    Hi everyone, my name is Jocelyn Gearheart and I'm the new librarian here at Paxson Elementary. I've been a kindergarten and first grade teacher for the past 10 years, and I'm excited to be making a change!

    I'm a big believer in the power of reading, and I'm passionate about helping kids fall in love with books.

    I'm excited to bring the same passion and creativity I had for my classroom to the library. I can't wait to help kids explore the world of books and discover new stories that they'll love. I'm also looking forward to collaborating with teachers and other staff members to create a library that is a welcoming and inviting space for everyone.

    So if you're looking for a librarian who is passionate about reading and loves to connect with kids, then you've come to the right place! I can't wait to meet you all and help you find your next favorite book.
