Kids Say The Darndest Things & Inspired a Librarian to Write a Book!

Rhonda Eberst is Summit Road Elementary School's Librarian and now she can add published author to her resume! She has been a librarian for 17 years but has been in the Reynoldsburg City Schools district for 20 years. Ms. Eberst started out as a parent volunteer and substitute which later led her to become the school's librarian.  

Recently Ms. Eberst wrote a book about her experiences as being an elementary school librarian. The book, "I Survived Pompeii: Hilarious Adventures in an Elementary School Library," was inspired by her love for her job and the funny things she heard kids say throughout the day. She kept these stories in a file which eventually sturned into Facebook posts. After a while she contacted a publisher to make these funny moments into a book. 
Fellow SUES Teacher Ms. Groezinger says, "I Survived Pompeii is a must have for educators and anyone who loves children. Rhonda Eberst has written insightful and hilarious stories wrapped in words of wisdom and compassion. You will laugh until your sides ache and shed a few tears, too, while learning how to share your heart with children."

The book I Survived Pompeii: Hilarious Adventures in an Elementary School Library is out and able to be purchased online and at local book stores. Ms. Eberst also read her book to students and did a book signing. Join us in congratulating her on her success!
