Hi, my name is Vanessa Lein and I am the library associate here at Lovejoy. I have been with Des Moines Public Schools since 2019. I live in Des Moines with my husband Matt and our 3 children Ethan, Eric and Lindsey. I am very excited for this school year, I love coming to school every day and seeing the smiles on the students faces. My favorite part is seeing the growth that each student makes every year with their reading and their excitement when they pick a new book to read!
