Wallace Gregg is a school that consists of grades K-5. Each class in grades K-1 visits the library at a set time daily. During these visits, our students are able to explore the library independently and check out books. Grades K-2 visit our library as a special area class. During this time, students have a chance to learn more about reading. During this class, we will utilize online digital books and physical books. We will also utilize digital resources and printed resources located in the library. Students are able to check out books anytime that the library is open without classes. Even though classes come to the Media Center, other classes or individual students may also stop by as needed.
Our school's Research Lab is also located within the library. It is equipped with 24 computers. Teachers may schedule a time to utilize the research lab with a class or small groups. The Research Lab is also utilized for AR testing, STAR testing, LinkIt testing, DreamBox, Lexia, and make-up testing.

I am Latoya Sims, and I am the Media Specialist here at Wallace Gregg Elementary School. This is my fourth year being a Media Specialist, and I am thoroughly enjoying it. Our amazing students at this school are doing great things and they are motivating me to find interesting ways to challenge and teach them about all the different resources that our school has to offer.
Before moving to the library, I was a 6th grade English Language Arts and Social Studies teacher. I have been here at Wallace Gregg for six years and enjoy every moment of it. I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Francis Marion University and my Masters's in Library Science from the University of South Carolina.
It is my belief that everyone can learn. Our children are our future, and we must fill their minds with all of the knowledge that it can hold so that the future is bright. One of the best ways of doing this is by getting our students involved in their learning. This can be done through books, computers, tablets, etc. Let's show the world our students!
