Photo of Rob CoxRob Cox is in his second year as a school media specialist in Fortville, Indiana. He works at both Mount Vernon Elementary (K-4) and Mount Vernon Intermediate Schools (5-6). He rotates between the two buildings, spending a full day at one and then the next day at the other.

Rob received his MLS from IUPUI in August of 2003. He previously worked as a library assistant in two different elementary schools in Noblesville, for a total of about 4 years. He worked for Kristi Boyd and Carroll Hopp at White River Elementary and Hazel Dell Elementary, respectively. Prior to becoming a library assistant, he worked for nearly 12 years as a mechanical engineer.

Rob completed his student teaching at Carmel High School with Bonnie Grimble and at Cherry Tree Elementary with Nancy Hettlinger. As a SLMS who recently entered the field, Rob can share what it is like to start working as a media specialist, the challenges of working at two buildings, and update you with his perspectives on how his second year is going . . .
