Ms. Lori Palmé

Hello! My name is Ms. Lori Palmé, and I am thrilled to be your Library Media Specialist this year! 

I teach because I LOVE it!  This will be my 21st year teaching, and my 6th year in the library.  I am certified to teach K-8 and also completed my Masters Degree in Educational Technology with a certification as a Library Media Specialist. 

What an honor and privilege it is to work at Switlik Elementary School!  I was born and raised in Jackson, and Switlik was my very first school where I attended kindergarten!  I live in Howell with my two wonderful children: Jack and Meaghan. When I have some spare time I enjoy going to the Manasquan Reservoir, playing golf, reading, cooking, spending time with my family and friends, and hanging out on the beach. My favorite sports teams are the NY Yankees and the NY Giants.  My favorite vacation spot is any place with a beach!

I am looking forward to helping the students of Switlik become critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, and ethical users of information.  My all time favorite children’s book is The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.  I can’t wait to get (or keep) each of you hooked on reading and learn all about your favorite books!
