Stacey Donahue - NYS Certified School Library Media Specialist 

With experience providing library-literacies instruction in elementary, middle and high school settings, my focus is to offer a friendly, welcoming library which serves as a hub of learning for students and a system of instructional support for classroom teachers.

My vision for the library media center is to provide a lively environment where productivity and creativity are encouraged and a variety of information tools and resources are offered.   My mission is to develop lifetime readers and assist students in building the skills necessary to become skillful and ethical researchers, evaluators, and communicators of information.

Why Odyssey of the Mind is Good for Kids

The Odyssey of the Mind teaches students to learn creative problem-solving methods while having fun in the process. For more than twenty five years, this unique program has helped teachers generate excitement in their students. By tapping into creativity, and through encouraging imaginative paths to problem-solving, students learn skills that will provide them with the ability to solve problems -- great and small -- for a lifetime. The Odyssey of the Mind teaches students how to think divergently by providing open-ended problems that appeal to a wide range of interests. Students learn how to identify challenges and to think creatively to solve those problems. They are free to express their ideas and suggestions without fear of criticism. The creative problem-solving process rewards thinking "outside of the box." While conventional thinking has an important place in a well-rounded education, students need to learn how to think creatively and productively.
