The guidance area is used for students who need assistance with their schedules, filling out paperwork for scholarships and college applications, and discussions on how to make the most of their time at A-Tech and beyond. The new guidance area also houses a conference room that helps students, teachers, guidance staff and parents discuss issues in a private setting.
Staff changes include Paul Brockett to principal and the addition of a new math teacher, Cody Lewis. Lewis is a graduate of Kent Ashtabula where he earned his associate’s degree. Then he moved on to obtain his bachelor’s degree at Youngstown State University. After earning his teaching certificate he was a substitute teacher in the Pymatuning Valley School district, and a tutor for the Bloomfield schools before ultimately accepting the position of a math instructor with A-Tech.
“I've really enjoyed my first few months here at A-Tech,” Lewis said. “The staff has been very supportive, and the students are great. It is a very positive work environment and I am looking forward to the rest of the year."
