about the library

Library is part of the SNES Specials Schedule. Students have library lessons every three school days. During their library time, they have lessons planned by Mrs. Coffey and presented by Mrs. Lutz, the Media Assistant. Students are able to check out books each time they visit the library as long as they have returned their other books. Lessons in the library include book read alouds, typing lessons, technology lessons, and even some arts and crafts related to books they have read. Our main objective in the library is to help students love to read and to learn how to use technology appropriately and safely!

Mrs. Coffey

Hello!  I’m Amanda Coffey and I’m the Digital Learning Facilitator for South Newton Elementary!  I work with teachers to help them find ways to use technology in their teaching. I also help make sure all that all students and teachers have the technology they need and that it’s working correctly.  I work with Mrs. Lutz to create library lessons for her to present during specials and to make sure the library is running smoothly!  I also coach the Battle of the Books team and supervise the SNES News Crew!

I attended the University of North Carolina at Asheville where I graduated with a bachelors degree in Psychology and K-6 teaching certification.  I also attended Appalachian State University where I received a Masters of School Administration and a Masters of Library Science. I also received my AIG certification from High Point University.  

This is my 23rd year in education and my 16th year in Newton-Conover City Schools.  I have worked at a lot of different schools in our district, but I’m thrilled to be a South Newton Tiger

My husband and I have one daughter, Millie (Amelia), and we enjoy spending time outside, attending sporting events, and spending time with our family.
