I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

     I have been part of the Leicester Family for 19 years, but have been an educator for many more years.  I have been teaching elementary school since 1989.  I started out in the classroom, teaching first, third, fourth and fifth grades.  I also have taught English to speakers of other languages to kindergarten through sixth grade students.  I have been a media coordinator since 2001 and have enjoyed working with all the students, as well as teachers, here at Leicester Elementary.  Come visit anytime and share in our love of reading!
Students who score higher on "tests tend to come from schools which have more library resource staff and more books, periodicals and videos, and where the instructional role of the teacher-librarian and involvement in cooperative program planning and teaching is more prominent."
