Mrs. Carla Torrez

About:

I am happily married for just over 30 years and have two amazing adult children. My daughter and I enjoy running, we have done several 5k, 10k, and ½ marathons, working on doing a marathon soon. I also enjoy hiking, last April/May I hiked the Camino De Santiago, over 588 miles across the top of Spain. My other interests are travelling, golfing, baking, and being a fan of the LA Kings. I enjoy working with the students in the library and encouraging them to read and try new genres. In the past few years, I have implemented the 40 Book Challenge and am amazed at the students who push themselves to reach reading levels they never thought they could.

I have been a librarian for 15 years. I started with LAUSD as a teachers-aid, office assistant and finally moved to the librarian position. I have a degree from LA Mission College in Interdisciplinary Studies.
