Mrs. Miriam Shook
My name is Miriam Shook, and I am thrilled to be an Instructional Technology Specialist for Oconee County Schools! Before I began this role, I was the media specialist at Colham Ferry Elementary School. Before becoming a media specialist, I taught both first and second grades. I love being a media specialist because I can encourage students to love books and reading while showing them how the world of literature connects to everything they do! I also enjoy connecting STEM and technology to make literature come to life. I'm looking forward to a great year with the students at Colham Ferry and encouraging them to be lifelong readers.
My husband, Kirk, and I live in Bogart with our two dogs, Lucy and Libby. We enjoy going to concerts and UGA football and basketball games. I also enjoy reading, baking and decorating cakes, painting, and spending time with my dogs.
