Mrs. Mandy Thornton

I have been an educator with Talladega County Schools for 22 years. I have been a Library Media Specialist for 17 of those 22 years. I enjoying working with students to ignite a love of reading and learning. Over the years, as with most things, my role has changed. No longer is the Media Center a "quiet" place. It has recently transformed into a STEAM Lab where students can be found collaborating, designing, communicating, applying knowledge, creating, and practicing soft skills needed for success in the future. The Lab is bursting with activities that EMPOWER students to take their interests and abilities to the next level.
