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.
