A lifelong passion for reading
“During my childhood in Guyana, I was always in the community library,” says Sheila Serville. “It was such a gift, having all those books to read! I was there after school, on weekends, arranging books on the shelves.” During her 37-year career as a St. Lucia educator (three decades teaching primary and secondary school, half a dozen years as a high school vice principal), Sheila kept her love affair with books and reading at the forefront. As a Hands Literacy Link, Sheila is advancing child literacy—including training Student Librarians—at over 50 St. Lucia schools.
