HELLO! My name is Lisa Socha (pronounced So-ha), and I'm excited to serve as the librarian at Sienna Crossing!
This is my first year at Sienna Crossing and I already know that "It's Better Here." I am looking forward to supporting and encouraging students to be life-long learners and readers! Prior to becoming a school librarian, I was a senior public librarian of children's services. I have served in education for over 10 years within Central Texas, and 5 years in the Houston area.
I am originally from Central Texas, the Fort Hood and the Austin areas, where I lived for 20+ years. I completed the Department of Library Science and Technology master's degree program at Sam Houston State University. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English, with a specialization in Language and Literature, from Texas Tech University. Wreck'em Tech!
My husband, Matt, and I have a sassy 11 year old daughter moving onto middle school at St. Laurence Catholic School. We just celebrated our 14th year of marriage this summer and he is my greatest support! Our family shares a beagle, Smokey, and a spoiled cat, June.
I'm looking forward to a fantastic year with you and your students!
