Ms. Jacquelyn Whiting - Library Media Specialist x6376
After 23 years as a high school social studies teacher, Ms. Whiting made the leap into library media and transitioned to the Learning Commons. She is also proud to be a Certified Google Innovator focusing digital and social media as tools for teaching and learning. She is an avid reader and committed to the purposeful integration of technology to enhance learning, instruction, and assessment. She blogs about these topics and more at JWBeyondtheStacks. If forced to choose, she will tell you that her favorite books are anything Dave Eggers writes, The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay and Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. You can follow her on Goodreads to see the rest of her cherished book list and on Twitter @MsJWhiting. When she isn't teaching, reading, or tweeting, she is hanging with her family (which includes three rescue dogs) or engaged in photography and painting, her two creative passions.
