About the Library Specialist
My name is Rikki Steinmetz and I am the Library Media Specialist for Pleasantdale Elementary School.  I taught 7th and 8th grade Math for 8 years in Lyons, IL. I have an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education, Mathematics, Social Sciences, and Middle School from Illinois State University; a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University; and recently have received my Masters in Library and Information Science from University of Illinois. I am looking forward to a great year!
