I am Eileen Badger and I am the Media Specialist at WWES. I earned my Masters in Education from UF, GO Gators, in 2004. Certified as an Educational Media Specialist Pre-K-12 since 2016. This is my 20th year teaching and each day I am fortunate to be part of your child's growth and success at WWES.
Mission: Our media program seeks to create an environment that promotes learning for all students by providing equitable access to information, teaching information literacy skills, and encouraging lifelong learning. We are striving to provide students with materials to produce creative students who have an appreciation of literature, critical thinking skills, and respect for others as well as themselves. The library supports the curriculum in the classrooms by collaborating with teachers and developing a collection that represents our community for our students.
What is the Accelerated Reader (AR) Program?
AR Program, Goals, and Incentives- Accelerated Reader, AR is a computer-based reading motivation program designed to encourage students to read. AR tests student comprehension of books they have read. The program is simple: the child reads and then takes a computerized test on the book. They answer simple multiple-choice questions that check their recall of basic facts and events in the book.
