Hello Beagle Families,

My name is Shelly Gordon. I am the Library Media Specialist here at Rockwell Elementary. I am so happy to continue my life as a Beagle here at Rockwell.

A little about me? I am an artist at heart and spent 10+ years teaching art to students of all ages, and moved across the country a couple of times before finding my forever home here in the PNW! I have a BFA from Southern Oregon University and studied education at Seattle Pacific University. Graduating with a Master's in Teaching and Library Media Endorsement.

As I begin my 6th year here at Rockwell, I am excited to graduate my first class that has been with me since kindergarten. So exciting! I look forward to supporting and hosting many of our in-person and virtual programs and events. Check out the links on the right side of this page to see what is coming up at the Rockwell Library!

My focuses are: building equity in the library collection so that ALL my students can see themselves in the books they find in the library AND learn about other cultures and beliefs as well, finding ways to help all students access our resources, including students with physical challenges, special learning needs and those students coming to us speaking many other languages (other than English-we call them superheroes!).

I look forward to many more years doing my dream job here at Rockwell!


Rockwell Summer Reading ROCKS!

Hello Rockwell families, now that summer is coming to an end and our amazing readers are back at school, it is time to reward them with for their summer reading!

If your child participated in the King County Library System Summer Reading program, we are happy to reward that hard work with yet another prize from our library. Have your student bring in their completed KCLS Summer Reading Log to the library in the month of September to claim their prize! 

Good Job Beagles!
