Join Teaching the Hudson Valley and Southeastern NY Library Resources Council as we engage, dialogue, and learn with the Arab American National Museum (AANM). AANM will introduce to you who the Arab American community is and share online educational and cultural resources available for classrooms, libraries, community centers, and the general public!

David Serio is an Education and Public Programming Specialist at the Arab American National Museum (AANM).  He holds a M.A. in Near Eastern Studies and Arabic from Wayne State University.  Mr. Serio joined the AANM in January of 2011.  As an Educator and Public Programmer, Mr. Serio conducts educational presentations and workshops both in person and online.  Mr. Serio also helps in the planning and implementation of youth programs and cultural events, such as the SURA Arts Academy, a youth photography program.  Like many of us, he wears multiple hats, including Volunteer Coordinator and Curator of the Arab Film Festival and is in charge of all subsequent film programming at the AANM. He also proudly serves on the board of the Anton Art Center, Macomb County Pride, Friends of the Detroit Film Theatre and DAFT.  On a more personal note, Dave identifies as a third-generation Arab American, whose family comes from Lebanon.  He dabbles a little in the film industry, is a proud cat dad of 2 and is always up for a good political debate.
