Hello! My name is Niko Serpanos and I am super excited to join Our Lady of Guadalupe this year!
I studied education at the University of Washington Bothell, where I was elected the first ever representative of the Chancellor’s advisory committee for the school of education. During my studies I earned a scholarship position as study abroad ambassador which brought me to Varanasi, India to teach curriculum design.
When I am not in the classroom teaching, you can find me often traveling to new locations, playing video games with friends, going to the movies, and spending time with my family. I have an orange tabby who is 13 and his name is Frappé. Aside from being a huge fan of science and technology my educational philosophy is marked by a hands-on, inquiry-driven, and project-oriented approach.
My goal as a teacher is to make science a topic of exploration and critical thinking that excites our learners each day. Last year as a science teacher, I had the opportunity to be a homeroom teacher for 7/8th grade at the Academy for Precision Learning. It was one of my favorite classes, and so this year I look forward to being a 6th grade Homeroom teacher and meeting the amazing community here at OLG!
