 Welcome aboard to all the new teachers in the school! We also welcome the many teachers who have changed the grade levels that they teach. Many teachers have moved and many teachers are new to Guggenheim School for 2000-2001.

Mrs. Lerner-Frey is one of the new teachers. She is a Resource Room teacher. She loves Guggenheim. Before she came to Guggenheim, she taught in the Resource Room in Astoria, Queens for many years. She especially enjoys teaching reading. She likes traveling, bicycle riding, hiking, and spending time with her family, friends, and her dog.

Before coming to Guggenheim, she taught first grade at Remsenberg-Speonk Elementary school in Remsenberg. She likes to visit the Guggenheim library because she loves to read.

This year many teachers have moved to a different grade. This reporter interviewed some of these teachers. When asked, “Are you happy about this move?" Mrs. Ajello said, “Yes, I am happy about moving to fourth grade.” Mrs. Ajello has never taught fourth grade before. Mrs. Smith has taught first grade for many years and now she is back there after teaching second grade last year. Mr. Sficos says it is too early to tell which grade cooperates better. Mrs. Martin, Mr. Conti and Ms. Ross also moved to a different grade level.

We welcome aboard the new and moved teachers to our Guggenheim ship!
