Hello! My name is Cindy Gallaher, and I am the librarian at VAES. This is my second year in VAISD, and I look forward to spending time with our students and helping them find books they will enjoy reading. I grew up in Kansas and have been in Texas for six years. Before moving here, I spent six years as an elementary school library aide. I love to read all kinds of books, but my favorite genres are mysteries and animals. It is a win-win when I find a book that is a mystery involving animals. My husband, Steve, and I have a daughter, Katie, who has a passion for helping and working with animals. Rounding out our family is our dog, Shelby, who loves to be included in everything we do.
