Meet your Friendly Media Specialist




My name is April Cook!


I am very excited to be the media specialist at Hogansville Elementary School. This is only my 2nd year at HES, but this is my 20th year in public education and my 8th year as a media specialist. I attended Valdosta State University where I received my Bachelor's Degree. I attended the University of West Georgia for Master's Degree in Media, and then returned to Valdosta State University where I received my Ed.S degree in Instructional Technology.  


My job in the Media Center suits me well.  I get to see, assist, and visit with all staff and students all day long! Working with staff and students is rewarding; some of my favorite parts of the job are helping patrons find information that they can use and helping readers find books that they will enjoy reading. I love books! I love reading! I want to pass along the love of books to everyone I meet!


I am the proud mother of two daughters, Kaylynn and McClain. Kaylynn is a student at Georgia Tech (Go Jackets!!!) and McClain attends LaGrange High (Go Big Blue!!!). I love spending time with my family, antiques, the beach, reading, and camping.
