"The half of knowledge is knowing where to find knowledge." Dodd Hall at FSU
My goal every day is to help the students of North Oconee pursue knowledge through reading for information and pleasure. To help improve their research skills so they may successfully navigate the extensive amount of information that is a part of their everyday life. It is such a delight to witness students growing more confident in their skills and making strides to synthesize this information into their own knowledge! My part is to give them the tools then watch in awe as their confidence grows and their minds blossom into colorful diverse gardens full of their own knowledge and educational experiences.
I have been a media specialist since 1993. First working several years in North Florida, while completing my master’s degree at Florida State University, and then moving to Watkinsville in 1997. I worked in Gwinnett county schools from 1997 to 2001 before coming to Oconee county schools in 2001. While working at Oconee County High School I was chosen to be the first media specialist at North Oconee High School when it opened in 2003. What an exciting time! I am always proud to be Titan and blessed to have the opportunity to raise my three children, Rose, Joey and Jack, in Oconee County.
