Sacred Heart University alumnus Sean Serafino, who teaches third grade at Monroe Elementary School, has received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) for Connecticut at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. “I was honored to receive the Presidential Award for Mathematics and Science Teaching,” said Serafino, who also is an adjunct education professor at SHU. “This is the most prestigious award an elementary science teacher can earn. I was happy for myself, but also grateful for the amazing students and colleagues that I have had the fortune of working with in Monroe since I student-taught there in 2004.”
Sacred Heart University has received a $2,500 grant from the Davis Educational Foundation to establish a faculty fellowship in open educational resources (OER) for the 2018-19 academic year. Open educational resources constitute free digital assets such as online research repositories, curriculum-sharing websites and freely accessible, online alternatives to textbooks.
For the fourth consecutive year, Colleges of Distinction has reaffirmed that Sacred Heart University is doing all the right things. The higher-education organization once again recognized Sacred Heart for its academic excellence. With more program offerings, an expanding campus, faculty and staff dedicated to the needs and demands of the growing student population and students dedicating nearly 100,000 of community service, the designation is hard-earned.
