CLARK – To make sure that newly-hired teachers were able to start their employment with the opening of the school year, the Clark Board of Education held a special meeting last night to officially appoint new staff members.
Lori Kowalski, school nurse at the Clark Preschool Annex, and Bettina Mianulli, physical education and health teacher at Kumpf School, were both appointed to their positions in the district. Kowalski had been working in the capacity of substitute teacher at the Clark Preschool Annex, with the appointment she now becomes full-time in the capacity. Mianulli is a recent graduate of Hofstra University where she obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education and a Master’s Degree in Health. Both started in their new positions today.
Superintendent of Schools Kenneth Knops said that he was grateful to the Clark Board of Education for holding the special meeting. “We are extremely fortunate that we have a Board of Education that is so committed and dedicated to the education of our students. By having this special meeting, it assures that both Lori and Bettina can begin their employment in District coinciding with the start of the school year. They are two extremely gifted educators, each will make a positive impact in their new positions.”
