Kelly Frederick, LMS
Hi, I'm Kelly Frederick, and I'm thrilled to be the Library Media Specialist at Mayberry.
I am married to Doug, a nurse practitioner, and have two wonderful daughters: Ali, a photographer who lives in Los Angeles with her husband Seth, and Claire, who teaches physics at North High. I love reading and the outdoors, biking and hiking, art and animals, and driving Spud, my mellow yellow Volkswagen bug convertible.
I've been teaching for 34 years (29 at North High, 2 here at Mayberry), mostly English and math, and I am an AVID staff developer and an AVID site coordinator at Mayberry. I graduated an AVID elective class in 2016, and I miss seeing my AVID babies every day.
Yes, Wichitans read ~ a lot! Read ICT is the Wichita Eagle's 2018 challenge to read more and varied books. "This challenge is meant to inspire and encourage," according to the article by Suzanne Perez Tobias.
Panthers read a lot as well, so we have a special challenge just for you! Here's a link to a challenge log sheet, or you may pick one up in the LMC. Don't forget to come in to pick up a button for books read!
