Sean Casey

My name is Sean Casey, and I am the library media specialist at Northeast Middle School.

I have been a proud employee of Minneapolis Public Schools since 2011, serving as the library media specialist at Field Community School, Ramsey Middle School (now Justice Page Middle School), Jefferson Community School, and Marcy Open School. In that time and at those schools I have had the honor of receiving Field’s Mike Andrews Award for my “positive attitude, willingness to take action, and the dedication [I] put forth in making Field and the surrounding community a better place for everyone”; of becoming an Apple Teacher (a recognition from Apple for “lifelong learners who create innovative learning experiences on iPad and Mac”); of becoming a Common Sense Educator (a recognition from Common Sense Media for “helping students think critically and use technology responsibly to learn, create, and participate”); of becoming a Google Certified Educator Level 1 (a certification from Google for educators who know "how to use Google tools in the classroom”); and of being one of 105 MPS educators recognized at the Celebration of Teachers for my “impact on students and student achievement” and “continued dedication to student excellence and success in raising academic achievement in our schools.”

I now have the honor of serving as the library media specialist here at NEMS, where I use my Master of Science degree in Library and Information Science from St. Catherine University and my Library Media Specialist teaching license to assist all students in becoming active and responsible locators, users, creators, and evaluators of information, media, and technology; to support MPS’ mission to support students’ growth into “knowledgeable, skilled, and confident citizens capable of succeeding in their work, personal, family, and community lives into the 21st century”; and to support the International Baccalaureate’s mission “to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.”
