Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jeannne Calhoun
My name is Mrs. Jeanne Calhoun and I am beginning my 5th year as the librarian at St. Jude School. I have previously taught Pre-K, 2nd, 3rd and 6th grades. I have a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Gwynedd Mercy University. I believe that as a librarian my job is two-fold. First and foremost, I strive to encourage our students to develop a lifelong love of reading by maintaining a collection of varied genres of literature that will appeal to all of our students from Pre-School to 8th grade. The other aspect of my job involves providing guidance to our students as they develop research skills, by teaching them how to navigate the numerous resources available in our library and online to find credible information which they can use to learn more about our world around them. I believe in the importance and value of Catholic education especially in today’s world, and I am proud to be part of the dedicated and compassionate faculty and the vibrant community of children and parents that make up St. Jude School.
