-Dr. Seuss

Hello, I'm Mrs. Guy!

My name is Jessica Guy and I am the library media specialist at West Blocton Elementary School. I have been teaching since 2013, and I have been at WBES since 2016. I love this community and this school. Go Tigers!! I have a passion for teaching, and I love children's literature. It is a dream and an honor to be able to hold the position I do here at WBES.

I graduated from the University of Alabama in 2013 where I received my dual bachelors degree in General and Special Education K-6th grade. I then attended the University of West Alabama to further my education, and I become a certified library media specialist in 2017.

My husband, Matt, and I have been married since 2014. We have three beautiful daughters who keep us very busy! We cherish our family time together.

Thanks for visiting the library page!

At WBES we love to read and learn through both tangible and virtual tools! We are learning how to be information literate and how to view reading as an enjoyable pass-time. We work hard and earn rewards for our reading. We are continuously looking for new books and other resources to enhance our library media experience. Feedback from our students, parents, staff, and stakeholders allows us to select materials that are best suited for our patrons.

Thank you for visiting our library web page!
