    Your Library Staff:(Yes, there REALLY are 2 Mrs. Sharps in the WES Library!)

    Mrs. Christina Sharp: UPK-4 Library Teacher

    I am very excited to be the library teacher again this year! Some of you may know me as a 2nd grade teacher, a position I held here at WES for 13 wonderful years. I graduated from SUNY Geneseo in 1988 with an undergraduate degree in Psychology.  After working in human services for several years, I pursued my dream to become a teacher and completed my Master's Degree in Education at Nazareth College.  I was very fortunate to do my student teaching here at WES and since then I have never left.  WES is truly "my home away from home."

    I live in Webster with my husband, Ken.  We have a son who lives in Austin, Texas and works in marketing and a daughter who is an occupational therapist.

    I have a true passion for teaching and children's literature and have spent hours this summer reading from the vast collection we have at the WES library. I look forward to teaching students all about the library this year and taking them on the great adventure of reading!

    Mrs. Alice Sharp, Library Clerk

    I have been the Library Clerk for the Elementary School since 2006. I graduated from Williamson High School and Finger Lakes Community College.  It is rewarding to work in the same district I grew up in!

    I grew up in Pultneyville and am now living in Williamson with my wonderful husband and two dachshunds, Ruby and Tebow.  I have two children in college.  My son, Jonah, is a mechanical engineering major at RIT and my daughter, Lindsey, is a pre-nursing major at SUNY Morrisville.

    I have a true love for children, teaching, literacy, and literature. I love libraries so much that you may even see me working at the Williamson Public Library where I am employed part-time as a library clerk.  I want students to become experts on topics they're interested in as well as develop their love of books and reading, and what better place to do that than a library?

    OUR MISSION

        Our mission is to ensure that all staff and students are effective users of ideas and information.  The library media program provides the entire learning community with the resources, environment and support necessary to fulfill the personal and academic goals of our students.

    OUR VISION

        The Williamson Elementary Library will be recognized as an effective, accessible and welcoming source of information and literacy support.

    BENEFITS

        The library provides a place for all students to be successful.  It protects the rights of all people to intellectual freedom.  It houses and provides access to resources for the entire learning community.  The library is a place for quiet reading and listening, or sharing and instruction.  Our space is utilized through individual, small and large group activities that meet both personal and academic needs.  The library provides space for building and district meetings, for social gatherings, and for performances.  The media specialist offers leadership in the integration of information skills with other curriculum objectives.

        Libraries have always been a place of integrated subjects, problem centered curriculum, and of resource rich environments.  Emphasis has  been on how to choose the best resources, access information, organize, synthesize the data, and then to communicate new learning.  All these skills are especially critical today when the amount of information and diversity of media is expanding so rapidly.  But let us not forget that the library has also fostered the imagination.offered time and opportunity to browse, reflect and daydream.  These are also critical needs of the citizens of the twenty-firstPROGRAM

        The elementary library plays an exciting and integral part in the education of our students.  We have a combination of fixed and flexible scheduling to meet grade level needs.  Kindergarten, first and second grade students come for weekly forty-minute lessons.  Our curriculum emphasizes both literature appreciation and understanding, as well as the organization, access and use of library resources and information.  Most of our third and fourth grade classrooms have a weekly scheduled time to exchange books.  Some teachers flexibly schedule book exchange opportunities as needed by individual students.  All third and fourth grade level teachers arrange several one-hour lessons with the LMS through the year to continue instruction and practice of information skills with their students.  Many teachers collaborate with the library program so that these skills can correlate with classroom units of study.  Because of our ample space, the library can accommodate a variety of simultaneous uses and is always available for classes, small groups or individuals to make use of our resources.
