Mrs. Kelly Hewes
My passion is to develop lifelong readers through literature that motivates curiosity and a media center that encourages readership. Reading is the key to improving vocabulary and fluency to develop lifelong learners. Creating the perfect environment for students to explore learning by providing relevant reading material and project based research exploration is the BMS Media Center's purpose. Enhancing the educational environment is our goal!
