Hello Everyone! I am the Digital Literacy Media Coordinator (Librarian) at VFL for the 2020-21 school year. I have been the DLMC at WCM for the past 4 years. I also worked as J.T. Barber Elementary's Media Coordinator for 8 years before that. This year is proving to look so different than any other of my 26 years in education, but working together will allow the year to be a successful one for all.
I enjoy collaborating with teachers as well as helping them learn new technology skills. I also enjoy working with students who are willing to learn and expand their worlds through reading, books, and technology too! I believe every student is a reader and a leader!
I will be making the Media Center a welcoming place for when we are able to meet again face to face. I really want all students to be able to find books they WANT and love to read.
I have been married for 29 years and have 2 beautiful, grown daughters, Sarah and Madison. I also have 4 felines (aka cats) that tend to rule our world, and one old dog. I love to read, scrapbook and walk. My favorite place is the beach, but I also love to visit the mountains and take cruises to the Carribbean islands. Maybe one day I'll get to travel to Europe!
I also consider myself to be a "life-long learner". My mantra is: "Learn something new every day." I hope you'll "sharpen the saw" by learning something new every day!
