Meet The Media Specialist

  • Daphne


    Welcome to the Willis Foreman Elementary School Library Media Center! Since 2011, I have been the library media specialist at Willis Foreman. In 1992, I received a Bachelor of Arts (Communications/Journalism) degree from Augusta State University.  I returned to ASU in 1993 and received my certification in Middle Grades Education (Grades 4-8).  I began working in the Richmond County School System in 1993, teaching fourth, fifth, seventh and eighth grades in several elementary and middle schools.  In June 2008, I received a Master of Education (Library Media Specialist) from Cambridge College. My hobbies include collecting teddy bears and jewelry.  In my personal time, I advocate for animals.  Although I love all animals, dogs hold a special place in my heart.   One of those dogs was my maltipoo, Daphne (pictured above).  My own personal message is for everyone to keep this in mind when exploring this beautiful world that we live in: with respect to humans, animals, and the environment, take only pictures, leave only footprints, and kill only time.
