BETHEL – New teachers will greet students Tuesday, Sept. 2, when SAD 44 schools begin another school year.

Students at Crescent Park Elementary School and Telstar Middle School in Bethel will be seeing the new faces.

At Crescent Park, Karla Seneca will begin working with students as the school’s new special education teacher to assist special needs students.

At the middle school, Kimberly Kangas and Michael Bailey will join the physical education and health staff, Ruth Cote will be part of the sixth-grade staff and Brenda Clark will work as the alternative education teacher.

Also new to the teaching staff will be elementary art teacher Teresa Ingraham, who will travel about the five-town district, which includes Andover, Bethel, Greenwood, Newry and Woodstock, to meet the needs and state guidelines.

Two veteran teachers will assume new roles as lead teachers at Crescent Park and the Andover Elementary schools. Levi Brown at Crescent Park and Roger Sabin at Andover will be filling the positions which, according to supervising Principal Richard Colpitts, are needed to cover emergency issues when he is handling his duties around the district.

New members to the support staff for the district will also be introduced: central office secretary Becky Kuvaja, Telstar ed tech and computer services specialist Ray Geiger, Telstar custodian Terri Angevine, Crescent Park ed tech and special services specialist Eloise Lewis and curriculum director Lee Graham.
