Ms. Brianna Lipke
My name is Brianna Lipke and this is my first year at Washington Middle School, but my 14th year in schools and my 21st year in libraries!
I grew up in Idaho and then attended the University of Portland in Oregon for my undergraduate degree in Secondary Education with an English major. After graduating, I moved to Fukushima, Japan, and taught English to middle school students. Upon returning to the U.S., I moved to Missoula and began working at the Missoula Public Library while getting my Master's Degree in Library and Information Studies online from Florida State University. I worked as a school librarian for a couple of years, then moved to the island of O'ahu in Hawai'i where I was a PK-5 librarian for four years. I returned to Montana and spent seven years at a middle school in the Bitterroot Valley and now I find myself at WMS!
When I'm not reading or organizing things, you can find me camping, hiking, hanging out with my son, Bud, or working with my husband on remodeling our house.
I look forward to getting to know the students of WMS this year and connecting with you over good books!
