The district welcomed with open arms its newest faculty members during a new teacher orientation on Aug. 28, which began at the administration building and ended with teachers spending time in the buildings in which they will be working. The need for these positions was the result of retirements and leave replacements.
 
Nineteen new teachers were introduced to Board of Education members, administrators and other staff while learning about important procedures, policies and how to use district technology. This group of enthusiastic new teachers is now ready to hit the ground running when students arrive for the first day of school on Sept. 5.
 
Welcome to the following new members of the LVCSD community: Kelsey Burns (BP kindergarten teacher), Alexandra Cannone (HS foreign language teacher), Michele De Maria (BI/LVI speech teacher), Brooke DeSanto (AMP kindergarten teacher), Catlin Fischer (BI/LVI psychologist), Kelly Flood (BI fifth-grade teacher), Samantha Hanna (MS math teacher), Jeannine Hengeveld (HS science teacher), Krista Lynn Hoffman (HS special education teacher), Katelyn Neesham (LVI reading teacher), Jessica Pezdan (MS music teacher), Cinzia Reeves (AMP special education teacher), Tiffani Ruffo (BI/LVI music teacher), Dani Schatz (BP second-grade teacher), Brianna Spitaliere (AMP first-grade teacher), Emily Storck (sixth-grade english/social Studies teacher), Kristen Sylvan (HS psychologist), Kristi Van Vleet (LVI ENL teacher), and Allison Hungate Wood (HS music teacher).
