    Hi!  My name is Lindsay Lander and I am your media specialist at the main campus at Brandon Elementary.  This is my 10h year at Brandon.  I went to Berry College and graduated with a B.A. in Communications.  After working in the marketing and public relations fields for about 7 years, I decided to go back to school to get my Master's in Library Media Technology. Last year, I also completed my Ed.S in Library Media and Instructional Tecnology.  I love being a media specialist and sharing my love of reading and technology with students.  Aside from my interest in libraries, technology and teaching, I also love to jog, hang out with my friends and family and travel to NYC and Chicago when I can.  My husband and I have one son, James and a sweet mutt, Oliver.  I'm really looking forward to a great year at Brandon!
