John Mayo - Ridge Road School Library Media Specialist

Time flies when you're having fun.  How true !  I can't believe I'm starting year three at Ridge Road, and I've truly enjoyed every second.  We have a great staff, awesome kids willing to learn and our library is taking shape.  We are upgrading from the floor up, literally !  You may not notice the updated fiction or non-fiction works in our collection but I'll bet you'll notice the new carpet in the library!  Come check it out !

A little bit about me - I claim to be the first former Television Sportscaster turned Elementary School Librarian in the history of the world!  I can't prove that claim, but the odds are overwhelmingly in my favor!

My television career spanned nearly 15 years, with stops in Champaign, Illinois and Hartford, both at CBS-TV Channel 3's!  The role of Media Specialist is technically my third career, as I had the pleasure of spending 12 years with my children, Alex and Sam, as a "Stay-at-home-Dad."  We live in Guilford and even though I'm relatively new to the school, one member of our family is extremely familiar with the Ridge Road way.  My wife, Holley Claiborn, is a Ridge Road alum!

Parents, please join us in the library whenever you would like.  Volunteer your time during your child's scheduled class time with us in the library and come join in on the fun...our doors are always open!   Hope to see you soon!
