Morgan Gibson

Library Media Specialist

Hello! I am so excited to be here at Monarch Elementary School. This community is wonderful, and I am grateful to be a part of it!

I received my Masters of Library Science from Emporia State University in Kansas in May 2016. I have a B.S. in Elementary Education from Austin Peay State University in Tennessee.

When I am not in the library, I love to play basketball and volleyball, and will try to play other sports as well. I love sports, and March Madness is the best time of year. I like board games, hiking, music (especially country music), good food, playing the piano, and of course, reading.

Christy Moyer

Library Media Assistant

​Hello and welcome to the Media Center! My name is Mrs. Moyer. I am the media clerk who will be helping Miss Gibson in the library and I am so excited to do so! I love reading, yoga, Ohio State football, and hiking with my amazing husband! We have 3 grown children and a pound pup named Jake and enjoy spending weekends at the lake! I feel very fortunate to be a part of this wonderful Monarch campus and look forward to watching our students grow! Happy Reading!
