Welcome to the Library Media Center!

Welcome to the BCMS Library webpage. This webpage will provide you with information about the library and the library media skills class taught in the library. This is my 9th year teaching and my 5th year as the library media specialist. Teaching is my passion!
        I believe that there are great moments every day in a classroom but I especially love it when you see the “light bulb light up.” I call them  the “Ah Hah” moments in my classroom. It is priceless to know that what you are teaching is truly making an impact in child’s life.
      My mother is the biggest inspiration that I had to become a teacher. I have watched my mom my whole life affect the lives of middle school students in such a positive way that I knew I wanted to follow in her footsteps.  She is retired from teaching now, but I still love to hear her stories and discuss the latest issues involving education. 

     I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in elementary education from Marshall University, 2001. I also have a master’s degree as a reading specialist from Marshall University 2003 and a Library Media Specialist endorsement, Marshall University 2007.
