Library Media Specialist - Melissa Foy
After graduating from University of New Hampshire with a Political Science and Business degree, I worked in Banking as a Commercial Loan Officer in the Workout Division for many years. Subsequently, I took some time off raising my children and began substitute teaching at their preschool. I realized how rewarding this sector was and continued on the path by taking on a paraprofessional position at EKES. While working on my Master in Education, an opening in the Library came up and I became the EKES Librarian. Realizing this was my true passion, I soon received my Master Degree from University of Rhode Island in Library and Information Services and became a School Library Media Specialist. I continue learning about Library Media issues and participate in professional development as well as attend conferences and collaborate with the SAU 16 Media Specialists and our town public library. I also serve on the NH Ladybug PIcture Book Award statewide Committee. In my spare time, I read (of course!), travel, and spend time with my husband, my two EKES alum daughters, and my two Corgis.
