This is my first year at Aiken High School where I will be a librarian/media specialist.
I am returning to the Aiken County Public School system where I just completed forty years of employment as a teacher, and later employment as a librarian/media specialist.
First, I worked at LBC Middle School for eleven years, teaching reading, spelling, language arts, handwriting, health, civics, world geography, and social studies. I returned to the University of South Carolina for a master’s in library science. I then worked at the South Aiken High School Library for twenty-nine years.
After a brief retirement, and substitute work in the Aiken High School Library, I’m back again, promoting the importance of reading and research, and encouraging students to be curious about the world around them.
