Hi, Welcome to the School #9 Library Webpage
I am your child’s library/media specialist. I have been an educator for the past 15 years and have been a Library/Media Specialist in Belleville for the past nine years. I received both a Bachelors of Arts degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in English Writing and a Master’s of Education in Elementary Education with a concentration in library media from William Paterson University.
Our school's library media program supports early literacy skills and hopes to instill a love of reading in our students, which is the foundation to all learning. Additionally, our library program helps your child to develop essential information literacy skills that are a necessity for their future development. The 21st Century's child needs to learn and have the ability to locate, evaluate, synthesize, and communicate information.
I ask you to partner with me and your child's teacher in ensuring that we prepare your child for this very fast pace environment. Throughout the year, I will be introducing your child to various computer programs (Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) and several educational websites. If a computer is available please let them practice their skills. If a computer is not available, it would be very helpful for them to visit the Belleville Public Library.
Grades 3rd- 5th
