I am so thrilled to be here at NCES as the media specialist! This is my second year in the media center and my 11th year in the MCSD. I love being able to work with the students across grade levels and help develop a strong foundation for reading in each child. The media center is quickly becoming the learning commons for the school. With 21st century learning becoming more important in students everyday learning we are beginning to blend literature, technology, and makerspaces in the media center. This will allow students to explore, create, investigate, read, and problem solve. I can't wait to see where this year takes us!
