Mrs. Joyce, Media Coordinator Mrs. Cartrette, Media Assistant
Thanks for stopping by our media center page. We have lots going on this year. My name is Crystal Joyce and this is my seventh year teaching in the media center/library. I received my Masters in Library Science from Appalachian State University and my B.A in Communications from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and I ABSOLUTELY love being at Old Richmond Elementary. I have 2 children, Sarah (who is a sophomore and a Marching Mountaineer at Appalachian State University) and Stephen (who is a junior and a Marching Demon at RJ Reynolds High School). In my spare time, I enjoy basketball and tennis, reading, visiting historic sites throughout the South, and research. Currently, I am the North Carolina School Library Media Association By-Laws Chairperson and on the Forsyth School Media Association Board. Being a school librarian is the best job in the world!
My name is Suzanne Cartrette and I will be working at Old Richmond Elementary School on Tuesdays. I also work at Oldtown Elementaty School. I love reptiles. I have an iguana named Squirt and a beardie named Pancake. I look forward to working with you again this year.
We look forward to working with the teachers, students and parents. The media center is open from 8:30-3:30pm daily. Come by and see us!
