Hello! I am Mrs. Valgenti, the Library Media Specialist at the Christa McAuliffe School. I have been a Library Media Specialist for 13 years. I am also an advisor for the Robotics Club, last year students built the robot in the IMC. We are planning to compete again this year with 3 teams!
In addition to the physical IMC, we have online resources. Students can check out ebooks from our school catalog. We have databases to use for research, such as Ebscohost.
I look forward to seeing you in the IMC!
