Hello, I'm Mrs. Fraser and I am the Librarian at Prospect Mountain High School (PMHS). I have been teaching at PMHS since its opening in September of 2004. Before coming to PMHS, I worked at Alton Central School for three years. My primary teaching responsibilities include working with the Freshmen Seminar classes, but I actually collaborate with teachers and work with all students on all grade levels. I teach research skills and how to access the best resources and I assist teachers with integrating research into their lessons. My other responsibilities are to maintain the library collection and advocate for literacy at PMHS. I am also a certified Reading and Writing Specialist and an English Teacher. I earned a Master’s in Library and Information Science (M.L.I.S.) from the University of Rhode Island, and a Master’s of Education (M.Ed.) from the University of New Hampshire. I have lived in Alton for 25 years and my husband Wayne and I raised two daughters, both graduates of PMHS. We currently share our lives with a 15-pound pug named Iggy.

Prior to joining the Prospect Mountain team, I spent over 30 years working in the corporate world. My husband and I moved to Alton in 2006 from southern New Hampshire looking for a smaller town with more of a community feel. We’ve found that in Alton. In addition to Prospect Mountain, I enjoy spending time with my five children, six granddaughters and working at my home based embroidery business.
