Mrs. Alvarez

Hello! My name is Mrs. Alvarez, and I am the librarian at Henry Ford Elementary School. I love elephants, the ocean, and (of course!) reading! A few of my favorite authors are Jason Reynolds, Kwame Alexander, Juana Martinez-Neal, and Katherine Applegate. My favorite genres are realistic fiction, historical fiction, and graphic novels, but I always love checking out new books! I also enjoy spending time with my husband, our daughter, and our cat, Lily. I am looking forward to an amazing 2020-2021 school year, and I can't wait to meet you!
