    Greetings All!

    I am Melody Ellison, the Bethel School Library Media Coordinator. A little bit about me, I am a proud graduate of Appalachian State University with a Master's Degree in Library and Information Science and an Undergraduate Degree in Elementary Education. I am Watauga County native and have worked in our school system since 2001. I love literature and sharing information research tools with students! I enjoy every aspect of working at the library with Bethel's beautiful students and teachers.

    A little more about me, I am married to a wonderful and kind man, J.R. Ellison. I have two fun, sweet, beautiful children, Josie and Jesse Roaden. The four of us live on a farm with our family dog, Buster, and two kitties, Elma and Ruby. We love our home and living the farm life. 

    Some of my interests are watching movies, reading, shopping, gardening, canning, and four-wheeling. I also enjoy the sandy, sunny beach, or a cozy morning, sipping coffee, watching the snow falling on the ridgeline.

    In closure, I am likely to hug and love on you, no matter who you are, as you enter Bethel School...you have been warned.


    Mrs. Melody Ellison
