Hello! My name is Mrs. Bayer. I am so excited to serve as the Library Media Specialist for the Greenwood and Walton Elementary Schools!
I earned a Master of Education, Library Media Studies degree from Salem State University here in Massachusetts and a Bachelor of Arts, International Studies degree from Pepperdine University in California.
I fell in love with the elementary library media program about ten years ago when volunteering at my children’s school. The library media program made such an impact on me that after 15+ years working in the telecommunications industry, I took a leap of faith to pursue a career in education and haven't looked back.
My favorite thing to do as a Library Media specialist is helping students find books they have a connection to and enjoy reading. I also love helping students learn how to collaborate effectively, find trusted information, share what they know using digital tools, and to become good digital citizens.
I live with my husband, two middle school aged children, and our 1 year old mini goldendoodle, Cali. I enjoy doing anything outdoors with my family, traveling, listening to music, and of course reading!
A few of my favorite books are The Good Egg by Jory John and Pete Oswald, The Circus Ship by Chris Van Dusen, The Giver by Lois Lowry, and The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can provide any support!
