Mrs. Caldwell

Welcome to our Library Media Center!

Thayer's Library Media Center is designed to meet the educational needs of our students and staff.  
There are three main areas in our Library:  the classroom area, the story pit and the computer lab.
Your student will have the opportunity to visit the Library on a regular basis to checkout books.  In addition to checking out books, students will have Library lessons that are collaboratively planned by the Classroom Teacher and Library Media Specialist. 
The Library Media Center supports reading through the following programs: Love of Reading Campaign, Show Me Readers' Award program, Mark Twain Readers' Award program, Six Flags Six Hour Reading Club, the Pizza Hut Book It program, and Accelerated Reader. 
Volunteers are always needed and welcome.   

A little bit about me

•This will be my thirteenth year at Thayer Elementary and my eighteenth year as a Media Specialist.
•Prior to being a Library Media Specialist, I taught Second and Third grade.
•I have been teaching for twenty-four years.
Home for me is a farm south of Fort Leonard Wood with my husband and two daughters. Our oldest daughter is attending Graduate School and the youngest is a Senior in college.

I look forward to working with your family.  If they have not already discovered it for themselves, I hope to show your children that the Library is a very special place!
