Meet our Media Specialist
Jenella Johnson, Media Specialist
My name is Jenella Johnson. I graduated from Appalachian State University with a BS in Elementary Education and completed my Masters degree in Library Science from UNCG in 2012. I have been teaching for 22 years. I taught fifth grade for ten years before moving in to the Media Center in 2009. Previously I worked in Charlotte and at Bethany as Media Coordinator. Most recently I worked as reference librarian with the City of Greensboro Public Library before returning to Rockingham County Schools and Wentworth.
What's Happening in our Media Center
We are busy in the library checking out books, having Book Fairs, Celebrating Read Across America Week in March, Holding a Read A Thon in April, and participating in Battle of the Books for 4th and 5th graders.
Students enjoy our enhancement classes where they listen to stories followed by activities and lessons relevant to the topic, learn about Digital Citizenship and Internet Safety, browse and checkout books, and learn about how to use the library.
We have a Facebook page. Follow us here.
The Catalog tab allows students to search for books, place holds for books, and write reviews for books that they have read.
