Karen Rickert

Welcome to the Kennedy Library! I am the Library Media Specialist and I help students think, grow, share, and create. I collaborate with classroom teachers and other specialists to support what students are learning in their classrooms. I also help students and staff find engaging books to read.

Previously, I taught 4th grade at Kennedy, and 3rd grade in Grand Island, Nebraska. I am very excited about my new role here at Kennedy and can’t wait to help everyone find a good book!
