Rae Shagalov has a Master's degree in Library Science and B.A. in English. She was also an art major in college and went to high school at the Unschool of New Haven, which was a very fun school that was completely run by the students. That's what gave Mrs. Shagalov the idea to make the library a fun place where students are in charge of what they like to learn, and where they can discover and develop their talents. Mrs. Shagalov is famous for her beautiful handwriting which can be viewed at
