Our next membership meeting on Thursday, February 26 will feature Lucretia Miller – Duval County Public Schools Teacher of the Year 2008. She has been an educator for eight years in Duval County, and is the Media Specialist at Chaffee Trail Elementary School.
Her expertise are incorporating technology into lessons by developing electronic resources for use in the classroom. She has thoroughly enriched her students educational experience by designing a library website with links and information, of which she has received awards for her world-wide recognition of the website.
In her words:
“To be the heart and hub of the school, the school community and stakeholders must view the school media center as vital – where there are an abundance of current, quality resources to teach each of the standards, interesting literature for students to escape into, a welcoming environment in which to think, absorb and learn and a qualified school library media specialist to tie it all together and be the catalyst for higher-level thinking and increased student achievement. I am proud to say that this reflects the school library at Chaffee Trail” (Miller 1)
