MEET YOUR LIBRARY MEDIA SPECIALIST
Hello to all my fellow book lovers! I am Mrs. Freeman Sequoyah’s Library Media Specialist. I am originally from Texas but have lived in Arkansas now for about 28 years. I graduated from Arkansas Tech with both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. I also have a minor in Math, which is funny because I did not like math at all in high school! I loved math in college though. I have worked for the Russellville School District since 1997. I have taught at second, third, and fourth grades. I taught for 18 years in the classroom before moving into the library at Sequoyah. I LOVE teaching in the library. I love bringing literature to life and showing students how easy it is to find a love of reading. Even if reading is difficult, or a struggle, there is always a way to find just the right book and just the right story!
When I’m not in the library, or ordering books, I Iove to spend time with my family. I have a husband, and we own our own business. I have two daughters who are both married, and a stepson who is also married. My husband and I have three granddaughters and one grandson who we love dearly. I love to spend time on our boat, travel, shop, work out in the yard planting new plants and flowers, walk our dogs, and every once in I love to have a lazy day!
