Aurora Qualls is a very familiar face at Copperopolis Elementary as a volunteer and at times paid staff on the playground, the kitchen and within the classrooms.
With three sons, Austin, Ben and Adam all at one time or another students at Copper, Aurora has seen her fair share of the inside of classrooms and the library.
Last year Aurora was able to substitute in the library and really felt at home. When the position came open she applied at once.
Since Aurora has a passion for books it should come as no surprise that her favorite part of the job, besides all the children, is the unlimited access to books. "I love finding new books I haven't read."
Her favorite book? The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton.
