I am enthusiastically writing to share that the Andes Central School has hired Mr. Alan Seidman as a part-time Earth Science teacher. Mr. Seidman comes to the position with more than three decades of teaching experience. In addition to teaching at Margaretville, Mr. Seidman has been employed as a summer adjunct lecturer at SUNY Albany, Oneonta, and most recently at Cornell University. Mr. Seidman will be instructing our current Earth Science class in lieu of the current model of instruction via Distance Learning.
Andes has enjoyed the great success of our student-athletes and the leadership of our Athletic Director, Ms. Margaret Brown. With great cooperation between the Andes and South Kortright Boards of Education, the Andes boys varsity soccer players have experienced a profoundly successful year. The South Kortright team, with the added Andes teammates: Peter Fabrykiewicz, senior; Eric Reed, senior; and Sage Beemer, junior; has won the Section IV championship and has moved forward to the state level.
Lastly, as the first academic quarter of the 2010-2011 year came to a close, our learning community is grateful to share that most of the children in grades 5-12 earned an honor roll designation. ~
