    Bio
    My name is Shannon DeSantis. I am a middle school/ high school librarian in rural Vermont. Hailing from Oswego, NY, I received my bachelor's degree in elementary education in 2010 from SUNY Potsdam and my Masters in Library Science in May 2013 from Syracuse University. I enjoy reading, tinkering in maker activities, and technology. I am an active member of the Vermont School Library Association serving as the conference coordinator, membership chair, and co-webmaster.
