi apellido se pronuncia como "mis genes").
Before working in school libraries, I had a teaching background in World Languages and English as a Second Language. I speak French, Spanish, and a tiny bit of Hmong! I also have a strong science background from my undergrad.
Professionally, I love eBooks and audiobooks with Sora (OverDrive). I am your local copyright and Fair Use expert--I actually co-teach a copyright course for other school librarians with a lawyer-librarian from UNC.
Personally, I love playing the violin, snowboarding, looseleaf tea, tech toys, and house bunnies!
