    Dear Parents/Guardians,

     

    This is my 3rd year teaching in the Camp Hill School District and my 7th year as an elementary media specialist. Prior to teaching media, I was a fifth-grade teacher for 15 years. I am excited to be working for such an amazing district and community and am looking forward to an engaging school year full of wonderful stories/books!

     

    Why is media important?

     

    I believe that media is an integral part of a holistic educational curriculum. Media is so multi-facet, and it is incredibly important that we teach students how to be safe and a good citizen online.  Students should feel comfortable using technology and communicating clearly and safely.

     

    What will students in media come to experience and learn?

     

    Media is a combination of literary skills and technology. In the younger grades, students will learn the organization of the library, various genres, and how to determine and locate the “just right” book. All grades will receive an intro to coding, time with Dash robots and STEAM explorations.
