Hello!  Welcome to the Robert E. Lee Media Center!   We are going to have an exciting year of learning all about Reading, STEAM, and Digital Literacy!  My goal is for the library to be a true Media Center where students love to come to read, create, view, explore, and collaborate.


I am thrilled to be a part of the Lee faculty this year!  I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Mobile.  I then earned my Master of Arts from the University of South Alabama.  I taught 2nd grade in Baldwin County for 3 years before I stayed home for a while to be a mom and attend graduate school.  I have served the past 8 years in both Mobile and Baldwin Counties as a Media Specialist.  I am married and have 2 children, a 5th grade daughter and a 9th grade son.  I live with a menagerie of animals, including a Standard Poodle, a Golden Retriever, a mixed rescue puppy, a horse, cats, goats, and some honeybee hives...a chicken coop will be added soon! I love animals and nature.  When I am out of school, I enjoy spending time with my family and animals, reading, and just about anything outdoors. 

I enjoy visiting book stores and antique shops and finding new places to play and explore.  I particularly love visiting the mountains  A few things I love are coffees and teas, chocolates, books, and movies.  My favorite foods are Barbecue and Chicken Salad Chick!  As you can see, I have very diverse likes and interests, and I think that is one thing I love so much about the library!  There is just such a vast variety of things and places to read about and explore!


My favorite quote:  "If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need."-Cicero


Happy Reading!
