Hello, I am Velvet Barker, the librarian at SES. This year will be my 7th year as the librarian at SES and I absolutely I LOVE it!! I love helping our students explore and develop a love for reading. Our days are filled with collaboration among students talking about books they love and sharing information with one another.
Also, students love our library centers throughout the year where they can explore, create, build and just have a great time learning together. One of our favorite days is called MAKERZONE where our 3rd and 4th grade students find challenges, build structures, circuits, and compete with friendly games using Osmos, checkers, paper airplanes and so much more. The BEST part of MAKERZONE is watching students work together to find solutions to solving problems. It's just an incredible feeling to watch our students build relationships in MZ. Such a real world connection! Check out the MakerZone page to see some of our activities from this past year.
I love and support family engagement and believe it is such an important part of the success of our students. I am looking forward to partnering with every family to provide opportunities of growth for our students at SES.
