My name is Terri Marks, and I am absolutely elated to being able to serve the students, staff, and surrounding communities at the school as the new media specialist. I bring to Bessemer an array of experiences that will make me a better educator-servant. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English, a Post-Bachelor in Special Education, and a Master of Library and Information Studies. I also have experience teaching literacy to students on different grade levels, including high school.
It is my mission to create a fun learning environment that will encourage students to read for not only the classroom, but for fun. My philosophy as a teacher librarian is if students enjoy reading in general they will eventually become better readers in every aspect. It is my goal to ensure the students here at Bessemer have great relationship with reading and literacy.
How many books can be checked out at a time?
Kindergarten-up to 2 books
First grade-up to 2 books
Second grade-up to 2 books
Third grade-up to 3 books
Fourth grade-up to 3 books
Fifth grade-4-5 books
I really want to check out a book, but I have one book that is over due. Can I still check out a book?
Yes. Students are more than welcomed to check out a book. However, if there is more than one book overdue, no new checkouts will be allowed.
