My name is Allison Verberk and I am the new library clerk for the St. Catherine's Learning Commons. I grew up in St. Catharines Ontario, just outside of Niagara Falls. I attended Brock University, where I completed a BA in English and History. I met my husband Kevin there, and we have been married since 2011. After graduation in 2009, we moved to Fort McMurray, Alberta, where I worked at the Keyano College Library. I am also a part-time student at Mohawk College, working toward a Library Technician Diploma. After four years of living in Fort McMurray, my husband and I looked south to find a more settled community, which led us to Holy Spirit Catholic Schools. After working in both public and post-secondary libraries, I am excited to start my first position as a school librarian. In my personal time, I enjoy working with computers, arts and crafts, board games, socializing with friends, and playing with my cat (named Nacho). Thank you to all of you who have been so welcoming as I join this wonderful school community.
See you in the Learning Commons!
