Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Julia Rion

Julia Rion, Library Media Specialist

I am so excited to begin my 2nd year at Lady's Island Elementary and to work with
our students in the Library Media Center!
I grew up in Georgetown County and attended the University of South Carolina
 in Columbia for my undergraduate degree and again for my Master’s in Library and Information Science. I worked as a school librarian in Cherry Hill, New Jersey,
for 20 years and love sharing my enthusiasm for reading with students! I am also an advocate for effective use of educational technology. I plan to work with our staff to help LIES students build research skills and become informed, respectful digital citizens. I am happy to start this year knowing the majority of our students, having developed relationships with them last year. Outside of school, I like to read, to garden, and to spend time with my dog, Woody, and my two cats, Henry and Lucy. My oldest daughter is working on her Master's Degree in School Counseling at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Her younger sister is thrilled to be living in her first apartment in Philadelphia--where she grew up. My daughters are not able to visit often, but when they do, we explore and enjoy the best of what Beaufort has to offer 8-D
