        Hello everyone!  I am Ms. Alexis Pflegl, though I usually just go by Ms. Alexis or Ms. Lexi (or Mrs./Ms./Miss Lex, Alexa, Alex, any other variation; I'm not picky).  It's the name I went by when I started working at the Boys and Girls Club here at Rock Creek in 2013.  Since then, the name has stuck.
        Back when I attended elementary and middle school in San Francisco, my father would often substitute in the school library.  Did I know I wanted to follow in his footsteps back then?  No.  But I always knew I wanted to work with children in a school setting.  So after moving to Auburn and attending Placer High School, I went to Sierra College and began studying Early Childhood Education.  However, once I started working at the Boys and Girls Club at the Rock Creek location, I realized I loved these students so much more.  While working at BGC, I decided to get more involved with the school and became a Noon Duty Supervisor on my birthday (September 29th) in 2014.  And once the Library Technician job opened up, I made the decision to leave BGC to spend more time here at the school.  I officially became the Library Technician one month before my son, Xander, was born even though I had been substituting long before that.  Since then, I have worked tirelessly to make the Rock Creek School Library a fun and exciting place to be.
Here's some more fun facts about me:
  • Our 2 cats, Neil and Geddy, are named after 2 of the 3 members of the band Rush - Geddy Lee and Neil Peart (R.I.P. January 7, 2020) - although that was not my decision.  Their full names now are Sir Geddy Lee Pants and Doctor Lord Neil DeCatte Peart Tyson Tubbington, the Eternal Dragon.
  • My all-time favorite book series is the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling, but if I had my way as a child, I never would have read the series.  When I was in middle school, I refused to read it solely because it was popular.  My father and I had a huge fight about it.  He wanted me to read it but I did not want to.  Eventually he told me to read just the first chapter and if I still didn't like it, then I'd never have to read it again.  Well, it wouldn't be my all-time favorite series if I had only read the first chapter...
  • Reading, writing, and language arts were NOT my favorite subjects in school.  I loved math and science classes the most.  It wasn't until high school when I met my best friend that I really discovered the joy of getting lost in a book.  I still have a reading problem these days; once I pick a book up, I can never put it down!
  • I love to cook, but have no clue how.  I can never follow a recipe exactly the same way twice.  Some of my favorite vegetables are zucchini, asparagus, and broccoli, and a new favorite I recently discovered: roasted red bell peppers.
  • Some of my favorite hobbies (besides reading, that is) include softball, crochet, crafting, building minor projects, making handmade gifts for others, and most recently, basic computer programming.
  • I consider myself to be a lifelong learner.  I plan to keep learning and going back to school until the day I die.  I am fascinated with learning languages, arts, engineering, writing, psychology, sciences, and anything that catches my eye. 
  • I am currently enrolled at Sacramento City College to earn my degree in Library Information and Technology, and plan to continue on to a Masters Degree in Library Information Science and a Teaching Credential to become a Teacher Librarian.
