Mrs. Michelle Gaskins

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!
