Mrs. Flowers – Media Specialist
I am excited to join the terrific staff at Palencia Elementary School as the Pirate Cove Media Specialist. I look forward to sharing all the exciting activities we can do in the media center with our students, staff, and parents! I completed my master’s degree in school librarianship at Old Dominion University in Virginia. Happy Reading!
Mrs. Degutis – Media Assistant
I am very blessed to be able to say I have one of the best jobs in St. Johns County! I have worked at the Palencia Media Center since opening year. Before I came here I was a teacher in grades 2, 3, and 4. I love reading and am passionate about getting students excited about reading as well. I live in St. Augustine with my husband, Michael, and our dog Bella. (Be sure to check out her pictures when you stop by the media center!) When I am not working or reading, I enjoy playing golf, walking our dog, or just being outdoors.
I am coming to PES from Hickory Elementary where I have been the Media Assistant for 15 years. I am so excited to be a Pirate and look forward to meeting each of you!
