During the April 19 Board of Education meeting, teachers Amanda Kowalski and Christopher Merz were granted tenure, effective September 1.
    
Since 2007, Ms. Kowalsi has taught in each of the district’s schools, first as a leave replacement teacher at Shore Road and then as a third-grade teacher at Winthrop Avenue. She currently teaches first grade at Reinhard.   
    
A sixth-grade mathematics teacher at Shore Road, Mr. Merz joined the staff in 2009 as a teaching assistant before becoming a leave replacement teacher in a first-grade classroom. He also taught second- and fifth-grade students prior to his current assignment.
    
The District congratulates both teachers on this outstanding professional accomplishment.
