Deer Park Welcomes New Educators


In an effort to acclimate new teachers to the Deer Park School District newly hired staff attended a three-day orientation program. District Administrators and Curriculum Associates mentored the new members of the academic team through a variety of workshops and seminars. The program began with a welcome message from Superintendent of Schools Eva Demyen, who described the academic standards and community culture of the district and set forth the expectations and plans for the upcoming school year.

New teachers were instructed on how to design and execute an effective lesson plan and how to manage their classroom through the Infinite Campus Student Information System by Administrator for Instructional Technology Dr. Jared Bloom. Assistant Superintendent for Pupil Personnel Services Frank Caliguiri spoke about the importance of academic and social support and the services the district offers its students to ensure their success. 

To culminate the training sessions, teachers met at their respective buildings and spoke with their building and curriculum administrators to become familiar with their schools, classrooms and facilities.
