I have been the Media Specialist at North Windy Ridge Intermediate School since 2004.  I completed my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education at Western Carolina University. After which, I taught fourth grade in Haywood County.  I attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in a distance learning program to achieve my Masters in Library and Information Studies.​  I have achieved National Board certification. 

The Media Center operates on a flexible schedule.  Flexible scheduling allows students and staff to use the Media Center as needed.  Students can come throughout the day to checkout books, research, and create technology projects.  The teachers and I are able to collaborate on these projects throughout the school year.  

Technology has become an increasingly important part of the school Media Center.  Our students received one-to-one devices in January 2016.  I enjoy helping students learn to use different technologies and become 21st century learners.  Working with students and teachers to create technology projects is one of my favorite parts of the job.
