Simone (she/her) has been the librarian at the Newton School since 2012, back when her own children were students here. Simone has a B.A. from Dickinson College and an M.S. in Library and Information Science from Simmons College, and after working in a variety of library settings decided she likes working with young people best of all. When she's not librarianing hard, Simone enjoys needlecraft, working in the garden, and refurbishing old things, all while listening to LOTS of podcasts! She also runs an after-school Dungeons & Dragons club.
Simone is originally from the New Hampshire seacoast, but today lives in Strafford with her husband; two cranky cats; an adorable Chorkie; one Angora rabbit; an assortment of chickens; and occasionally their college-aged daughters. You can reach Simone at email@example.com.
