He taught in a variety of nursery schools and daycare centers while he earned an MA in Early Childhood Education. In 1975, Munsch and his wife, Ann, moved to Guelph, Ontario. The Munschs have three children: Julie, Andrew, and Tyya (see them all in Something Good!).

Our goal is to help your child develop a love for reading. Your child will visit the library once a week for library time with his or her class. During this time, your child will check out a new book and complete various learning centers. The library is also open from 8:00-8:20 each morning. Please encourage your child to come take an AR test and get a new book.

If I can ever help you in any way, please feel free to contact me.
