My Students

The media center is no longer a place to simply just check out books and be on your way. It is more of a learning commons where students can explore with areas for a makerspace, computer lab, comfortable furniture, and more as well as reading spaces.

I work in a school of almost 1500 students who love reading and visiting the media center on a weekly basis.

My students love reading and I love bringing reading to life for them. From kindergarten through fifth grade, the joy of reading is evident in the media center.

Libraries become a different kind of learning destination when you imagine them as open, transparent spaces that invite student communication and collaboration.

I'm excited to keep updating the media center so that it is inviting as well as up to date with 21st-century​ learning.

My Project

Everyone loves a comfy spot to sit, especially with a good book. I envision a 21st Century media center with lots of flexible seating for my students. Slowly but surely I am redesigning the space to make this happen.

Who wouldn't love to read in a spider chair or work at a cafe style seat when researching?

These chairs will give my students a spot to sit to read and work together on projects.

The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows--Sydney J. Harris. By changing the look and feel of the media center, it will help students to be excited to come and read.
