It’s that time of the year again for retiring teachers and staff to be honored and for others to be awarded tenure. The Tuesday, June 8, Hampton Bays School Board of Education meeting at the Hampton Bays Middle School Library was the site of this year’s recognition.
Candidates approved for tenure that night were teachers Erin Lynch, Lyndsey Simmons-Moran, Kathryn Algieri, Erica Marcucci, Jennifer Mulvey, James Waring, Thomas Little and Danielle Russo; and teacher assistants Lisa Marte, Anne Waring, Mary Strecker and Eleni Fotopoulos.
Retiring teachers and staff that were recognized included: Susan Moran, Diana Dargan, Robin Lovett, Richard Joslin, Felecia Kutscher, Barbara Schulte, John Wernersbach, Maryalice Griffin and Rosarie Rea.
Ms. Dargan, a retiring elementary school teacher, had the best line of the night when she referred to incoming Superintendent Lars Clemensen:
“You know it’s time to retire when your former kindergarten student is now your superintendent,” she laughed.
