JILL COCHRAN IN SUMTER COUNTY MIDDLE SCHOOL MEDIA CENTER
MRS. JILL COCHRAN IS MEDIA CENTER DIRECTOR AT SUMTER COUNTY MIDDLE SCHOOL "The term, 'Media Center,' has broadened in recent years. This room is filled with more activity than checking our library books. Like every area of education, we are becoming more technically/computer-oriented," said new-hire, Mrs. Jill Cochran. Cochran is in her second month with Sumter County Middle School. She returned home to Sumter County after three years in Schley County. She was at Sumter County Primary for six years. Cochran obtained her B.S. and M.S. Degrees in Early Childhood Education from Georgia Southwestern State University. She received her Specialist Degree in Early Childhood Education from Troy University. Most recently, Cochran obtained her Media Specialist Degree from Georgia College State University in Milledgeville, Georgia.
"I have a goal in education to help support every student. Together, we must strive to increase awareness and joint solution of increasing challenges in our changing world; through technology we will explore more information. Many of these library books are already on-line for student reading and use. We must help each other as we access this new world of information," said Cochran.
Mrs. Cochran is married to Cam Cochran and she is the mother of two girls, aged 2 and 5 years old. She is an active member of Lee Street Methodist Church.
Here, Cochran takes time away from production of an information display board in the Media Center of Sumter County Middle School.
