As the Library Teacher at South Middle School, I get to do several of my favorite things on a daily basis - working with kids and teachers, and promoting reading and creating; I often tell people I have the best job in the whole world!
New this year in the Library Media Center is the SM MakerSpace. The MakerSpace is a place where students can plan, think, create, build, and make. Thanks to grants from the Salina Education Foundation and Credit Union of America, we were able to purchase all sorts of items for students, including Legos, hot glue guns, yarn, cardboard construction sets, electronics sets, and much more. The MakerSpace is open before school, after school and during Cougar Time. Check out this article from the Sept. 22, 2017 Salina Journal for more information.
