Check out the Staff in the Media Center
Welcome! I am Kelly DuPont and the librarian at Jones Dairy Elementary School. This is my 12th year at JDE and I love it. I spent 9 years in the classroom teaching third grade and fifth grade before going back to earn my Masters in Library Science. My experience as a classroom teacher has brought a great new perspective to the library.
I attended East Carolina University for both my undergradraduate and graduate degrees. Go Pirates!! Oh - purple is obviously one of my favorite colors. My husband, Jeremiah, and I live in Wake Forest and have 5 fur babies - 2 dogs(Gizmo & Lexi) and 3 cats(Theodore, Wilson, & Bella).
Library Philosophy Statement
A school library is the center of a school. It is a place that students, teachers, and staff feel welcome when visiting to find information, expand on ideas, or to simply come for pleasure. The library offers services to the school updating all patrons with the latest news, technology, practices, and books. The library has open circulation throughout the school hours. The library supports all stakeholders involved as well as the curriculum that the school follows. The librarian will keep abreast on all the latest news and information in the media and technology world and share this with teachers and staff. The librarian will collaborate with teachers on a regular basis to create and implement high quality, inquiry based lessons.
