Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Pedro

I graduated with a degree in  psychology and child development from Connecticut College in New London, CT. After graduation, I was fortunate to work around the globe - moving from Boston, MA to Luzern, Switzerland, Hong Kong and then back to Boston - before moving to the Atlanta area and staying home with my family for several years. I returned to work as a paraprofessional with Brookwood’s Special Education and later Kindergarten teams. 

I love a good book, cooking, and traveling with my family. We have three boys - all graduates of Brookwood - now at Lambert High School and South Forsyth Middle School. I am so excited to work with our Bobcats in the Media Center! My goal in the media center is to foster a love of reading for personal enjoyment, learning and growth, as well as to support teachers in their classroom mission.

Access Brookwood’s Catalog:

  • Students and families are encouraged to take a look at our catalog online here. You can search for books, eBooks, videos and more! To reserve books, simply login with your student’s ID and Password, search for the book you’d like and click on the yellow “hold” option. The staff will reach out to your child to ensure that he/she receives it.

Maker Space:

  • Classes are invited regularly to use our designated Maker Space. In the Maker Space, teachers and students will find a rotating collection of activities that encourage hands-on exploration, collaboration and learning. Activities may include legos, puzzles, robots, board games and more!

Forsyth County Public Library:

  • All Forsyth county residents have free access to our system of local libraries. The public libraries offer a huge range of free materials including books, eBooks, DVDs, CDs, and even museum and park passes. To find out what’s happening at our local library, click here

A Message From The Forsyth County Board of Education:

  • Talking with your kids on a regular basis about what they are reading can positively affect their performance at school and create important family bonds. We invite you and your child to look at our school media center catalog together to discuss options, or create a list of books to check out.

    Forsyth County Schools’ media centers provide resources that reflect all students within each school community. If you come across a book that does not match your family’s values and/or beliefs, and you would prefer that your child does not check that book out, please discuss it with your child.

    We are always happy to help you and your child to find just the right book. This is a partnership, and we are excited to work with you!
