Biography

Mrs. Torres

My name is Kaitlin Torres, and I am the teacher librarian at Malcolm C. Hursey Montessori School. I previously taught high school English for three years, one year in South Carolina and two years in New Jersey, where I am originally from. I graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University in NJ, where I have received a Masters in Creative Writing and Literature for Educators, Masters of Arts in Teaching, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I am currently completing my Masters in Library and Informational Science at the University of South Carolina.

‚ÄčI love being Hursey's media specialist! My goal is to provide a school library that is the center of the school community. Hursey's school library is a place where students collaborate with others, pursue their interests, foster a love of reading and learning, attain 21st century skills, strengthen their critical thinking skills, engage in creative projects, and participate in new learning experiences. Along with aiding in student academic, social, and emotional growth, I also strive to be a system of support for Hursey's teachers by providing additional tools, pedagogical and technological knowledge, and educational resources to help them achieve their daily duties and instructional goals.

Please check this website frequently for all library related information, events, activities, and links to CCSD's technological platforms. I also encourage open communication between myself, teachers, students, and parents, so please feel free to contact me anytime!
