Ms. Hope Meltser

Hi all! I'm Ms. Meltser, or Hope, and I am thrilled to be going into my fourth year as the librarian at Waxpool! I grew up in the Philadelphia area and then attended Syracuse University (Go Orange!) where I earned my undergraduate degrees in Graphic Design and Education Media and Technology, before staying for my Masters in Library and Information Science: School Media. I moved down to Ashburn to be Waxpool's librarian - my dream job since I was 8 years old!

I am passionate about children's literature, but my number one goal will always be to help students become lifelong learners. When I'm not in the library, I love reading (not surprising), graphic design, traveling, and food!

Mr. Philip DeStefano

Welcome to Waxpool Elementary School's library. I'm Mr. DeStefano and I work with our librarian, Ms. Meltser. 

My college degree is in Environmental Science. I have worked in fisheries, environmental education, computer programming, school computer labs, libraries, and as a guitarist/singer. Put that all together and you can see why I feel at home in a library, surrounded by so many different subjects. I enjoy seeing students discover their interests, learn, and follow their dreams.

Guitar playing has been my biggest interest since I was 19 years old. I continue to study, learn, play, and share music.
