My name is Abby Goerz, and this is my first year as librarian at ORLS. I graduated from ORLS many years back, so it feels like coming home! I earned my bachelor's degree in Behavioral Sciences from Concordia University, Irvine and proceeded to work in social services. I then went back to school and earned my elementary teaching certificate at Southern Methodist University. After that I joined the teaching staff at Lister Elementary in Garland, where I taught second grade for the past four years.

My husband Ben, and I are excited that our daughter, Everleigh, will be joining me at ORLS in the PK2 class.

I have always had a passion for reading, and I am looking forward to sharing that passion with the students here!
