This is Hudson Chamineak and I dressed up for the 2019 Read Across America Week!
My name is Emma Stephens and I am the Media Specialist at Baker Place Elementary! My deep love of reading began as a 3rd grader when my own media specialist encouraged me to buy Harry Potter and the Sorecer's Stone at my book fair. I read the whole book in a week and was HOOKED. From that day on I read everything I could get my hands on and 20 years later nothing has changed!
This is my dream job and I am so excited to be in my 4th year at Baker Place. I can't wait to help every student fall in love with reading, become successful and ethical users of technology and to have the most fun possible in the Learning Commons!

My name is Betty Rice and I am the Media Clerk at Baker Place. This is my 4th year here and I love it more each day!
A few fun facts about me:
*I have loved books and reading since preschool.
* When I was in sixth grade, I won my school’s spelling bee.
*I began volunteering in the library when I was in middle school.
* I have lived in five states and visited twelve others.
* When time and money permits, I love to travel. J
* One of my most interesting jobs was working as an Evidence Tech with the GBI.
* My husband and I have four wonderful children – 3 sons and a daughter!
* One of my favorite books is the classic: Charlotte’s Web.
* Forget electronic books – I prefer the print copies. There is something about turning the actual pages.
* Most weekends you can find me spending time with family, shopping or reading! That is if I don’t have a trip planned!
