Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. D'anne Schnakenberg
Hello! My name is Mrs. D'anne Schnakenberg. I am starting my second year at Inman Intermediate Library Media Center, but I have been a Library Media Specialist for a number of years. I graduated from Nixa many years ago and I'm so glad to be back home. To say that I love books and reading would be an understatement...but my real joy is working with students to find their interest to connect with books. I love to watch kids get excited about reading when they find that connection with a book or series.
Before I was a librarian, I worked in radio and television for a number of years. I have been married to Tim for 26 years. He works for the University of Missouri as an agronomist (he helps farmers). We have two sons; Cord, who just graduated from College of the Ozarks, and Collin, who is a senior at Oklahoma Christian University in OK City.
Besides my love of teaching, I also enjoy hiking with my family, being involved with my church family, and spending time with my extended family. You can see family is a big word with me. I feel fortunate to also be a part of the Inman Team. It's a great place to be!
One interesting fact about me is that my last name before I married Tim was "Inman". I like to say that the district named the school after me...but the truth is, it's named for Nicholas Inman, the founder of Nixa, MO.
I look forward to serving as your Library Media Specialist this year and getting to know you and what your interests are.
