Meet the Librarian

  • Hi!  I'm Kathy Cherry, the Librarian here at Piner.  I've loved books for as long as I can being a librarian is the best job in the world!  I grew up in Clovis, New Mexico and when I was in high school, Science was my favorite subject. So when I went to college, I studied Biology and Geology.  Just as I was getting ready to graduate, one of my professors asked me to teach a class...and that's when I discovered I loved teaching!  I graduated from Eastern New Mexico University with a degree in Biology and then earned a secondary teaching certificate.  I taught science in the Clovis schools for 14 years and then I decided to move to Sherman where I started teaching at Piner.  I taught 8th grade science at Piner for 4 years and went back to college to study Library Science.  I graduated from UNT with a Master's Degree in Library and Information Science and moved into the library.  I miss teaching, but now I get to see all the great kids at Piner, and not just the ones on my team.  I have a very handsome son, Brian, who has a B.S. degree in Occupational Health and Safety  and a beautiful Daughter-In-Law, Melissa, who is an elementary teacher.  They live in San Antonio.  I also have 2 very spoiled chihuahuas named Brady and Doodle.  Come and see me in the library and let's talk books!
