Wendy Post

I am very excited to be at Monte Sano ES. It is my goal to make the library the hub of the school and to create in each precious student, a desire to be a lifelong reader and learner.

I was born in West Virginia and have lived in twelve states. I was nominated by my US Representative in Canton, OH to the fifth class to include women at the United States Air Force Academy, graduating in 1985. Go Falcons! I spent the next five years as a B-52 and KC-135 aircraft maintenance officer, attaining the rank of Captain. I resigned to stay at home with my children. In 1997, with both of my children in school, I went back to college to earn my Master of Library Science degree at the University of Maryland College Park. Fear the Turtle! I then spent seven years as the librarian at Waples Mill ES in Oakton, VA, a school of almost 800 children. I resigned my job when I became pregnant to stay at home and raise my daughter. My family moved to Alabama in 2008 as part of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC). My husband is a 21 year veteran of the Air Force and currently works for the Missile Defense Agency. I have a son, Eric, 24, a graduate of the University of Tampa. I also have a 10 year old daughter who attends school in Madison where we live.

I love to travel. I have been to 45 states and 10 different countries. I am very involved at Asbury UMC where I am a Bible Study facilitator. I am also passionate about hockey and follow the Washington Capitals. In most of my free time, you will find me with a book in my hands.
