Shannon Chamberlin graduated from Miami University in Ohio and later earned a masterâ€™s degree from Pacific School of Religion in California, where she worked in the campus library to pay expenses. She has worked as a counselor and as a parenting educator, and has taught classes from kindergarten to college level. Since moving to Little Rock, she has taken foreign language courses and both undergraduate and graduate writing courses at UALR. She taught writing at UALR, where she also volunteered in the UALR Writing Center. In 2008 she graduated from the Summer Institute of the Little Rock Writing Project as a Teacher Consultant. Libraries have played an important part in her life from an early age, and UALR Ottenheimer Library in particular is a great resource now as she works on her retirement projectâ€”a Ph.D. Â in Education. The UALR Library has never failed to provide the resource she needs, whether it is a book from the shelf or an article through an online database. She is happy to be able to give back by serving on the Library Development Board as the UALR Library continues to serve the 21st Century needs of students today.
