“I believe that every student has the right to feel loved, cared for, inspired and empowered. This is what I try to do everyday.”
Hi, I’m Tavia Clark. I’m a high school librarian at Currituck County High School in Barco, NC. I’m beginning my thirteenth year of serving students and staff. Prior to becoming a school librarian, I was a secondary English teacher. As an educator, my goal is to create a welcoming environment where children and adults feel that they are celebrated and loved. I strive to create a space that fosters creativity, collaboration, innovation and passion for reading. Through my work, I hope to teach, inspire and empower both students and staff.
I attended UNC-Wilmington as a NC Teaching Fellow for my undergraduate degree in English/Secondary Education and obtained my Master’s in Library Science from East Carolina University. In 2013, I was named North Carolina School Library Media Association (NCSLMA) Coastal Region Media Coordinator of the Year. I currently serves as the NCSLMA Social Media Co-Chair with my friend and partner in crime Mollee Holloman and am a member of the Friday Institute’s NC Digital Leaders Coaching Network (cohort 2). I also continue to impact the profession of Librarianship through my work with East Carolina University’s Department of Library Science Curriculum Committee as their alumnus representative.
I currently live in Norfolk, VA where I enjoy being a crazy cat mom, obsessing over Star Wars, reading everything I can get my hands on, listening to records, seeing bands play and baking delicious treats!
