Welcome to Stroman Middle School Library


Hi! My name is April Gips and I am the librarian at Stroman Middle School.
I was born and raised in East Texas. After graduating from East Chambers High School, I attended University of Texas at Arlington where I majored in History and minored in Anthropology. I have taught High School Social studies and Middle School Reading and Math. I met and married my husband and we moved here to South Texas to be closer to family. I am very excited to be here at Victoria ISD and in particular here at Stroman Middle School!
I have my Masters in Library Science from Texas Woman's University. I have always wanted to be a librarian and I love being the librarian at Stroman. This is my dream job and I am excited to be fulfilling that dream!

In my spare time, I love to read , spend time with my husband and our labrador retrievers, and go to the beach or the lake whenever we can!
