Angela Secrest

Hi, my name is Angela Secrest. I am a 18-year veteran teacher who decided to change careers and become a librarian, February 2017, in Maury County Public School System at Riverside Elementary School. I am a work in progress still. As a lover of learning, I am personally challenging myself to learn new things, to share what I’ve learned, and to learn from the experience of others.

Currently, I work as an elementary librarian. A former classroom teacher of K-6 grade levels, the change to the elementary librarian has been one of the more challenging and rewarding of my career. I love the enthusiasm of elementary students and teachers, and I am thoroughly enjoying my own personal growth as a student at University of Memphis.

My goal as an elementary librarian is to encourage a love of learning and reading on students and support faculty and staff by sharing and acquiring the best resources I can find. I strive to be a leader and partner in the process of making learning experiences exciting.

With new classes will come new names and challenges. I am sure that as the classes progresses my approach will change, and I look forward to seeing my own personal growth and working with wonderful colleagues that are like family.
