Mrs. Gravatt’s Media Website

Welcome back…I hope you all enjoyed your summer vacations! 🙂  I am your new School Library Media Specialist.  I just moved to the sunny Florida coast from New Jersey.  I am so happy to be at OPE and can’t wait to work with my new students!  Let’s have a wonderful new school year!

As part of the media center program, I will utilize various resources to inspire learners and help them develop 21st century skills such as critical thinking and effective use of ideas and information.  Varied instructional methods will also be used to successfully integrate technology into the curriculum while helping students gather and evaluate information, utilize different forms of media and develop critical and creative thinking skills.  Through use of these methods, my philosophy of education is to be able to inspire children to search for wisdom and meaning in all that they do, to relish in their accomplishments and to continue on a lifelong journey of learning.
