Mrs. Vanessa Batts
Hello everybody! My name is Vanessa Batts and I am the Media Coordinator at CHES. I grew up in Johnston County and love being able to work in the community where I live. I am married and have one sweet fur-baby ~ a yellow lab named Jimbo. This will be my 11th year teaching and my 3rd year as the Media Coordinator. Before coming into the Media Center, I taught third grade for 8 years. I have always had a passion for reading and for teaching students to LOVE reading as well. Being in a room full of books everyday and showing students how much fun you can have while you read is my dream job. I can't wait to read and have fun with all of the students at CHES each day!
