Ms. Pendleton

I have been the media specialist at Brightwood since 2006, and I love my job! Before working at Brightwood, I taught 5th grade for three years. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in English and Elementary Education and a Master of Library and Information Studies degree, both from UNCG. I am a National Board Certified Teacher.

At home, I have a wonderful husband, three sweet daughters, three kitties, one bearded dragon, and one snake. We enjoy biking, swimming, gardening, playing music, and reading together.

I am a future ready librarian.
