Do parents mention that they can't get their student to read at home? If you have heard any of this before, Epic! is a great tool to use in your classroom. With over 20,000 books available, students can read online, for free, in school with their own epic account. Join us from 7:45-8:15 am, on January 19th, to learn about this great resource.

Martha Bongiorno, library media specialist

This is my 2nd year at RHES and my ninth in education. My husband and I have two spunky children, Izzy (7) and Aris (3). Our family can often be found outside hiking around the coastal trails or fostering a love of all things nerd in our children by adventuring to historical places, festivals, or DragonCon. Before coming to RHES, my focus was in designing and integrating STEAM education into social studies and language arts right outside of Athens, Georgia and laying the ground work for the first STEM program at Arthur Williams Middle School in Jesup, Georgia. I firmly believe the library is the center of the school in which knowledge and understanding is constructed from not just books, but from each other and asking questions. When you visit the library, you will often hear classical Led Zeppelin playing and rarely will you find me "shhhing" students in our library. I am available to collaborate on projects and lessons, find resources, research, find the perfect book, and lend a hand or two to fix the random tech issues which arise when we least want them to.

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Middle Grades Education, a Master of Science in Learning, Design, and Technology from the University of Georgia, and my Ed.S. in Instructional Technology from the University of Georgia.
