About Our Staff

Ms. Mickelson

Picture of middle school media center instructor, Ms. Mickelson.Hi my name is Beckyn Mickelson and I work as a para in the Media Center. I really enjoy working here and seeing all the kids come through to check out books. It’s always fun to see what everybody is reading! When I’m not working in the library or reading, I like to be with my family, travel, snowmobile, go to the gym, and relax with my cats!

Mrs. Nickel

Picture of middle school media center instructor, Mrs. Nickel.Hi my name is Sarah Nickel and I am a Media Para at Worthington Middle School. I enjoy working with students and helping them explore the many resources that are available to them in the Media Center.  It’s great to see students get interested in a new book or author and to get excited about reading. I enjoy watching all the students grow and learn new things. 

I love spending time with my children and enjoy the many activities that they participate in such as dance, hockey and volleyball. I also enjoy gardening, baking and reading!

Mrs. Spieker

Picture of media center specialist, Mrs. Spieker.Hello, my name is Mrs. Spieker. I am the Media Specialist for the high school, middle school and ALC. I have worked in a variety of libraries for over 20 years in the Mankato area and I have seen many changes. One of which is technology, this is becoming such an essential part of libraries. There are so many more resources available to library users such as the internet, electronic databases and electronic books. 

I have two daughters who have been brought up in libraries and they love them as much as I do. Within the first two weeks here in Worthington we had a library card. I look forward to working with the students and faculty of Worthington Public Schools.
