My name is Carla Smith Fulghum. I am the media specialist at Westside Middle School in Barrow County. This is my fourth year at Westside Middle School and my 26th year in the field of education. Prior to working in Barrow, I worked in DeKalb County and Clarke County.
The reason I love my job is because it provides me the opportunity to help others, promote reading and encourage lifelong learning. I also love technology and books and being a media specialist combines both of those. It is also nice to be able to work with all of the students, teachers, staff, parents and administration. I truly feel like the media center is the hub of the school.
I hope that my blog will enable a place for the love of reading to be promoted. Your posts will help inspire others to read and to read new and intriguing material.
