Millville graduate Karey Killian is currently serving the Millville Area School District fulfilling the roles of Elementary School Librarian and Instructional Supervisor for Millville’s Digital Academy. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from Houghton College and obtained her Master’s in School Library & Information Technologies from Mansfield University in December 2011.
Her teaching experience includes student teaching in a multi-age Kindergarten / First grade classroom in rural New York as well as an inner-city experience in Buffalo teaching 4th grade. She has been a classroom teacher for Kindergarten, Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth grades.
The experience with a variety of grade levels helped prepare her for the Title 1 Math position where she worked with teachers and students to incorporate the latest standards in the curriculum. At the high school level she served as the Classroom for the Future (CFF) Coach where she worked with teachers to assist them in bringing effective ways to incorporate technology into the classroom that promote higher level thinking activities. Each of these experiences has prepared her to fulfill her new role as the Elementary Librarian.
Karey enjoys collaborating with teachers as well as leading students into a meaningful learning adventure. Her most recent accomplishment is the recognition Mansfield University has given her as an outstanding student. Every year, the Pennsylvania School Librarians Association (PSLA) is proud to announce the Outstanding Student Librarian Award to recognize outstanding student librarians in the state. These students represent the best of Pennsylvania's library schools. They are the future of school libraries and the future leaders of PSLA. The names of graduating students are submitted and then voted on by the School Library & Information Technologies faculty at Mansfield University.
Karey will be recognized at the PSLA conference at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center in April 2012 for this exemplary honor. PSLA provides a one year membership in PSLA and covers the conference fee for the honored student. Mansfield’s SL&IT faculty provides a stipend for travel expenses.
