This school year, the TEC campus has welcomed many new faces. 

There are dozens of new staff members for the 2017-18 school year. One of the new teachers, Math teacher Danielle Lanting comes to Englewood from UNC. This is her second year teaching, “I’ve been welcomed to Englewood by how everyone knows my name, whether it be by staff and students, and it is special because it is rare to find such a small community with such a strong core.”

Several students are singing the praises of Gerard Walker who is new to Economics classes here at Englewood, “Seems like a relaxed teacher, but still expects quality work. Good to have at Englewood,” Chaice Soderstrom (12) said. 

One new face to TEC isn’t new to students. Thomas Rode is the new STEAM teacher but has been at Charles Hay World School for 15 years. He made the leap to the high school this year but knows students from his time as the girls basketball coach. 

Students like his laid-back style, “He is really nice,” Charles Smith (10) said.
