Pat Slattery



I have been the Library Media Teacher at Encinal since the 2005-06 school year. In addition, I have worked as an educator in a variety of roles: 3rd through 5th grade bilingual classroom teacher, ELD Portuguese/English, Spanish/English resource teacher, bilingual special education testing specialist, and high school English and Spanish teacher.

Teaching/Educational Philosophy

I often attend talks sponsored by the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Information. At a recent session, Dan Russell from Google presented many amazing new research tools. After complimenting Google on their exciting new resources, I asked Dan’s opinion as to how students would learn to discern the real information from the fake, the worthy from the waste of time. He said, "That's the librarians' job.”

Although it is difficult to stay up-to-date on the ever-changing information scene, it is increasingly important for our students and staff. I welcome the opportunity to assist students in building stamina and tenacity as they face the challenges presented by the tsunami of information they encounter in our 21st century society.

Personal Note

I have lived and worked in different states and countries which has broadened my world view and enriched my life experiences and my teaching. I continue to enjoy traveling whenever possible. In addition, I love to spend time with friends and family discussing books, movies, and theater… and laughing as much as possible.
