Mother Librarian

From the moment the young and eager 6th graders take their seats, Ms Clemency, Treptow librarian, is rattling off their names. She does this as if she has known them from birth even though it is only the second week of school. This is an impressive feat that comes naturally to the best and most experienced of teachers. Many students lovingly refer to Ms Clemency as “mom” and she has become exactly that to all the students who have the pleasure of using her library. She has become “in loco parentis” to the Senior class by allowing those upperclassmen to use her library as a spot to wake up in and greet that upcoming day at Wakefield. Ms Clemency is a lifeline for all the students especially those who have embarked on the daunting task of Junior and Senior thesis. If you have not already gotten to know Ms Clemency I suggest that you do so because she is one friend that you can’t afford to miss out on. –Creston Irby
