Meet Mr. Fernung!

Welcome to The Media Center @ Pickett's webpage. My name is Mr. Terence Fernung. This is my 25th year with Lexington City Schools. I have been fortunate to teach both fourth and fifth grades, as well as serve as Assistant Principal, and now Media Coordinator. I have been married for 28 years and have two children. My oldest daughter is married and teaches at Charles England Elementary School. My son is 18 and has 2 Black Belts in Karate. I also have a grandson who will be a year old at the end of September. I am originally from Kokomo, Indiana. My dad retired from the United States Navy, which gave me the opportunity to travel and live in different countries.

  • The Media Center @ Pickett Mission Statement


     The Media Center @ Pickett will function as the hub of the school in order to lead students in becoming lifelong readers and learners who appreciate and celebrate literature, themselves, and others. 

    The Media Center @ Pickett will support the curriculum by collaborating with teachers, developing a collection that meets the needs of all learners and is representative of the school community by implementing core instruction for students that integrates technology, research, information literacy, and digital citizenship. 

    The Media Center @ Pickett is committed to challenging students to become critical thinkers, communicators, collaborators, and creators as they work to be productive citizens in a global society who are equipped with the 21st century skills necessary to succeed. 

    It is our passion to prepare students to be future ready: to not only become independent and ethical seekers and users of ideas of information, but creators of the ideas and information.
