Welcome to R. A. Jones Middle School Library Media Center Website!

My name is Mrs. Ilsa Barry, I live in Burlington Ky with my husband and two adult sons.  In the summer I enjoy boating and camping with my family and friends.  During the winter months I enjoy catching up on all the books I have on my extensive reading list.

About me:

I attended Slippery Rock University from 1988-1991 as a Fine Arts Major.

Moved to Kentucky in 1998 and went back to college in 2004.  I changed my major to Elemenraty Education and graduated with a B. A. in Elementary Education in the Fall of 2006.

2007-2010: Elementary Arts and Humanitie/Title 1 Reading teacher at Chester Goodridge Elementary

2010-2012: Title 1 Reading teacher at Burlington Elementary

2010-2012: I attended the University of Kentucky where I earned my Masters of Science in Library Science and Library Media Specialist Certification

2012-2014: I was the Library Media Specialist at Thornwilde Elementary.  Since it was a brand new school I had the amazing opportunity to build the collection and set up the library.

2014: I absolutely LOVE young adult literature and am so excited about being the new librarian here at R. A. Jones and getting to promote a love of books onto all the wonderful students here!
