Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Rachael Hissong
Hello! My name is Rachael Hissong, and I am the Library Media Specialist at Schwegler Elementary. I received both my Master of Library Science degree with a concentration in leadership and administration and my Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies degree with cognate areas of study in Elementary Education and Information Management from Emporia State University. I also hold an Applied Public Library Certification from the State Library of Kansas. I have worked as the director of a public library for 5 years, and in a variety of other roles in pubic libraries, including managing children's programming. I am passionate about the positive impact that libraries have on communities, and I am excited to gain experience in a school library. I look forward to nurturing a love for reading and teaching information and digital literacy skills.
