Hello and welcome to the West Marion Elementary Library Media Center! My name is April Montgomery and I am the library media specialist at WMES.
I am married to Keith Montgomery. He is a farmer and works for Crop Production Services. I have two children, Chelsey and Nathan. Chelsey has three sons, Seth (5), Damien (2), and Fenyx (1). Nathan attends the University of Kentucky and is majoring in electrical engineering. Keith has two dogs, Dixie and Stevie, and several cats.
About My Education:
I spent most of my childhood in Bardstown, Kentucky where I attended St. Gregory and St. Thomas Parochial Schools. I moved to Augusta, Georgia when I was 13 and then moved to Marion County while I was in high school. I graduated from Marion County High School in 1990. I have a Bachelor's degree in elementary education from Campbellsville University and a Master's degree in library science from Western Kentucky University. I obtained National Board Certification in library media in 2010.
This is my 19th year teaching and my 18th year teaching at West Marion Elementary. My first five years were spent teaching 5th grade (one as a homeroom teacher at St. Augustine and four years as a Cooperative Resource teacher at WMES). This is my 14th year as library media specialist.
