Pierce's Produce
designed by Michelle Pierce

My name is Michelle Pierce. I work at Burney Harris Lyons Middle School (BHL) which is located in Athens, Georgia.  BHL, part of the Clarke County School District, is named after three prominent, local African American educators. The school moved to its current suburban location from downtown 15 years ago.  I live less than a half mile from campus and am also fortunate enough to have my youngest child, a rising 7th grader, at the same school.

Originally a "Jersey girl" I have lived in Athens for seven years.  Before arriving I made many stops: Pennsylvania, Delaware, Ohio, West Virginia, and North Carolina.  West Orange, the town I grew up in, is home of the Thomas Edison National Historic Site.  Much of my time was spent at the local ice skating rink (speed skating) which is the practice site for the New Jersey Devils professional hockey team.  Free time now is a luxury.  When I can I bake, walk, and read.

Working in the Media Center the past two years has given me the opportunity to to work with 6th, 7th and 8th graders in a variety of capacities.  I mostly assist the students with reports and projects, do some tutoring, and of course make book recommendations.  One website that I like personally as well as for students is freerice.  It works well individually and with a group if a SmartBoard is used.  I am looking forward to moving from the Media Center into the classroom.
