In her own words . . .

“Author Alan Gibbons says, ‘The school library is a refuge and a place of discovery,’ and I could not agree more. The library is the perfect place for students to find themselves in books and to discover they are not alone. I love introducing students to new technology and watching their faces light up as they see a robot they coded move or a circuit they created light up. Nothing makes me happier than sharing my passion for books and opening the minds of our students beyond the school walls.”

In the words of others . . .

“She is truly one of the best librarians that I have ever had the pleasure of supporting. She is a model for others and never hesitates to help a friend, a school, a parent, a teacher, and especially a child. Ginny demonstrates all of the qualities and values that are aligned with our core beliefs. She represents the type of teacher that will make T-2-4 possible.”

– April Falcon-Blanco, Terrace Elementary Principal

“Virginia Boughter exemplifies the 21st century educator. Her environment encourages students to take risks, share their passions, and globally connect. Her Library Learning Commons has no limits.”
