Jo Higgins - School Library Media Coordinator
Welcome! My name is Jo Higgins and I have been the Library Media Coordinator at Thomasville High School since August 2010. Prior to becoming a librarian, I taught English, Journalism, Speech, and Creative Writing in Florida and New Hampshire. I have a Bachelor of Science in English Education and a Master of Education in Curriculum & Instruction, English Education from the University of South Florida. Over time I became very interested in computers and technology and wanted to do something that would combine my love of literature and technology, and I found the perfect solution in library media science. So, in 2008 I went back to school and earned a Master of Library and Information Science degree from the University of Pittsburgh. After graduation I moved to North Carolina to be closer to family and got a job as the media coordinator at North Wilkes Middle School for a year before moving to the Piedmont Triad and working at THS.
Being your Library Media Coordinator is the best job in the world! If you have any questions or need information or resources, please come by to see me. I will do my best to assist you in any way I can. PLUS . . . the Media Center is a cool place to hang out. We have lots of fun resources for you to use.
