My name is Meg Cantrell. I am very excited to be the media specialist at East Point Academy. I earned my Masters in Library and Information Science from the University of South Carolina in May of 2006 and then was a media specialist at Sandhills Elementary. As a media specialist, I enjoyed working with students and teachers to promote reading and to facilitate information literacy, as well as helping teachers with resources for their curriculums.
Prior to becoming a media specialist, I earned a BA of Philosophy and a cognate of English from the University of South Carolina in 1998 and was a classroom English teacher for grades 6, 7, and 8. My extensive use of the library as a teacher compelled me to go to graduate school for Library Science.
Currently, I work part-time as a children’s librarian in the Children’s Room of Richland Library and am the proud mother of two daughters; Mattie Marie who is in 1st grade and Tamlin who is in PreK 4. Both are looking forward to a new school year at East Point.
