Good day! I am Lake Region’s Library Media Specialist and manage both media centers. Some of the main services that I provide include: assisting students to find books for personal reading or class assignments, instructing students how to utilize our online databases and resources for class projects and assignments, assisting teachers with library media resources, and developing the collection in both media centers. Librarians and Library Media Specialists have always been a very import part of my life and have greatly influenced me. From them and my English teachers I learned to love literature which started me on this career path. I have the best job in the world as far as I am concerned. Every day I have the opportunity to interact with students and discuss books with them. I absolutely love this, and I also tremendously enjoy helping students to learn how to navigate our online resources and to work effectively on the computers as they complete class assignments. It is pure joy to see students grow to be confident digital citizens as they progress through their high school years at Lake Region.
