Please Welcome Guest Blogger Marlize!

Please welcome our new student guest blogger Marlize!  Marlize will be sharing book reviews and the journey of her Senior Research Project with us during the 2010-11 school year.  Here is Marlize’s biography in her own words:

“I am an expat from South Africa (my family moved here a few weeks before 9/11. What a great “Welcome to America!” gift). We lived in Missouri until my dad decided to move us here to Georgia right before my freshman year.

I’m hoping to attend the Art Institute. The plan is to have a double major in Food and Beverage Management and Culinary Arts with a Concentration in Baking and Pastry and a minor in Interior Design or Photography.

I think Britsh television is the best thing to happen to the world since air conditioning (case in point: Doctor Who, Torchwood, Nevermind the Buzzcocks, Friday Night Project, Little Britain… I could honestly go on for days.)

My taste in books ranges from Milton’s Paradise Lost to Scott Westerfield’s Peeps

to Perry Moore’s Hero. I basically like everything. Well… I really didn’t like the Twilight series after the first book. Meyer should have stopped with Twilight.”

The Unquiet Library is excited to have Marlize on board as a member of our blogging team!  Stay tuned for her first post coming soon!

The Unquiet Library Is Honored by State Board of Education as Exemplary!

Ms. Roxanne Johnson and Ms. Buffy Hamilton were honored today at the Georgia Board of Education meeting  as The Unquiet Library received recognition as one of two “exemplary” high school library programs for the state of Georgia.   What is the Georgia Department of Education Exemplary Media Program?

The Georgia Department of Education has designated the August 19, 2010 State Board of Education meeting to recognize three exemplary Library Media Programs.  In order to identify and highlight these programs, the Division of Academic Standards is solicited applications from schools.  Library Media Programs in three schools (elementary, middle and high) are selected for this recognition.  Library Media Specialists and GaDOE staff select the recipients based on the school’s written application, the principal’s narrative, a possible telephone interview, and a probable on-site visit.  This program is an opportunity to describe how the Library Media Program is meeting school improvement goals and improving student achievement.    The rubric for evaluating the program may be accessed by clicking here.
The Unquiet Library would like to thank the Cherokee County School District, Principal Dr. Bob Eddy, Creekview High School faculty and staff, our PTA, our parents, and our students for your support of our program.  We look forward to our program growing and continuing our efforts to be an effective partner in teaching and learning as well as a space where your interests, passions, and talented are honored and valued!
