Sunnyslope's teacher-librarian, Patricia Jimenez, was honored by being named the 2016 Follett School Librarian of the Year. This award is given by the Arizona Library Association (AzLA). Each year the award is given to an individual who demonstrates notable or outstanding performance in a number of areas for school libraries. Many letters of support and recommendation were submitted, and with more nominations this year than the last, Patricia was honored with this prestigious award. Patricia is currently working on her Masters of Library Science at the University of Arizona and has been working tirelessly to keep Sunnyslope's library up and running despite the many renovations currently underway. She is also active in the AzLA as a member of the Professional Development and the Young Adult Summit committees. Patricia has been a faculty member at Sunnyslope for 24 years, 13 as an English teacher, and the last 11 as Media Center Director. Thank you for all you do Patricia, we are very proud!
