    Donna Kearley,
    A native Oklahoman, I've lived in Texas since 1986.  My three degrees include a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a Master of Science in Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education from Central State University in Edmond, Oklahoma (now the University of Central Oklahoma).  My Master of Library Science is from the University of North Texas  in Denton. 
    I taught Kindergarten, First, and Third Grades before becoming a librarian. I have worked in libraries serving students from Early Childhood through High School and have been with Denton ISD since 2005.
    In my spare time I like to read, travel, spend time with my family and my dogs and work on genealogy.

    Melissa Freiley,
    I joined Denton ISD's Library Services in 2007 after earning my Bachelor of Arts degree in Government/Legal Studies from Texas Woman's University.  In addition, I hold an Associate of Science degree from South Plains College in General Science.  In January 2014 I began working towards my Master of Library and Information Science at the University of North Texas.  My interests lie in cataloging and metadata, especially for children's materials, classification, and digital libraries.
    I have many interests and never get bored.  My passion is animal welfare and rights, and I also love to read (especially children's literature), practice yoga, and walk outdoors.

     I’ve lived in Texas now since 1987. I am originally from the cold North – Nebraska. I got my Bachelor of Arts degree in Music, from Chadron State College, in Nebraska.


    I’ve worked in a small publishing company – Information Plus, at Pender’s Music and at Borman Elementary Library. It was Pender’s adopt a school association with Borman that led me to my job there. We helped them do inventory in the library (before they were automated!). After I was hired at Borman, I was involved with the process of getting them going on an automation system. We housed the server in our library. That’s how I got started in learning my current job.


    I like to read, garden, spend time with my family and travel.
