GLEN ROCK, NJ - Shari Krapels was approved by the Glen Rock Board of Education as the K-12 English Supervisor for Glen Rock Public Schools for the 2020-2021 school year. This new supervisory role will be a resource to teachers for content experts, problem solvers and coaches.
“I look forward to being able to fill all of those roles for English teachers in Glen Rock,” said Mrs. Krapels.
Mrs. Krapels will be coming to Glen Rock from Cresskill. She was a high school English teacher there for the last nine years. She had the opportunity to teach at every grade level in the high school. Most recently, she has been teaching Journalism, AP Language and Composition, Honors American Literature, and their senior CP level course, Comedy & Tragedy.
The K-12 supervisor role is a new addition approved by the Board of Education for the district to further support teachers in the subject area of English across all grades and schools.
“Early in my career I was really lucky to have excellent supervisors who acted as mentors to me, and I am looking forward to getting to coach and cheerlead for teachers in the same way. If not for the excellent mentors I had, I never would have had the courage to experiment with curriculum, and tackle exciting projects with my students, and I look forward to encouraging and supporting teachers as they expand their own practices,” said Mrs. Krapels.
In the role of K-12 English Supervisor, Mrs. Krapels will be working with English teachers at all levels to ensure curricular consistency vertically and horizontally, as well as liaising with the rest of the administrative team as the department's representative. “Glen Rock's reputation as an excellent school system, as well as a system that honors and values its students and teachers, has made me incredibly excited to begin working here,” Mrs. Krapels said.
She will begin her new role on July 1, 2020.
