"I've been a Media Specialist/ Librarian since 2009. I love the Media Center! Kids can wonder, explore, grow in independence, gain confidence, and discover what they love. At Buford Academy we are able to encourage and build every student through the Media Center and I am so glad to be a part of it."
I have been with the Buford Media Center for almost 20 years . I love working in the media center because I have the opportunity to share the love of reading with our students. I have the best job in the world and look forward to coming to work each and every day.
I have been with the Buford City School System for 13 years, first as a substitute, then joining the B.A. family full time. I LOVE the Media Center! Working here I am able to interact with ALL the students. It is exciting to see them achieve so much throughout the year in Reading.
