Kannapolis Middle School
Media Coordinator
Kannapolis Middle School
I have spent the last 24 years in school libraries; elementary, middle, and high school, in private, inner city, and magnet schools of innovation, with the ever-present focus of creating diverse collections to provide students with mirrors, windows, and doors through literature. Books connect us and help us open our minds and hearts. I am currently at Kannapolis Middle School in my 7th year as teacher-librarian to 1,350 beautiful, diverse students and 100 faculty. We are working together to change the world, one book at a time.Twitter handle: @kellyjbeckhamWhat you are currently reading? I am reading the entire NC Battle of the Books List, “Just Mercy” by Bryan Stevenson, “Lies My Teacher Told Me Young Reader’s Edition” by James W. Loewen while listening to “The Diversity Gap” podcast with Bethaney Wilkinson.  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-diversity-gap/id1474097384 and Edutopia’s Diversity blog https://www.edutopia.org/topic/diversity
