Welcome Ms. Stella
Hello! I am very excited to work with everyone at Serene Hills Elementary! I am forever learning, and look forward to doing so with the Serene Hills Sailors!I grew up in Houston, and first came to Austin to attend the University of Texas where I received a BA in Spanish. After college, I moved to New Jersey, married Chris, and had my two amazing children, Kelsie and Jacob. While in NJ, I also attended Rutgers University and received my masters degree in Library and Information Sciences.I began my work as a librarian in the the public library, and this is my 18th year working in a school library. I am from a family of educators, and I am thrilled to carry on this family tradition!
Remember to visit our local libraries for after school and weekend hours.
Fall Reading Program
Our library reading program this year is formatted as a choice
board. Each student should have received a board to take home. You
can also access the choice board through the school library
Schoology site. Parent signatures are required, so please work
with your child to set realistic, attainable, and challenging goals
Our program runs hrough Friday, December 10th.
Students who achieve their reading goal will be recognized on
a library bulletin board and will select a way to celebrate their
success. They will then be encouraged to set a new goal. Our
goal is to encourage reading.
Thank you for supporting your child’s reading this year!
