Library Media Specialist

  • Email Joseph Diefenthaler

My name is Joe Diefenthaler (AKA Mr D) and I am the Library Media Specialist at the Pulaski Community Middle School (extention 822-6574) and Pulaski High School (extention 822-6723). I began teaching in Pulaski as a Special Education teach but slid over to the LMS role in 2010. My belief is that there is a book for every student and if we don't have it in our Hubs (libraries), we will find one.
