The new headmaster at Logos Christian Academy, Mrs. Jill Rosario along with the Logos School Board announced this week that the school is fully staffed for the 2022-2023 school year.
Mrs. Rosario is the new headmaster, with Mrs. Jillian Mikulak serving as the school secretary. Mrs. Taylor Coverston becomes the teacher of the 3rd/4th-grade class, and Mrs. Tandis Boynton is re-joining the team at the1st grade level. The preschool team is made up of Mrs. Brandie, Mrs. Jessica, and Miss Emma, as well as Mrs. Kim Jung, who will be entering her 23rd year as the Logos kindergarten teacher. Mrs. Joelle MacKay will be moving up from 1st to 2nd grade and Mrs. Dayna Mitchell will continue in her role as the 7th/8th-grade teacher. Rosario said, “We wish Mrs. Rechel, Mrs. Mora, and Mrs. Parsons well in their new adventures and are extremely grateful for their dedication to their students during their time at Logos.”
Additionally, Logos has just added two more new staff members to make the team complete. Mrs. Gretchen Felte will be returning to Logos as the 5th/6th-grade teacher. Mrs. Felte is re-joining the Logos staff after a time of serving as the Educator Curator at the Churchill County Museum. During her tenure at Logos, she taught 1st, 3rd, and 5th/6th grade for 14 years. She holds a Master of Education degree (Integrated Arts Through Curriculum) and is known for her creative lessons, passion, and depth of knowledge of Classical Christian Education. This is evidenced in her thoughts: "I believe in the philosophy of classical education, developing a love of learning in students through content-rich education rooted in examples of classic works of literature, music, and art, which have stood the test of time. I believe in developing and educating the whole heart and mind of a child through committed parental involvement with an emphasis on the character of God."
A new position "K-8 Specialist Teacher" has also been added and will be filled by Mrs. Adrienne Martinez. Mrs. Martinez is returning to Logos staff after being home to raise her youngest child for the past 3 years. Previously, she taught 6th-8th grade liberal studies at Logos for a year and has a myriad of experiences as a substitute teacher in Washoe County School District. She has taught at many different levels, from preschool to tutoring English for university students. She describes herself as having a curious mind and a love for learning, which she will surely pass on to her students. She holds a bachelor’s degree in History, with a minor in rt.
This newly created role will fulfill many needs across our campus, including relieving our combination classes in the 3rd-8th grade of juggling two math curriculums. She will be teaching 3rd, 6th, and 7th-grade math daily in the mornings. Additionally, she will be helping to cover lunch duty for the staff to give our classroom teachers a duty-free lunch each day and will be teaching Art and Physical Education to all our K-8 classes twice a week in the afternoon to give our teachers two prep periods a week.
In a time when schools are eliminating their elective programs and children spend more time in front of electronics than ever before, Logos is pleased to offer these classes to our students with a teacher who is passionate about encouraging the development of the whole child. Creative minds and healthy bodies contribute to classical education's goal of creating life-long learners.
