Welcome to the Media Center!  My name is Sarah Severson and I am the METI (Media and Educational Technology Instructor) at HFE! My job is twofold.  I promote and foster a love for reading through class checkout, ebooks, the book fair, and ordering new and relevant books that students are interested in.  The other portion of my job centers around creating a 21st century learning environment.  I am so excited to work with all the students this year!  I will be pushing into classrooms to lead and coteach lessons about educational technology, research skills, robotics, 3D printing, information literacy skills, digital citizenship, Seesaw, Office 365, and more!  I am working closely with teachers to help integrate technology into daily lessons.

The Media Center is open from 7:10 - 2:10 Monday - Friday for students. Parents are welcome in the library after front desk check-in. Parents are able to check-out additional titles for their students to support reading at home and also volunteer in the library with shelving books, shelf reading and special projects throughout the year. Please feel free to contact Sarah Severson at seversons@fultonschools.org if you have any questions regarding library resources,  Office 365 or any other library related question.

I am Mrs. Epps. I have worked at Heards Ferry since September 2009.  I joined the Media Center Staff six year ago.  I enjoy working in the Media Center because I have an opportunity to interact with all the students as I help them find books, materials and information.  The work is very rewarding because I get a chance use my training as a Professional Librarian.
