With their four-year probationary period now behind them, 12 teachers were celebrated for being tenured at the September 12th Board of Education meeting.
“These talented individuals spent the bulk of their probationary period teaching during the ups and downs of COVID. Their resilience, perseverance, and dedication is truly astounding,” Karen Marchioli, Ed.D, Director of Elementary Education, told board members.
Marchioli presented alongside Andrew Krazmien, Director of Secondary Education, and John Armstrong, Director of Special Education. Tenure certificates were handed out by Michael Sage, President of the Board of Education, and Michael Vallely, Ph.D., Superintendent of Schools.
“This is a tremendous honor and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of the tenured recipients on their accomplishment this evening”, said Krazmien.
