Meet our Educational Specialists

Kate Clark, Librarian
Kate remembers the exact moment when she learned the etymology of the word “philosophy” in her freshman year of college, and has loved the word ever since. “Love of knowledge” is at the heart of what she does every day as a librarian. “People tend to think of librarians as book protectors or professional shushers,” she says, “but we are really the champions of knowledge. We connect people to information.” As a librarian, Kate draws on her experience as a classroom teacher, public library experience and personal love of sharing knowledge. She previously held the position of librarian at Pickle Elementary within Austin ISD, as a primary teacher at ACE Academy in Austin, and was a library intern at the St. John’s and Faulk branches of the Austin Public Library. When not working, Kate supports the arts by taking in a theater, dance or music performance as often as possible. Education: MLS in information studies, The University of Texas at Austin. BA in musical theater and psychology, Syracuse University (NY).
