Mrs. Michelle Gaskins

Hello Everyone!  I am the Digital Literacy Media Coordinator at WCMS for the 2017-18 school year.  I have been at WCM since October of last year.  I worked as J.T. Barber Elementary's Media Coordinator for 8 years.  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 attended both WCMS and WCHS many years ago as a student, so working here is a bit surreal.  I have enjoyed making the Media & Digital Center a welcoming place, where staff and students feel comfortable.  I want to help students find books they WANT to read.  I also encourage students to be respectful of themselves, others and things, like our books.

I have been married for 26 years and have 2 beautiful daughters.  Both of my girls love to read, hopefully taking their love of books from me.  I also have 4 felines (aka cats) that tend to rule our world.  I love to read, scrapbook and walk.  My favorite place is the beach.  

I also consider myself to be a "life-long learner".  My mantra is to learn something new every day.  I expect everyone to want to learn new things too.
