Mrs. Miriam Shook
My name is Miriam Shook, and I am thrilled to be the new media specialist at Colham Ferry Elementary School! I have been the media specialist for the past six years at Oglethorpe County Primary 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 getting to know the students at Colham Ferry and encouraging them to be lifelong readers.
My husband, Kirk, and I are settling in to our new home in Oconee County 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.
