Mrs. F.-J.--School Librarian and Book Wizard


Mrs. F.-J.


Mrs. Lia Fisher-Janosz--or, as most call her, Mrs. F.-J.--
is Sharon Elementary's School Librarian. 
She is also the TTRT (Testing and Technology Resources Teacher).

Mrs. F.-J. has been at Sharon Elementary since the 2018-2019 school year, and she loves it!  She also loves sharing her enthusiasm for reading and theater with kids.  She has been involved in education since 2002, and has taught first grade, second grade, and fourth grade.  She's also directed a drama club and coached a forensics team for fourth-eighth graders. 

When she's not librarianing or teaching, Mrs. F.-J. is most likely geeking out over something about Shakespeare, Harry Potter, or Lord of the Rings.  You might also catch her wishing she could perform onstage at the American Shakespeare Center in Staunton, or perhaps talking excitedly about the latest great book she's read.  (Big surprise, right?)  If she were a character in a book, she would be Hermione Granger...or maybe Eowyn!

Some of Mrs. F.-J.'s (other) favorite things include: the color blue; seeing Great Blue Herons fly overhead; hearing the sounds of ocean waves, church bells ringing, or her son Nicholas laughing; smelling her daughter Rose's famous Snickerdoodle cookies when they're fresh out of the oven; and the taste of green tea ice cream and Concord grapes (but not together).

Mrs. F.-J. loves to sing. 
In fact, she used to be in an a capella group once upon a time! 
(Her group was very modestly called "Diva!")
