Welcome to the Bowdon Middle School Media Center

Media Specialist
Jill Adams, Media Specialist

My name is Jill Adams and I have been the media specialist at Bowdon Middle School since it opened in the fall of 2000.  Prior to that time, I was the media specialist at Bowdon Elementary for four years. 

I began my teaching career in 1986 and taught 2nd grade for two years in Coweta County and one year at Mt. Zion Elementary before coming home to Bowdon to teach 4th grade.  I taught for ten years before landing my dream job in the library.  After 36 years, I still love being in the media center and sharing my passion for reading with the students at Bowdon Middle School.
