About me: Hello! I am Ms. Lott, the Library Media Specialist at Pike Road Elementary. I have been at PRES for 3 years and I have been an LMS for 13. I received my Master's degree in Library and Informational Studies from The University of Alabama. 

I see the library as a place where our learners can develop a love of reading and learning through all types of books and materials. For example, I want our learners to explore animals in nonfiction and empathy in fiction, letting books be a mirror and a window. 

When I'm not in the library, I enjoy cooking, traveling, watching Netflix. reading (surprise!), being with my friends, family, my cat (Phoebe) and dog (Ollie).
