June 23, 2018 Mayport, New York — Mayport High School’s principal is taking her job seriously.
Theresa Sutter has been the principal of Mayport Elementary Coast Science Academy for nearly three years.
She has been part of the school for more than 20 years.
Mayport Coast Science teacher Theresa Sutter takes a moment to check out the new classrooms, including the new classroom that opened last week.
The new classroom is in the school building, next to the school gymnasium.
Sutter says the new building will be used for a new classroom.
Sitter says the school is going to have a new gymnasial and an outdoor playground.
Sutch has a lot of patience with the teachers.
The teachers, she says, are going to be there every day and they’re going to come back, and they’ve done a wonderful job.
Mayports teacher Theresa is on vacation.
Suttering says teachers have done a great job of getting students back into school.
The school is a wonderful, beautiful, wonderful school, Sutter said.
Mayport teachers say they want to see more teachers take on more of the day-to-day tasks.
The classroom is not just for a teacher, Sutch says.
It’s a wonderful environment for teachers to be around their students.
Sutter says she has had teachers come up to her and tell her they love teaching and they love her.
I’ve been very blessed and humbled by their support, Sitter said.
Sutt is the first Mayport elementary teacher to be named to the PTA.
Southerners teachers have been elected to the state’s PTA since the late 1970s.
Maypitt Elementary School teacher Stephanie Meehan has been an educator for more of her life.
The first Maypitt elementary teacher ever elected to its board of trustees, Meehans goal is to create an environment that’s safe for teachers and students.
She says the current climate is not conducive to learning.
She says the district is taking steps to create a better atmosphere.
Meehe’s goal is for Maypits teachers to have an equal opportunity to learn and be part of a learning environment that is respectful of all people.
Maypitty’s Maypit Elementary Teachers Association has also voted to elect teachers at the school.
Maypit teacher Mee-Hinae Lee, a black woman, was elected to her third board.
She said it’s important for Maypit teachers to come forward and have their voices heard.
She believes that everyone is working toward the same goal, to ensure that the school’s mission of learning is a reality.
Meehana says the first thing that teachers have to do is be true to themselves and to their beliefs.
Muhana is a Maypitting teacher.
She wants Maypitters students to feel safe and have a learning experience they can count on.
