Mrs. Trinidad

Hello all!

My name is Emily Trinidad and I'm excited to return at APE as your librarian this year! I got married in March, so you probably know me by my maiden name: Ms. Westfall. This year, I'm starting my second year in the library and sixth year teaching. I love being able to help students navigate the library and technology!  

I was born in Houston and grew up here in Fort Bend with my five brothers and sisters. I attended the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM and was originally studying Nuclear Engineering, but I soon realized that my passion is actually in education, as I spent much of high school and into college coaching swim team, tutoring, or giving lessons of some sort. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.S in Elementary Education in December 2018 and immediately moved back home to Texas. After teaching for several years in the elementary classroom, I made the transition to librarian in February of 2022 at Austin Parkway! 

When I'm not at school, I love spending time at home with my husband and our two cats. I fill my time with crocheting, swimming, and, of course, reading!
