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!
