Michael Webber

Mr. Webber received his BA in History and Political Science from King College and his Masters in Library Science from the University of Tennessee. He began his professional career as a reference librarian at Virginia Intermont College. From there he went to Brooklyn Public Library in New York, where he worked as a generalist librarian, children’s librarian, school outreach librarian, and branch manager. Mr. Webber’s family moved to the DC area in 1998, where he worked for DC Public Library as a children’s librarian. Since coming to DCPS in 2005 he worked at Murch Elementary and Watkins Elementary before coming with CHMS to Logan. Mr. Webber is attracted to the student-directed learning that takes place at CHM, and the fact that his role as a librarian is what he always wanted it to be- students come to the library when they need to, not when they are scheduled to.
