Welcome to the SMS Media Center page! :)
My name is Jenna Thompson. This is my 16th year at St. Mary's. Many of my years here have been teaching math and science, however, this is my third year as the school media specialist!
I see K-5th grade students once a week for library and technology skills. I will work closely with junior high teachers to provide assistance with projects and offer plenty of book checkout opportunities. I will also see 6th grade students daily for a novel study class.
My goals are to help students foster a love of reading, to gain knowledge and for pleasure, provide students with materials and services to support and extend classroom learning, model how to access and process literary information, and continuously grow in technological skills.
I look forward to a great year with your child! Please email me with any questions! :)
