Hi! I want to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Elaine Culick, and I am thrilled to be the librarian at Kenneth Gardner Elementary School. KGES has been my home for the past 20 years, and I am so thankful that I have been able to continue my career here. I began my career as an educator by teaching adult learners at a local Tech school and then on to third grade in another school district. I then settled into a fifth grade teaching position in Williamsburg County School District and taught ELA to 5th graders for 7 years. While teaching, I went back to school to pursue a masters degree in Library and Information Science and graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1999. This is my twenty-first year as the librarian/media specialist here at KGES, and I look forward to continuing this library media adventure!
