It appears that special time of year is approaching once more: the start of school.
It’s not just some students that will be embracing the environment inside a brand new school, 10 teachers new to the district will also be shaking off the new school jitters this year. They are:
• 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.
