My name is Joni Poynter and I'm the librarian at North Jackson Elementary. I have been in education for 22 years. I started my teaching career at Park City Elementary in a 5th and 6th grade split class. I moved into the library at Park City four years later and spent another four years there. After 8 years at Park City, I transferred to the library at Eastern. This year I work half time in the library at Eastern and half time in the library at North Jackson.
I am an alumnus of Barren County High School and Western Kentucky University. I am married to Choppy Poynter and we have one son, Bryce, who is a golf course superintendent in Evansville, Indiana. Bryce is married and has two beautiful daughters.
The media center here at North Jackson is a very busy place. You can find students in here all throughout the day checking out books, on the computers working on their coding skills or enjoying a fun book with me.
Our Fall Book fair was a huge success. We raised $9,800!! We keep $2,400 of that to be used for new books and library supplies. Thank you for your support of our book fair! Our next book fair will be in the spring.
