Welcome to the Library!
My name is Emily Slagle and I am the District Library Media Specialist. I have the opportunity to split my time every day between GMS in the morning and GHS in the afternoon. This is my 16th year working in Goshen but only my forth year in library media. Prior to working in the library, I taught 7th and 8th grade social studies at GMS. I am a proud Goshen Alumni, class of 1998, and my husband, Mark Slagle, also works for the district as the Director of Technology. We have three small children we plan to see one day graduate from Goshen!
