Lynette McManus

Hello! I’m your PHS North Librarian. This is my 15th year as a librarian, and my 16th year with Pearland ISD. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Spanish from Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington and a master’s degree in library science from the University of North Texas in Denton. My certification areas are Spanish, English, and School Library. I started my teaching career back in 1999 as a junior high Spanish teacher. 

Since I'm a librarian, I’m sure that it comes as no surprise that I love to read and talk about books.  I especially like to read young adult fantasy, mystery, and romance titles. My favorite book is Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.  Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family.  I live in Pearland with my husband and our three daughters.

Hi, my name is Silvia Sandoval and I’m excited to be one of your librarians at Pearland High School.  This is my 7th year at PHS and I’m looking forward to seeing you in the library.  After receiving my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Houston in Bilingual Education, I began my career teaching Kindergarten and then 2nd grade bilingual in Pasadena ISD.  In 2007, I received my Master’s degree in Library Science and was an elementary librarian before coming to PHS.  My certifications are in Bilingual Education, ESL, Spanish, and School Library.

I was born in El Salvador and moved to the United States as a child.  I remember the challenges that I faced when I started school because I didn’t speak English.  Thanks to many wonderful teachers I overcame many obstacles and my passion for education began.  Since becoming an educator I’ve been an advocate for all students and especially for immigrant students assisting them in their transition and educational needs. 

I’ve been married for 24 years and have two beautiful children, a daughter who is 21 and attending UH (GO COOGS!) and a son who is 16 and a junior at PHS (GO OILERS!).
