Mrs. Vanessa Batts

Hello everybody! My name is Vanessa Batts and I am the one of the Media Coordinators at ALMS.

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 12th year teaching and my 4th year as the Media Coordinator. Before going into the Media Center world, I taught third grade for 8 years.

I have always had a passion for reading and for helping students learn to LOVE reading. Being in a room full of books everyday and working with students to improve and extend their learning is a dream job. 

Creating a collaborative learning space where students have access to a variety of resources is our main goal when designing the Gator Learning Hub. 

 

Office Hours:

Mon., Tues., Thurs., Fri ->> 8:00-9:00am

Wednesday ->> 9:00-9:30am and 2:00-2:30am

See you in the Hub, Gators!

    Prisoner B-3087

    by Alan Gratz Year Published: 2013 Historical Fiction

    Survive. At any cost.
    10 concentration camps.
    10 different places where you are starved, tortured, and worked mercilessly.
    It's something no one could imagine surviving. But it is what Yanek Gruener has to face.
    As a Jewish boy in 1930s Poland, Yanek is at the mercy of the Nazis who have taken over. Everything he has, and everyone he loves, have been snatched brutally from him. And then Yanek himself is taken prisoner, his arm tattooed with the words PRISONER B-3087.
    He is forced from one nightmarish concentration camp to another, as World War II rages all around him. He encounters evil he could have never imagined, but also sees surprising glimpses of hope amid the horror. He just barely escapes death, only to confront it again seconds later. Can Yanek make it through the terror without losing his hope, his will, and, most of all, his sense of who he really is inside?
    Based on an astonishing true story.
