Stephanie Hubner

Stephanie Hubner has been an English teacher at Mar Vista High School, in the Sweetwater Union High School District, for ten years. Mar Vista High School is located on the boarder of Mexico, and is the most South-Western school in the United States. Her students belong to the lowest socio-economic level, with diverse needs both in and out of the classroom. She has taught a range of English courses, from English Language Development to Honors. Stephanie's ambition to become a Teacher-Librarian has led her to volunteer after school in her school's library to assist students with print and non-print information literacy and circulation needs. The Library Technician, Rosa Cadena, says that Stephanie is "very dedicated to the school and clearly willing to do extra work in order to gain valuable experience. When she works with students, especially those out of her subject matter, she is a resourceful problem-solver." Stephanie has been accepted into Azusa Pacific's Teacher-Librarian credentialing program, and is now taking her 6th class.


Barbara Chappell-Brown

Barabara Chappell-Brown started her library journey as a Library Page for the Rochester Public Library while earning her undergraduate degree. After working for the Eastman Kodak Company in Human Resources, she became a High School Business teacher for five years in the Rochester City School District. She then came back to the library as an Elementary Library Technician for the Poway Unified School District. Unfortunately, Barbara had to leave this position in 2007 when her house burned down in the San Diego Witch Fire, in order to rebuild her house. When she returned to Poway USD, there were no open positions in the libraries, so she now works as a Special Education Instructional Assistant at Mt. Carmel High School, in the Poway Unified School District. Throughout all this, she is now finishing up her Library Technology certificate at Palomar College, and has decided to go on to earn a Teacher-Librarian credential. She has been accepted into Azusa Pacific's Teacher-Librarian credentialing program, and started in February 2014. Her colleague, TL Sue Sheldon, says "Barbara never lacks for enthusiasm; always willing to lend a hand to students and staff, with a positive, sunny personality."
