Hello My Name Is...

Ms. McDaniel


Hi! I am the librarian at Woodrow Wilson Middle School.  I attended JMU and graduated with a Bachelors degree in English.  I taught middle school English for 12 years in Lynchburg City and Hanover County Public Schools.  During that time, I completed my Masters in Library Science online with the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.  A few years ago I became a librarian at Fluvanna Middle School, and now I'm here in Roanoke!  

I look forward to sharing books and reading with you all!

Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Bandy

Hi! I am the library assistant at WWMS.  This is my sixth year here at Woodrow Wilson. I'm working on my School Librarianship Endorsement through Longwood University, where I also earned by BS in Elementary Education. I have two grown children and four chickens!

Our ITRT, Ms. Hill, and I are excited to announce the continuation of the Woodrow Wilson Middle School MAKERSPACE in the library!  A Makerspace is a space in the library for students to work on projects that will help them create, learn, and explore.  Some projects will involve technology and some will be more low-tech!  Teachers will have the opportunity to bring in their classes for whole-class projects, and students will be able to come in on their own during homeroo
m and some afterschool times.  If you are interested in helping out with the Makerspace by donating supplies a list can be found on our "useful links" page.  If you're interested in donating your time and expertise, please contact Ms. McDaniel ( or Ms. Hill (! 
We can't wait to share all the fun stuff our students get to create in our MAKERSPACE!
