Year Appointed: 2013
Scott Serafine is not really new to Taft, although new to the school year faculty, and comes to us after a long and distinguished career in public schools. After graduation from Southern Connecticut, he began his career in physical education but quickly moved to technology education, and took additional graduate course work in communications and technology. At Wilby High School in Waterbury for nearly twenty years, Scott taught Drafting, Woodworking, Graphic Arts, and Video Production, which led to his appointment to the faculty of the Waterbury Arts Magnet School, where he has taught Technology, Communications and Video Production for the last nine years. Both he and his students have been recognized with awards for community service for their production of videos to support the work of local non-profit organizations, and Scott was recognized as Teacher of Year in 2006 in the Waterbury Public Schools and the same year was a semi-finalist for Connecticut State Teacher of the Year. Scott also served for ten years as the Assistant Director of the summer Taft Educational Center and then taught a week-long video production class in that program for five years. Scott will teach video production at Taft and work on video production for the school. He and his wife Lillian, our Assistant Librarian, live in the Hamilton Duplex across the street from the school.
