CLYMER, N.Y. — There are some new faces at Clymer Central School, but a few have been down these hallways before.
On Monday, the board of education greeted five faculty and staff members who have filled temporary and permanent positions as the district heads into the 2009-10 school year.
Three of the five hires are graduates of Clymer. They are Ashley Guzowski, who has been appointed to a long-term special education substitute position; Kristen Rater, who was hired as a media center assistant; and Samantha Smith, who was appointed to a secondary English position.
The other two faculty members are Morgan Dudley, who was hired as a long-term kindergarten substitute teacher; and Kimberly Kelleher, who was approved as a family and consumer science teacher.
Board members also welcomed the school’s Thailand exchange student Kantachet Boon Serm, who is also known as “Prince.”
Prince’s host parents are Toni and Calvin TenHuisen of Clymer.
In other personnel business, board members accepted the resignation of Greg White as an assistant football coach.
After the motion was approved, Scott Neckers was appointed to fill that position.
A contract with physical therapist Sara Dellamore was approved for the next two years at $55 per hour for 2009-10 and $60 per hour for 2010-11.
