Welcome to the Media Center
Library Media Specialist
Welcome to the Angel Oak Media Center! This is my third year here at Angel Oak. Prior to teaching here, I was a media specialist in New York for the past ten years. I am originally from Port Jefferson, New York where I received my Bachelor's degree in Human Relations. I continued my education on Long Island and went on to receive two Masters' degrees in Elementary Education and Library Science. I relocated to Charleston in 2011. I recently had a baby boy in July, Jack Andrew and he is the light of my life. Besides spending time with my son, I enjoy reading, traveling and going to the beach. My favorite children's book is Corduroy.
Students come to the Media Center once a week for a 45 minute class. The class time consists of research based lessons and literature appreciation. Students return to the media center later in the week for a twenty minute book exchange with their teacher. We are encouraging students to select books on their lexile level.
Please feel free to visit the media center anytime and have a wonderful year reading together!
