Meet Your Library Media Specialist

My name is Jessica Stoker and I am so excited to be your new HMS Library Media Specialist for the 2021-2022 school year!  I am a native Houstonian, who grew up in Sheldon and graduated from C.E. King High School in 1998.  I attended Sam Houston State University where I received my bachelor's degree in education in 2002.  I began my teaching career in Galena Park ISD as a 5th grade GT/ESL math/science teacher and then was promoted to instructional specialist. 
 
After the birth of my second child, I spent several years as a stay-at-home mom and became heavily involved in the PTA at our local elementary, where I found myself spending more and more time in the school library.  I always LOVED the library and reading as a child, and volunteering in the library brought back a lot of those joyful memories.  I had discovered my new calling!  So in 2015, I decided to enroll in SHSU's online Masters of Library Science program and was blessed to be offered an elementary library media specialist position in Dayton ISD the following year at a brand new campus.  I graduated with my MLS in May of 2017 and I can honestly say that is the best career choice I ever made.  
 
I've been married to my incredible husband Robert since 2004, and we have two amazing kiddos.  My oldest child, Summer, is a Sophomore this year at Hargrave High School and my youngest, Tristan, is an 8th grader here at HMS.  Having the chance to do what I love right here in our local community, all while spending time with my children and their friends, is really the greatest opportunity ever!  I'm also a huge animal lover, so we have quite a few pets in our home including 2 dogs, a cat, a bearded dragon, 4 3-toed box turtles and 2 large Sulcata tortoises.  My hobbies include spending time with my family, taking care of all my critters, and of course...READING!
