WELCOME TO THE MEDIA CENTER! - MEET THE MEDIA SPECIALIST

Hi, my name is Ramona Burnett. I am the Belwood Elementary Media Specialist. My family includes my husband David, a civil engineer for the City of Calhoun and our two children. Emily is a KSU Political Science Major and she also completed a Masters Degree in Enviornmental Policy from Bard College in New York. She is currently Manager of Food Waste, Organics, and Composting for the State of North Carolina.  Ethan is working on a degree in Web Design and Development. He works as a graphic designer and online investor. We also currently house three dogs and two cats.

The goal, for the media center,  is to become a Future Ready Library to better prepare your children as 21st Century Learners. We constantly add new, relevant, and interesting print and digital reading materials. SORA and EPIC are two of our iPad App reading platforms.  Movable updated furniture, iMacs, and hands on MakerSpace materials have been added.We will continue to expand our STEAM and MakerSpace Programs.

I am also currently coaching our State Award Winning 4th and 5th grade TOME Reading Team. Students compete in online reading competitions and submit digital projects. This team does an outstanding job of representing Belwood Elementary School.
