Media Specialist
Screen Shot 2015-08-03 at 1.44.50 PM.png
I have been a Florida Educator for 22 years.  I taught Elementary school for three years and have been a Media Specialist for the past 19 years.  I have worked at all three levels as a Media Specialist:  Elementary, Middle and High School.  This is my seventh year at Hillsborough High School.  I received my Masters degree from the University of South Florida in Library and Information Science in 2000.  I enjoy working with students to help them find a good book and to utilize 21st century technology for projects and research.

The Media Center mission is to ensure the students and faculty of Hillsborough High School are provided with the information literacy skills necessary to be successful and responsible citizens in the 21st century.  These skills include promoting literacy and providing experiences with a variety of technology and resources in the classroom.
