About Me:

My name is Sabrina Craddock.  This is my third year as an elementary school librarian.  My first year as a librarian was at New Vision School of Math, Science, and Technology, then with the merger of New Vision and Dillard Elementary, I became the Media Specialist for the newly merged school John W. Dillard Academy in July 2018.  Before becoming a librarian, I taught grades Kindergarten through fourth grade for seven years in Rockingham County.  I earned my Bachelor's Degree and Master's Degree in Elementary Education at Greensboro College and my Master's Degree in Library and Information Studies along with my Public Librarian Certification at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in December of 2019.  I am married and have two children ages 18 and 25.
