I am Library Media Specialist. I manage both media centers. I assist students with finding books for personal reading or class assignments. I also show students how to use the online databases to find materials needed for class projects and assignment. I've been working at Lake Region for 3 years. The first two years I taught Reading. The best thing about working at Lake Region is that I really enjoy collaborating with my colleagues and working with the students. It is very rewarding to help students find a book that they really enjoy, and it is also wonderful being able to help them when they are working on projects. What lead/influenced me to being Library Media Specialist was the fact I became an English teacher because I loved literature. Working in the media center lets me promote reading to the students. I truly enjoy discussing books with others, and in the media center I get to do that frequently.
