“As a library media specialist, I always enjoy learning new technology and integrating it into the curriculum to promote creativity in learning,” she said. “By enhancing student-centered learning through technology, I will keep doing my best to help our students develop the skills necessary to succeed in college, career and life.” 

Congratulations, Ms. Joo!
