Meet Mrs. Kelly Keruskin, Student Teacher, Library Science K-12

My name is Kelly Keruskin and I am currently working on my Master of Library Science degree through Clarion University. For the first eight weeks of this school year, I will be working in the high school library media center under the guidance of Mrs. Mason. After that I will be working with Mrs. Thompson at Borland Manor, Wylandville, and Hills-Hendersonville.

I live near Fredericktown, Pennsylvania with my husband Pete and our two daughters, Jesse, age 18, and Sarah, age 13. I received my undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Duquesne University in 1990, and for several years I worked in the accounting department of a local utility. As the years progressed, my love of books, reading, and children continually pulled me toward a career in school librarianship. I also enjoy reading (my favorite genres are historical non-fiction and young adult fiction), collecting antiques, and going on camping trips with my family. I look forward to meeting you and working with your students. Consider me an additional resource!

Book Recommendations

Mrs. K's Book Faves

The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin - a great read for fans of the popular PBS series, Downton Abbey. The story centers on Cora Cash, a beautiful and spirited American heiress whose mother’s sole ambition in life is to obtain a titled husband for her daughter.

The Johnstown Flood by David McCullough - a moving and detailed narrative of the catastrophic dam failure that engulfed Johnstown, Pennsylvania on May 31, 1889. An excellent read penned by the Pulitzer Prize winning historian and native Pittsburgher, David McCullough.

Killing Lincoln by Bill O’Reilly & Martin Dugard – a historic thriller that provides a detailed account of the final weeks of the Civil War and the assassination of our 16th President. Written as a narrative, Killing Lincoln is easy to read and is filled with fascinating and little known facts. The audio edition is also excellent.
