The CHS Media Center offers resources for students to learn, collaborate, create, and explore both at school and online. It has been my privilege to work as a media specialist at CHS for the past twelve years. My favorite pastime is reading, of course, but you can also find me spending time with my family & enjoying the outdoors - lately on an electric scooter (seriously, its pretty fun). Ask me about my alma maters Wheaton College,  the University of Tennessee, and ECU.
