Ms. Rhonda Dobbs
Welcome to the Woodridge Middle School Library! Since 2003, I have been a teacher and/or library media specialist in the Northwest R-1 School District. Over the years, I have taught both 6th and 7th grade ELA, and I was previously a library media specialist at the high school for six years. Being a librarian in the 21st century is so much more than just books. While books and reading promotion are definitely one area of focus, additional areas I will focus on are: technology tools, research and information skills, group collaborations, and makerspace exploration. The goal is to get students "future ready" and to encourage academic and personal growth through all the library has to offer.
On a personal note, Jefferson County is not only where I work, but where I've called home since 2001. My husband and I have two daughters, two cats, and one dog. It's a busy life, but when I can, I enjoy reading, traveling, listening to live music, and just being with my family.
Hope to see you in the library soon!
