Ms. Lucy Ballew
Hello! I am Gadsden Elementary's school librarian. I graduated from Winthrop College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. After graduation, I worked at the State Department of Education and at a finance company.
When my children were little, I taught Sunday school, Bible School, and preschool at my church and discovered that I enjoyed working with children and children's literature. So after all three of my kids were in school, I attended USC and earned a Master's Degree and Teaching Certificate in Library and Information Science from the University of South Carolina.
I was a librarian in Lexington/Richland School District Five for 15 years before coming to Gadsden Elementary. I am happy to be a part of the Gadsden Elementary community and enjoy helping students on their journey to becoming life long readers and learners.
