Mr. Jim Davis
I am the Library Aide at Nahed Chapman New American Academy. I love the outdoors and spend many hours hiking, camping or just walking trails I find. I am also an avid reader of books, I will read just about anything. The students and I are always talking about the best superhero and the most fun comic books.
I was an Intelligence Officer for several years, serving in Iraq, Qatar and Kuwait before transtioning of to the field of education. I have worked at St. Louis University and SIUE in Illinois before coming to NCNAA. I truly enjoy watching the students become excited in the library when they find a book they really like. The constant debates on the best princess or the greatest superhero are magical times. It is my pleasure and joy to be a part of the students learning.
Some of my favorite outdoor spots include Creve Coeur Lake, Hazlett State Park and Pere Marquette State Park. Authors I enjoy include JRR Tolkien, Charles Dickens, Shel Silverstein, Mary Shelly and Brandon Sanderson. In my free time, I travel the midwest with my youngest daughter, who is an elite volleyball player.
