The Media Specialist position has been filled by a myriad of individuals this year. After Linda Livingstone took an extended leave following family medical issues, Jennifer Colby took over the position.
Now, Jennifer Driscoll has been asked to fill Colby’s shoes after she decided to take a full-time media specialist job in Novi at Deerfield Elementary School.
Driscoll is not completely new to the job of media specialist, however.
“I have worked in the media centers all around the district for several years now, so I’m familiar with the systems and how libraries work,” Driscoll said.
Driscoll confirmed that the position is still a “temporary, substitute type of position.” However, until Livingstone returns, Driscoll plans to be very proactive in the library.
“I’ve only just gotten started, so I’m just kind of seeing how things stand,” Driscoll said.
As her tenure continues, however, Driscoll said she plans to make changes that suit the students.
“I don’t have any specific plans quite yet for changes in the library, as I’ve only been here for a few days,” Driscoll said. “If there are any changes that people would like to see I would be happy to hear them.”
