• Jacqueline Arthurs earned her BA in Library Science (School Media) and her MS in Library Science (Public Library Administration)  from Florida State University's School of Information Science. She started her education career in Okaloosa County working  as Head Media Specialist in one of the two remaining K-12 schools in Florida. She moved to Central Florida  and worked three years in Osceola County before transferring to Lake County Schools. She earned National Board Teacher's Certification in 2004.
     
    She was the media specialist at Groveland Elementary for one and a half years, and had the honor of working at Clermont Jr High on Highland Avenue from 1990 until the school (and the media center), moved to East Avenue and changed its name to Clermont Middle School in 1995. In 1999, Clermont Middle School was closed and she had the privilege of once more moving the media center to Windy Hill Middle School when it opened under the direction of Sharon Powell and Dr. Hal Cuddy.
     
    Her father was a pilot in the US Air Force for over 20 years. She was born further north than you can imagine, and went to six elementary schools, two junior high schools and, thank goodness, one high school. She truly understands what it is to be the "new kid" in school. After her family retired form the military, she worked full time (after high school & weekends) in the family business as a graphic artist.
     
    She has one adult daughter, who graduated from NYU and played bagpipes in the NYU Pipe Band. Her daughter now resides in Mountain View, CA.
     
    Ms. Arthurs is currently a State Archery Champion (compound release) for her age division, enjoys reading, traveling, swimming, creating art, and her Bichon Frise's (small, fluffy, dogs).
