  • Meet Mrs. Coffman

    Hi Northley community,

    My love for books, reading, and libraries led to my career as a school librarian. I have been Northley’s librarian for 12 years. Do you need a book recommendation? I’m always ready to offer reading advice.  You can stop by the library or email me: jcoffman@pdsd.org.


    I attended TCU for my B.S. in Education, McDaniel College for my MLIS, and St. Joseph’s University for additional graduate credits in Instructional Technology. My hobbies include reading, gardening and travel. My favorite book is usually the last one I read, and my favorite place to visit is usually my last destination. There are so many great stories and places in the world to learn about and experience!  Join me in discovering them.
