Deer Lakes recalls 6 furloughed teachers

Retirements are resulting in teachers being called back from furlough and reassigned in the Deer Lakes School District.

The school board Monday accepted the resignations of seven employees, including four who are retiring.

Retiring employees are Gina Catanese, middle school language arts; Carol McManus, secretary; Audrey Kotchey, special education student aide; and Leanna Shurina, custodian.

Other employees resigning are Richard Watenpool, elementary teacher; Gale Foster, home and school visitor; and James Walton, technology education teacher.

Six teachers are being recalled from furlough to help fill vacancies left by resignations and retirements, including those previously accepted by the board, Business Manager Dennis Thimons said.

The recalled teachers are Susanne Fink, assigned to sixth grade social studies; Julianne Taylor, Curtisville special education; Destinee Lovich, fourth grade; Erin Ritz, third grade; Mende Hicks, middle school health and physical education; and Maggy May Weider, middle and high school family consumer science.

The school board on Monday hired a Spanish teacher, Laura Fleischer Proano, at a salary of $45,700.

Seventeen teachers are being involuntarily reassigned at the elementary, middle and high school levels.
