In her 17th year as an educator, Mary Virginia Meeks delights in making books come alive for students while strengthening reading and writing skills. Mary Virginia taught 9th and 10th grade English and Reading for several years before returning to earn her Master’s degree in Library Science from TWU. A current middle school librarian, Mary Virginia has served as an elementary and middle school librarian in both public and private schools in Dallas and Frisco. Her library program in Dallas was featured on Nick News, and she enjoys writing and speaking regarding creative ways to strengthen library reading programs to keep students engaged in reading for life. An over-the-top event planner, students and parents who have experienced her annual Read-a-Thon lock-ins count the days until next year’s sign up which always has a long waiting list!
