Give a man a fish and you feed him for one day. Show him how to research on how to catch a fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

Hello, my name is Suzanne Hinesley. I have been a Media Coordinator for 21 years. 12 of those years were in Charlotte at a public Montessori school for years. Before I was a Media Coordinator, I taught third grade and then decided to go back to school to get a Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science. In 2008 I received certification as a National Board Certified Media Coordinator. 

My philosophy as a Media Coordinator is to promote reading and to facilitate students in becoming 21st Century and lifelong learners through research skills and student self discovery. With today’s technology changing rapidly, students need to be taught information literacy.
In my class the students use the latest apps and technology to create technology based projects. I also use the Big6 research model for the third, fourth, and fifth grades and the Super3 for kindergarten, first, and second grade.
