East Meadow Welcomes New Class of Teachers


The District welcomed 32 new teachers, staff and faculty to the school year during its annual new teacher orientation at the Leon J. Campo Salisbury Center on Aug. 31.

Superintendent of Schools Leon J. Campo, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Cindy Munter and Assistant Superintendent for Personnel and Administration Anthony Russo welcomed the new cohort and offered advice for a successful school year.

“Our children come by our way once and we owe them our very best,” said Mr. Campo. “You’re surrounded by wonderful and supportive staff who are always willing to help. Utilize them, and in return, we ask that you give your very best each and every day.”  

Following, the new staff met administrators, became informed about district polices and procedures, and received an official district tour of all nine buildings led by Barnum Woods Elementary School Principal Gregory Bottari.
