My name is Dawn Carter and I am so happy to be the librarian at Beverley Manor Middle School! This is my fourth year in the library and at BMMS. Prior to becoming a librarian, I was a classroom teacher in Augusta County for fourteen years. 
I completed my undergraduate degree at JMU and my graduate degree at Longwood University. I am a native of Staunton and have lived here most of my life. I am married to Roy and have two grown sons, Andrew and Peter, and a daughter-in-law, Leigh Anne. I also have an adorable chug (chihuahua/pug)  named Buddy and a sweet canary named Sherbet. 
In my free time, I love to read (go figure), attend plays at our wonderful community theaters, and surf the internet. My favorite band is Third Day, a Christian Rock band. I collect their CD's and attend their concerts whenever they are relatively nearby! I also direct the adult choir at my church and enjoy singing on our praise team.
   I am looking forward to another exciting year working with the students, teachers, and staff here at BMMS! Please feel free to stop by the library for a visit any time!
