Meet Your Library Staff

Ms. Alison Fox, Ed.S.
Library Media Specialist
In 2006, I began my teaching career in high school! I taught English I, II, III, IV, and AP English Language along with journalism and SDC psychology. Later, I added library science and embraced the library world. I enjoyed books so much that I wanted to share that love with others--especially students. 
When not at work, I enjoy much-needed quality time with my daughter, my mom, and our beloved pets! My daughter and I are both avid readers and enjoy bookstores, coffee shops, museums, and travel! 
Mrs. Edie Debord
I have been working in the GMS library since 2021 (Ms. Fox is fabulous to work with!), and one of my favorite tasks as Mrs. Fox’s Assistant is to help students find a book they will love to read! I like the idea of encouraging students to read because it will help them to learn, concentrate and increase their vocabulary. I have previous library experience. I worked in the children’s library in a public library in Kentucky. While working there, I learned a great deal about children’s literature. I have a real appreciation well-written stories! I received a Bachelor’s degree in print Journalism from UGA and worked in the field of Tourism Sales & Marketing in Georgia for many years. I have been married to my husband, Tim for 27 years. We have 2 grown children. Our son is an Army Ranger stationed in Olympia, Washington. Our daughter is an ETSU graduate and attends Medical School in Blacksburg, VA. I’m still waiting patiently for grandchildren!
