KENILWORTH, NJ – Four Kenilworth teachers received tenure at Monday’s Board of Education meeting.

Samantha Nelson and Debra Terranova of Harding Elementary School and David Kaplow and Marie Gallina of David Brearley Middle School/High School were recommended for tenure by Superintendent Dr. Thomas Tramaglini and approved by the board.

“This body of work presented a reflection of what each person has done for the Kenilworth Public Schools, as well as a motivational directive on what the next years should be like,” Superintendent Dr. Thomas Tramaglini said in his weekly roundup. “As I have said in the past, tenure is recommended to those who meet the outstanding level of educational performance.”

Nelson and Terranova are basic skills instructor at Harding Elementary School. Kaplow works in the special education department, according to the David Brearley website. Gallina teaches science at David Brearley Middle School.
