Mrs. Michelle Gaskins

Hello Everyone!  I am the Digital Literacy Media Coordinator (Librarian) at VFL for the 2021-22 school year.  I worked at WCM for 4 years prior to coming to VFL.  I also worked as J.T. Barber Elementary's Media Coordinator for 8 years before that. 

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 work hard to make the Library a warm and welcoming place for everyone who enters.  I have added stations for students to participate in and a nice little cozy reading area in the library this year.  I really want all students to be able to find books they WANT and love to read.  

I have been married for 30 years and have 2 beautiful, grown daughters, Sarah and Madison.  I also have 5 felines (aka cats) that tend to rule our world.  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!
