Woodland Heights Elementary
The Woodland Heights school library media program seeks to create a 21st century environment that promotes learning for all students by providing equitable access to information, teaching information literacy skills, and encouraging lifelong learning. The library media center strives to be a hub for collaborative learning that produces creative students who have an appreciation of literature, critical thinking skills, and a respect for others and self.
The school library media program will support the curriculum by collaborating with teachers, developing a collection that is representative of the community, and implement literacy instruction for students.
I am thrilled to begin my fourth year as Woodland Heights Media Coordinator. I look forward to the challenges ahead and plan to continue to make the Media Center a place the staff, students, and community will be proud of. I will provide 21st century learning for the students and plan lessons that encourage research from the children of Woodland Heights.
2017 will be my thirteenth year here at Woodland Heights Elementary. The first nine were spent in second grade. A position I still miss. Before Woodland Heights I spent seven years teaching Second Grade at First Flight Elementary in Kill Devil Hills, NC (Home of The Wright Brother's First Flight). I received my elementary education degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania
and my master's in Library and Informational Studies degree from the University on North Carolina Greensboro
. I have been married for sixteen years. My wife Sherrill (Mrs. Miller from First Grade) and I have a wonderful thirteen year old daughter named Molly. She is an eighth grader at Brawley Middle School. As a family we enjoy going on walks, playing in the backyard, traveling to the beach, and just being together.
