Meet Your Librarians

Kirsten Gunn

Born and raised in Rochester, MN, Mrs. Gunn ventured west at the age of eighteen. She attended Willamette University in Salem, OR, graduating with a BA in English.

Still undecided on a career path, she moved to the Seattle area and worked in Human Resources at a local insurance brokerage while pursuing interests in dance and theatre. Her first teaching experience was working as a choreographer for a summer theatre program for teens.

It was after this Mrs. Gunn decided to combine her interest in working with teenagers with her love of reading. She earned her Master of Arts in Teaching at Seattle Pacific University and became a school librarian.

Mrs. Gunn has been the Teacher Librarian at Highline High School since the fall of 2004 and earned her National Board Certification in Library Media in 2011.

Brenda Rodal

Born and raised in West Seattle, Mrs. Rodal currently lives in Burien with her husband, Bill. She has two children who graduated from Highline High School, Kevin and Kristen. Both graduated from Western Washington University.

In addition to raising her kids, Mrs. Rodal worked in the Highline School District for 8 years prior to coming to Highline in 2011 where she is the Library Assistant.

Her favorite part of the job is working with all of the great students at Highline.
