    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 a 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 wonderful students and teachers.

    A little more about me, I have two fun, sweet, beautiful children, Josie and Jesse Roaden. The three of us enjoy traveling, amusement parks, and kayaking. We also share a love of animals, especially dogs. In fact, we are adding to our family very soon. We are getting a Goldendoodle puppy. We have already named him Cosmo DePooch. 

    Some of my personal interests are watching reading, shopping, gardening, canning, and decorating. I enjoy taking walks and working in my yard too. I love living in the mountains and watching life as it changes from season to season. 

    I truly love the Media Center at Bethel School. This is the best place to work and learn. 

    Hope to see you in the Media Center soon!

    Melody Ellison
