Meet Your Librarian
My name is Stephanie Serdechny. I graduated with a Masters in Library and Information Sciences from the University of Rhode Island in 2017. I specialized in School Library Media. Previously I worked in Connecticut, where I live, in the Killingly Public School System first as a special education assistant and then as a library assistant for their elementary schools. I was also a swim instructor and lifeguard for Bubbles to Butterfly Swim School, also located in Connecticut. These positions have given me lots of practice in the many areas of teaching.
I believe that by teaching students, I am creating future productive citizens who need critical thinking, information literacy, and real world skills. Within a nurturing and safe environment, I hope to inspire my students to learn and to enjoy their education, to feel that it is okay to take risks, and to make mistakes. I want to be able to support their learning by giving them the tools they need to become lifelong learners who succeed in school and throughout their lives.
With today's amount of technology there are so many opportunities, good and bad, to communicate, collaborate, and to gather information. With the skills students will learn in my classroom they will be high-quality citizens who can locate appropriate and accurate information, share their ideas with facts, and respect other's opinions.
