Media Specialist, Marcy Aydt, Presents at FAME Conference

On October 19th, our media specialist, Marcy Aydt, had the honor of presenting at the FAME (Florida Association for Media in Education) state conference. During her program, Mrs. Aydt shared with a standing-room-only audience, from all over Florida, the many ways our Dommerich library engages students and motivates reading.  

For example, did you know that our Media Center ...

 Hosts 40 class visits per week
Encourages students to act as library purchasing consultants
Circulates 3,000 items per month
Supervises the school spelling bee and oration contests
Teaches chess to 100 eager students registered for the DES Chess Club
Broadcasts 180 live tv shows each school year
Boasts a collection of over 24,000 titles
and 
Awards 1,600 reading incentive charms a year to 3rd - 5th graders who pass oral quizzes
with Mrs. Aydt?

She attributes this success to strong support from teachers, administration, PTA and a Dommerich community that reveres learning and reading.  In an era when many media specialists are reporting fewer and fewer students entering the school library, Mrs. Aydt is pleased to see that the Dommerich media center is more popular than ever!
