Library Media Center
Prior to becoming the Media Specialist at Alston Middle School in 2009, I taught middle school ELA and Social Studies for thirteen years.
Connecting the students, faculty/staff, and parents of Alston with fantastic books and resources is my passion. One of my favorite parts of this job is planning events, such as our Fall Bookfest and Read-In, which both celebrate and encourage reading.
Additionally, I serve as a Student Council sponsor and a member of the AMS House Leadership Team.
I am excited to be the media center assistant at Alston Middle School.
I have been an ELA teacher for thirty-one years and began my Dorchester Two career at Alston Middle School as a seventh and eighth grade teacher. Later, I was an ELA fourth grade teacher at Knightsville Elementary School and then Sand Hill Elementary School.
Serving as the media center assistant has afforded me an opportunity to help students discover books that encourage them to love reading. It is an honor to be back at Alston Middle School as the media assistant!
Our Media Center is open Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m.– 3:00 p.m.
Students come to the Media Center with their classes and are encouraged to visit the Media Center during classes and courtyard with a pass from their teacher.
Students are allowed to check out two books at a time for a period of two weeks. If students need a book for longer than two weeks, they are allowed to renew the book.
We do not charge late fees but if a book is not returned or damaged beyond repair, the cost of the book will be charged to the student’s account in Power School.
