Anne Newhouse




Anne Newhouse of Susan Stripling Elementary was Gwinnett County Public Schools’ Media Specialist of the Year 2005. Ms. Newhouse was chosen for her leadership in using technology to expand access to and uses of information and her use of innovative techniques to provide media services.

Ms. Newhouse embraces technological advances to better lead the way for her students and peers. Her work at Stripling Elementary has helped ensure that the school’s technology resources support teaching and learning in many ways. Ms. Newhouse is also a firm believer in the importance of reading aloud to younger students, both to model good read-aloud techniques for newer teachers and to inspire a love of reading in students.

Director of Media and Information Services Faye Curlee says, “Anne Newhouse is a wonderful media specialist for the students at Stripling Elementary and a role model for her peers. Whether mentoring new media specialists or working with college students through internships and volunteer work, her expertise has benefited existing media specialists and those planning to enter the field. She is truly an inspiration for all Gwinnett County Media Specialists.”

Anne has since retired from her work with GCPS.
