Congratulations to Melissa Wolf from Bay Middle School, Bay Village City Schools, for being the OELMA/Rosen September 2022 School Librarian of the Month.
Melissa is a 2004 graduate of Ohio University with a degree in Education specializing in Middle Childhood Language Arts and Social Studies. She graduated from Kent State University with her Masters of Library and Information Science in 2009. Melissa is currently in her 14th year in education with 5 years as a classroom teacher and 9 years as a school media specialist. She is currently the district media specialist for Bay Village City Schools. Melissa enjoys finding new and innovative ways to use the Makerspace and library to showcase the talents of her students and staff. Outside of school she can be found leading her two daughters' Girl Scout Troops, reading a book, crafting and spending time with her family. Melissa's daughters attend Midview Local Schools and her husband is a teacher at Avon Lake, so she is always finding new ideas for her position through her family and their school experiences as well.
Melissa will have the opportunity to select a free set of books for the school library from Rosen Publishing Company. She will also be recognized at the 2022 OELMA Conference. We look forward to visiting OELMA’s Schoology site to read more about Best Practices occurring in libraries across Ohio, including Melissa’s exemplary work, “Giving Back to others through Makerspaces”.
