Hi! My name is Mrs. Makela. I am the Media Specialist at Eagle Lake Elementary School. Our Media Center has many materials for students and staff to use including books, encyclopedias, magazines, computers, ebooks, ipads and chromebooks.

Our Media Center staff includes myself (Mrs. Makela), Mrs. Buesing, and Mr. Johnston. We are available to help students find, understand and communicate information.

I meet with all students for one, 50 minute class each week. The media curriculum in the Mankato Area Schools emphasizes reading/literature enrichment, technology skills, and research skills. Students receive media/technology instruction from the Media Specialist. The media activities are tied to the ELA's  for each grade level.     

I spend some of my week teaching at Jefferson Elementary School l as well as Eagle Lake. If you need assistance and I am unavailable, please ask for the Media Aide, Mrs. Buesing. She is usually available if I am out of the building. Mrs. Buesing takes care of the book processing, helps with technology and also checks out books and shelves books for our Media Center.
