WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO ... Our Schools/Teachers Are the Best!!!
Parker-Varney Elementary School -- 2015 NH Elementary School of Excellence:
Under the leadership of Principal Amy Allen, the staff has been empowered to take risks and truly embrace innovation. They view themselves as both leaders and learners, researching and implementing best practices to achieve their mission to“... provide an educational environment that empowers all students to recognize and optimize their potential.” Parker-Varney
Elementary School has created a culture and climate to “reform the traditional educational boundaries” and to “authentically engage students while providing meaningful learning opportunities for students.”
Arthur Adamakos -- Secondary Principal of the Year, 2015 NH Secondary School of Excellence: Mr. Adamakos cares about every teacher, each student and every member of the Manchester Memorial community. He is not afraid to get involved in students’ lives. He listens to their problems and teaches them life lessons they often do not receive at home. He offers supportive advice to his staff members when they struggle with students and celebrates when they have memorable teaching moments, no matter how small.What he frequently reminds his staff members epitomizes the core of the man that he is. “Students may not remember all that you taught them, but they will always remember how you treated them.”
Diane Francoeur, Music Educator of the Year -- Manchester High School West:
Throughout her 22 years as a music educator, Diane Francoeur continues to maintain high expectations for learning and
student engagement. She is a great motivator, collaborator and is dedicated to her students’ growth as musicians and
productive citizens. “My hope is that every student that enters my band room will enjoy music, learning and life! May they have the courage to reach for new challenges that will bring them to their level of excellence.”
Manchester has some of the finest teachers and schools in the state. We are proud of all of you! As you read this, please take the time to recognize and congratulate each of these people and the schools they represent.
They represent the best our district has to offer.
