Hello Beagle Families,
My name is Shelly Gordon. I am the Library Media Specialist here at Rockwell Elementary. I have had so much fun getting to know all the Beagle students and families in my first two years here in Lake Washington School district. It is such great community, that my husband and I bought a home here in Redmond to be an even more integral part of it. 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. I was very happy to be offered a position here at Rockwell and have been welcomed so warmly by the students, staff and community. 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!
We are excited to share that we will begin a Curbside Library Book pickup program during remote learning. The program will begin in Early November, 2020 (first pickup Fetch Day, November 6th). Students will receive instruction on how to access our online Library Catalog and put books on hold. All Rockwell students can check out 2 books at a time and keep them for 2 weeks. Please see the video link below with instructions for families to assist in this process. Books will be distributed on Beagle Fetch Days only. Happy Reading and if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Mrs. Gordon at: email@example.com
