Shannon Isom, the Media Specialist at Orange Park Junior High School in Clay County (2015-), has taught in public schools for 19 years in Florida and Georgia. She holds a B.A in Business Administration, an M.E in Secondary Education, and a Specialist degree in Instructional Technology.
Shannon’s library earned Florida Power Library status in 2019. Since joining FAME in 2015, she has co-presented at several conferences on topics from Flipped classroom concept to genrefying your library collection.
Locally, she supports school libraries by being a member of the NEFLIN Board of Directors after serving for several years as the focus group facilitator. At OPJH, Shannon collaborates with teachers across different subject areas and has established a student led book club.
Shannon’s vision is for the library to be a welcoming place for all, readers or nonreaders. For students to know that if they need help, the library is one of the places they can come.
