As the new school year quickly approaches, teacher staffing is being solidified within the District. The following people are being recommended for Board approval at the next School Board meeting. David Dawson is being recommended by the Panguitch High School interview committee to be the science teacher at Panguitch High. Mr. Dawson has taught science for one year at Pine View Middle School. Ann Marie Norris has been recommended by the Panguitch Elementary hiring committee to be a full-time teacher at Panguitch Elementary. Principal Reynolds reports that Mrs. Norris will teach first grade next year. Regina Wood has been recommended by the Escalante High and Escalante Elementary hiring committees to teach Special Education at Escalante High, Escalante Elementary and Boulder schools. Mrs. Wood has worked in Special Education at the Gateway Preparatory Academy in Cedar City. I would like to congratulate these individuals for being selected by the hiring committees to teach in the various communities. I am looking forward to working with these individuals. Garfield County School District is a great place to work and we welcome these new employees into District.
