We Are a Future-Ready Library!
About the Teacher-Librarian:
Welcome to the LES library website! I’m Ms. Taylor and I grew up in the Lakewood area. I hold a BA in International Studies with a minor in Business and Spanish from Southwest Texas State University (aka Texas State), and I received my Masters in Library Science from Sam Houston State University. I earned my EC-6 Texas teaching certificate in 2001. Before I was a librarian, I taught first grade, third grade, and art for a total of 8 years of experience in public schools before becoming a librarian. I have been a teacher-librarian since 2011 and I LOVE my job!
I have two daughters and one son. I’m an artist and a book and movie enthusiast. I enjoy scrapbooking, creating home decor, roller-blading, and spending time with my family. I am very excited to be a part of Lakewood Elementary school. This is an amazing place to be.

I am Ms. Vest and I also grew up here in the Lakewood area! Before I came to the Lakewood Library, I was an animal trainer! I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Animal Science and minored in Wildlife Ecology from Sam Houston State University. My career as a Zookeeper began in 2008 in places like Louisiana, Texas, and Washington. I have worked with and trained animals of all shapes and sizes; the feathery, scaly, furry, and large carnivores! As an animal trainer and zookeeper, I found my passion for traveling with animals to educate our students about our natural resources and our natural world. I am happy to be at Lakewood sharing my knowledge with my favorite age of students - elementary!
I have two kids - one daughter and one son. I enjoy birding from my home, gardening, and crafting. My favorite genre is fantasy and adventure. I am excited to be here with the Lakewood family serving and inspiring our young readers!
