Westport Schools Superintendent Elliott Landon today marked the official opening of the 2014-2105 school year by welcoming an overflow crowd at the annual teacher orientation in the Bedford Middle School auditorium and introducing the 2015 Teacher of the Year.
Lisa Almeida, a Spanish teacher at Coleytown Middle School, was selected as the Teacher of the Year.
Other nominees were announced as Megan Stone and Eric Lawrence, Saugatuck; Jennifer Benson, Kings Highway; Michelle DeCarlo, Greens Farms; Kerry Jean Douglas, Bedford; Anne Fernandez, Joel Kabak and Enia Noonan, Staples, and Rick Quiricone and Christina Zadravec, Coleytown Middle.
Landon’s welcome message included introductions to 44 new teachers—“the most new hires that we have had since 2008”—two new administrators as well as recognition of 25-year school veterans Enia Noonan at Staples, Ellen Zunick at King’s Highway, and Janice Price at Staples.
