Denisa Apri 2011l student of the month

Congratulations to Denisa, our April Student of the Month! 

Denisa is a Social Studies Education major who has worked in Reference and Instructional Services since January of 2008.  Her primary duties include helping patrons at the Reference desk and shelving in the Reference and Documents & Maps areas.  Denisa was nominated in part because of her “self-reliance and extensive experience”.  Her knowledge of technology and her ability to “come forth with interesting suggestions on how to approach a patron’s query” were also noted. 

Denisa is from Waterloo and has two younger brothers, one is a student at Allen College and the other is in middle school.  She student taught last semester at East High and Hoover Middle School and will finish her degree in May. She hopes to find a teaching position in the Waterloo area or in Des Moines.  Her favorite subjects to teach are World History and Psychology.

In her free time, Denisa likes to read and is never far from a book or her e-reader.   During the warmer months of the year,  you might find her hanging out with friends at a local park or swimming at the pool.  She also likes to travel and will go to Bosnia this summer with her family.

Thank you Denisa, for all your work at the Library and best wishes for the future!
