I am the media specialist of Mankato East Junior High and Mankato East Senior High.
These are exciting times in the world of media! Some of the new initiatives I am currently working on are building an e-book collection, assisting teachers with building online courses, and getting all of our junior high students set up with iPads. All of these initiatives are designed to engage learners and provide a personalized learning experience for each of our students. I am so proud to be a part of all the great things that are happening in I.S.D. 77!
The media center is a great place for students to come before, during, and after the regular school day. Hours of operation are 7:50-3:45 most school days. We have computers available for school and recreational purposes, a vast print collection of books and magazines, and many electronic resources. There truly is something for everyone - - even the student who swears she (or he) hates to read! My staff and I are eager to meet each student and assist with any questions, curriculum needs, or reading advice.
The media center webpage is a great place to find some of the resources available to East students and their families. Check it out... and come see me soon!
