Earlier on this summer I had the privilege of introducing you to a couple of new faces that you will see around our school district this year. Now that summer is wrapping up and we are on the eve of a brand new school year, I am very happy to announce that all of our remaining positions have been filled!
There will be several new faces joining us in the hot lunch staff this year. Donna DaBillo has accepted our invitation to serve in our hot lunch program in the elementary school. She has 25 years of experience in food service management.
Denise Trainor is also a new face in the kitchen this year. Denise is a people person who loves being around children, so she will fit right in at Hudson Elementary School! She is also very active in her church, and has helped out with the religious education program as both a director and a teacher.
Rounding our our newcomers on the hot lunch circuit is Terri Hoffman. Teri is a graduate of East High School in Waterloo and enjoys staying busy and being around people.
Mrs. Dieken has left her position as 7-12 Counselor for a position in another school district. We are happy to announce that just this week we were able to find an outstanding replacement for Mrs. Dieken who will undoubtedly be able to pick up on the good work that has been the tradition in the Hudson counseling department.
Marcy Baltz joins our staff after serving at Boone High School since 2005. She began her tenure at Boone as a middle school science teacher, and in 2008 joined the counseling department at Boone High. Her husband's job brought them to the Cedar Valley, and we were fortunate to be able to grab her up! Marcy holds a Bachelor of Science degree in secondary education and a Master of Science degree in counseling, both from Drake University.
Please join me in welcoming all of our new faces at Hudson this year!
