About your librarian:

Hello! My name is Janet Algase, and I am thrilled to be the librarian at RPE. I have been an elementary school librarian for 14 years. Before I became a librarian, I practiced law for just over a decade. I have a B.A. in American Government and Psychology from the University of Virginia, a J.D. from NYU School of Law, and an M.L.S. from the State University of New York at Buffalo. My major goal in teaching is to inspire my students to become lifelong learners. I agree with Henry L. Doherty, who said: "Get over the idea that only children should spend their time in study. Be a student so long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life." When I am not working, my favorite thing to do is to spend time with my children, who live in Los Angeles. My son, Lucas, graduated from Yale University, and is a television screenwriter. My daughter, Caitlin, a Tisch School of the Arts/NYU graduate, is an aspiring actress.
