• Kyle Meidell will be teaching social studies at Bainbridge High;

• Kathleen Hess will be teaching Spanish at BHS;

• Michele Muffoletto will be teaching Spanish immersion at Ordway Elementary;

• Meloni Courtway will be teaching family and consumer science at Woodward Middle School;

• Michael Shine will be the new band teacher at Sonoji Sakai Intermediate School;

• Elaine Hanson will be teaching music at Captain Johnston Blakely Elementary;

• Leah Ramos will be teaching music at Ordway Elementary;

• Nathaniel Goldberg will be teaching English at Eagle Harbor High School and Bainbridge High School;

• Juan Jose Pedro will be teaching Spanish Immersion at Ordway (Pedro was new last year, but missed the orientation); and

• Carissa Tormanen will be teaching special education at Blakely.
