Meet The New LMC Director
Hello! My name is Tracie Marshall, and I am the new teacher librarian at Xavier High School. Before becoming the teacher librarian, I was an English teacher. Although I miss my traditional classes, it is a pleasure to see more students in the library. The LMC is in the process of updates its space with new furniture, carpet, a technology lab, and a collaboration classroom. I am excited to share this space with students, teachers, parents, and other community members.
Xperts participated in a Breakout EDU session during Xcel. Mr. Jason Marshall, technology consultant for Grant Wood AEA led the session. The code was cracked and the mission was a success. For more information on Breakout EDU, watch this video.
Destress With Coloring Pages
Students can color in the LMC during an open period. This has been a fan favorite, and teacher have even come to destress with coloring pages as well.
A maker movement has begun in the LMC. Teachers can reserve time in the makerspace for students and it can be used when students have an open period. One item featured in the makerspace is a greenscreen. More makerspace items will be added during the semester. For more information on a makerspace, watch this video.
45 Xtras (student tutors) are up and willing to assist any student with academic assignments, projects, and papers. Xtras are available before, during, and after school.
