Degrees and Certifications:
School Librarian: Ms. Deloris Samuel
I am excited to have joined the Gibbes Middle School team as their new School Librarian! This is my first year as a School Librarian. I look forward to creating a space that is conducive to 21st century learning and instill in our students a lifelong love for reading and learning.
Before becoming a School Librarian at Gibbes, I had the wonderful opportunity to work under two amazing School Librarians, Pamela Williams (2018-19 SCASL President Elect) and Ayanna Mayes (2018-19 School Librarian of the Year) at Columbia High School. I have learned so much from these two women and hope to bring the skills and knowledge I’ve learned from them to Gibbes. My experience at Columbia High confirmed for me that working as an educator was my purpose.
I received my MLIS from the University of South Carolina and my bachelors of History from Francis Marion University.
