Mrs. Savannah Wood

Hey there! I am Savannah Wood, the Library Media Specialist here at East Elementary School. This is my fifth year here at East, my tenth year as a media specialist and my thirteenth year as a teacher. I am married to BJ Wood (almost 14 years now). We have four children, Sadie (12), Fisher (9), Millie (6) and Briggs (18mo)!
I recently received my National Board Certification. I am an avid reader who is obsessed with coffee. I love to spend as much time as I can traveling with my family! Some other favorites include: worshipping on my church's praise team, spending summers on the lake with family and friends, celebrating Christmas, social media, and crafting with my little ones.
