Rachel DiMaria, Librarian

I am delighted to be serving the Lake Murray Elementary community as the school librarian! I look forward to getting to know you and your children. If you have any questions or requests, please feel free to stop in or email

I have worked with children since I was a teenager. First, as a lifeguard and swim teacher, followed by after school and summer care programs through college. My career in education began teaching Fourth Grade and Preschool, before attaining my graduate degree.

I have a Masters in Library Information Science from the University of South Carolina +30 graduate hours. My undergraduate degree is a BAIS in Elementary Education, but I also have a certificate in Early Childhood Education. I acquired National Board status in 2003.

I enjoy writing in my spare time and my favorite projects are middle grade novels of historical fiction and fantasy. I am a long-distance runner and find it a good excuse to travel. The most exciting marathon I have run was in Big Sur, California with 26.2 miles along the Pacific Ocean!

My husband and I are blessed with two wonderful and sweet sons, Jake and Josh. We enjoy spending time together on Lake Murray, going to the beach, and visiting National Parks. I look forward to teaching your sweet children! If there is anything you need from our library, please let me know.
