December Superintendent Report Litchfield Public Schools December 17, 2018 Personnel-Science Teacher We have offered and received acceptance from Amanda Slocum to be the 7-12 Science teacher for the second semester of the 2018-2019 school year. Amanda has two years of experience teaching Science in Wakefield, Nebraska. She has been one of our sub- stitute teachers the past six years. Moreover, she has been teaching this position since the beginning of No- vember when it was suddenly left vacant. We have seen many positive results since Mrs. Slocum has taken over the program. One of Mrs. Slocum’s past supervisors commented, “In my visiting of Mrs. Slocum’s classroom, another strength I have noticed is that she always remained positive and upbeat in her lessons. She had very well- prepared lesson plans, and was excited to see the kids and begin her lessons each day.” We have noticed this strength as well in observing Mrs. Slocum these past weeks. Motion: I recommend Amanda Slocum to be hired as the new 7-12 Science teacher for the second se- mester of the 2018-2019 school year.
