 Welcome to the
Wheeler Media Center!

We are here to help you discover the world!  Come in before, during, and after school to explore all we have to offer.
Throughout my 19 years of teaching, I have taught various grades and at various schools.  I even spent 3 years teaching in Mozambique, Africa with the US Peace Corps.  Let's continue to explore the world together!

Woof!  Hello!  I am the therapy dog here at Wheeler!  My doghouse is in the library where we have all the BEST books to read.  My job is to be here to make kids', and adults', day better!  As a part of Love on a Leash, I think of it as my duty to be the best Wheeler Wildcat I can.  Watch for me on Mondays - get it?
