About Your Librarian

Hello, I am Ninfa Poole. I have been in education for the past 50 years. I graduated from South San Antonio High School, and earned my Bachelor's Degree from Our Lady of the Lake College. I earned my Master's Degree from Texas A&I in Kingsville, and am certified in Bilingual Education, English as a Second Language, Supervision, and Mid-Management. I have enjoyed my roles as an ESL teacher, Bilingual & ESL Supervisor, and Vice Principal here in Northside ISD. Since my retirement from Cable Elementary, I have substituted for NISD teachers and administrators for the past 18 years. This is my first experience substituting as a Librarian, and I love reading all kinds of books so this is a dream job!

When I am not rocking the school library, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have two grown children, and my only Granddaughter, Rylie, attends our neighboring school, Raba Elementary. We love to hang out at the nearby San Antonio Aquarium and enjoy seeing all the different sea life as well as the reptiles, birds, and mammals on display there.
