Meet your Friendly Media Specialist




My name is April Cook!


I am very excited to be the media specialist at Hogansville Elementary School. This is my 26th year in public education.  I attended Valdosta State University where I received my Bachelor's Degree. I attended the University of West Georgia for Master's Degree in Media, and then returned to Valdosta State University where I received my Ed.S degree in Instructional Technology.  


My job in the Media Center suits me well.  I get to see, assist, and visit with all staff and students all day long! Working with staff and students is rewarding; some of my favorite parts of the job are helping patrons find information that they can use and helping readers find books that they will enjoy reading. I love books! I love reading! I want to pass along the love of books to everyone I meet!


I am married to Craig Sandford, and I am the proud mother of two daughters, Kaylynn and McClain.  I love spending time with my family, antiques, the beach, reading, and camping.
