My name is Cheryl Frazier and I have been teaching for over 19 years in both Georgia and Florida. This will be my third year as a Media Specialist. I love books and I love to read, and this is DEFINITELY where I belong!
I have taught a variety of grade levels, including Pre-K, Kindergarten (Digital Academy), First, Second, Third, and Fourth. I have also taught all subject areas including Reading, Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies. I love bringing all of this experience with me into the media center.
I also LOVE to bring STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) into the library with engineering activities to enhance learning.
My hobbies include playing the cello, reading (of course), traveling, going to the beach, and playing with my cat (Frank) and dog (Peanut).
