My name is Jalisha Adams and I am the new Media Specialist at Tobacco Road Elementary for the 2023-2024 School Year. This will be my second (2nd) year in the Richmond County School Year, I was the Media Specialist at Terrace Manor last year (2022-2023). Before coming to the school system I was in the Public Library System in Edgefield County for 13 years, so having the opportunity to work in the school system is a dream come true, yet such an honor. It is my duty to teach effective use of the Media Center and its materials through library skills and instruction. I love to read and I plan to promote reading through various activities appropriate to your child's age group.
