• Media Center Staff:

    Mrs. Daffin (Media Specialist)

         I have had the pleasure of working as a Media Specialist in High School and Elementary level for 31 years, including 11 years at Newington Elementary.   I also worked at a Public Library for 5 years and spent 3 years working in a Media Center on College level, including a Nursing school.  I have completed my Master’s Degree plus 30 hours and also was National Board Certified in 2017.   I have been married for 37 years and had one daughter.  I have one beautiful granddaughter.   Our goal is to encourage a lifelong love of reading with all our students.  Our Media Center philosophy is “Love, Laugh and Read!”

    Mrs. Gunter (Media Assistant)

         I have been an Assistant at Newington Elementary School for 19 years.  The first 16 years, I was an assistant in kindergarten, working with all skills in Math and Phonics.  Currently, for 4 years, I have been an assistant in the Media Center.  Some of the other responsibilities are Yearbook Adviser, and Safety Patrol Organizer. I have been married for 39 years and the mother of two young men. I have 5 grandchildren and all have been through Newington. Elementary School.  Reading is such pleasure and I feel fortunate to have grandchildren that value and excel in reading.

    Please contact Mrs. Daffin if you would be willing to assist us throughout the day or at our Media Center Events.
