• The media center is staffed by Ms. Natalie Stanley (media specialist) and Ms. Lavonda Kennedy (media assistant).  They are shared with the staff of our sister-school, CJ Greene Education Center.  Media classes at Herbin-Metz are held on Mondays and Tuesdays.  Each class is 30 minutes long and includes the opportunity to share books, to communicate using PECS, Core Vocabulary, and speech-generating devices, and to participate in a hands-on activity.

    The media staff may be contacted by email or by phone.
