Skroski, Maggie (Media Specialist)

Hello, My Name Is...

Maggie Skroski

I can't believe I'm starting my 2nd year as a Soaring Eagle!
I didn't know it, but I had been dreaming about being here at Best Buncombe
for a very long time. Although last year was off-kilter, I felt like I was home.
I grew up out west, obtaining my BS from Utah State University and later,
earning my Masters from East Carolina University.
I have traveled to the 48 contiguous states, and I'm closing in on visiting 50 countries. 
I have taught school in Texas, Illinois, and most of my teaching experience
has been with the Department of Defense Dependent Schools in Germany.
I grew up dancing and skiing but now I love to hike & bike
and then go home and read a book.
I have lived in Asheville for almost 25 years and I am still awed by its beauty.
I have six children and currently have two of those children,
along with three dogs and a cat, living at home.
My goals are
to inspire students with a love of books (any kind),
to help students find joy in discovery,
and create a desire in them to be life-long learners.
In all the craziness that is currently in the world,
we will make the most out of what we have and where we are.
It's going to be great!
