Mrs. Linda Kay Loper
I am SO blessed to be the library media specialist here at WJ Carroll Intermediate! I live in Belforest, have been married to my best friend for almost 40 years, and we have one son, who is an engineer. In my spare time, I love to read (naturally!), surf on the computer, go camping, and am very active in my church, Daphne United Methodist.
I have a degree in dental hygiene from the University of Alabama in Birmingham, a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education, and a Master’s degree in library media science, both from the University of South Alabama. I was a 4th grade teacher for years before becoming a library media specialist.
I LOVE these kids! I want them to catch the love of reading as I have. I try to convey to them they can go anywhere in the world just be reading a book! I also believe there is no skill more critical for lifelong learning than seeking and using information effectively. I believe as a library media specialist, I play a unique role helping to assist our students in acquiring the skills to be 21st Century learners. I am a life-long learner, also, along with our students. Thank YOU for allowing me to teach these precious children!
