Meet Dr. Buckner

Greetings from the ... Red Scribble Heart ...of NBMS - the library!


I’m incredibly happy to be working with Mrs. Cloninger again this year and we’re both excited to welcome Mrs. Tate to our team. I love many things about my job: working with teachers to promote technology in the classroom, hosting the bookfair, sponsoring the BOB team and helping students with their projects but my personal fave is...


I get paid to read! Reading Girl.png

One of my favorite perks is getting to read all the new books and magazines before anyone else does!!! (Unless Mrs. Cloninger beats me to it...) 


During my career I have served as a classroom teacher, a librarian, a school level administrator, a district level administrator, a grant writer, an education consultant and college adviser.  I hold a BA in Elementary Education from Mars Hill College,  a Master of Library Information Science degree from UNC-Greensboro, and a Doctorate of Education with Superintendent’s licensure from Western Carolina University. I've had the pleasure of working with many amazing teachers and students and I am very happy to currently serve as one of the librarians here @ NBMS. Go Blackhawks!
