Welcome to the Parkview Village Media Center, where reading takes you places!
I am Amanda Cassetta, the new Media Specialist at Parkview Village Elementary! I am blessed to be here! My passion is to show all students how much fun reading can be! Reading can take you places! It is my goal to help students find their love and passion for reading and not be able to put a book down! Let's work together to help lay this important foundation for the rest of their lives!
I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful daughters. I love to read, sing, and spend time with family and friends. I have been teaching for 16 years, having taught in public and private school settings. I taught first and second grades, and served as a media specialist for the last 10 years. It's a joy and pleasure to teach!
During these next few weeks, please make sure your child is reading! They should all have books from our media center, as well as have access to Ebooks from the Greensboro Public Library (NC Kids Digital Library.) Directions on how to access this awesome site is provided on the Parkview Media Center Canvas Course in the link "Public Library" on the main page.
Please have your child read everyday! It is so important! If you have a younger child that is not reading independently yet, please read to them and have fun with it! Talk about the characters (who the story is about,) the setting (where the story takes place,) the main idea (what the story was mostly about,) and ask them to give you a brief summary (what happened in the story/what are the most important events.) This helps with understanding! Ask your child to tell about their favorite part and why they liked it! Have fun with reading!
