Teacher. Librarian. Advocate.


Hi, I am Jewel Davis (pronouns she/her/hers), and I am a proud librarian, teacher, learner, wife, dog mama, avid reader, bird watcher, photographer, painter, and much more! 

I grew up in a small Eastern NC town and gained a love of  teaching from my educator parents. I attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as a NC Teaching Fellow and graduated with a bachelor's degree in English. I continued on at UNC and received a master's degree in teaching. I taught high school English on the coast of NC and then decided to go back to school for a masters degree in library science at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I am a proud  ACE Scholar scholarship recipient for UNC-G, and my diverse LIS cohort gave me the passion and drive to never stop dreaming or advocating for more representation in this field. 

I am currently an Education Librarian at Appalachian State University living in a tiny adjacent town (less than 1,500 people). I love working in the High Country, and my job allows me to combine my passions for teaching, diversity, and technology. 

I can be found in a few other places online. Check me out (library pun intended)! 

Student Blog: I blogged here for a year as a student and highlighted some of my LIS work. 

Family and Community Stories: A student project consisting of a small collection of my family's oral narratives and mementos. 

Goodreads: Beware!  Dig deep and you'll find quite a lot of dystopian, zombie, and apocalyptic fiction.
