In the fall semester of 2017 at HHS, five weeks into the school year there were no teachers for Arabic, English, and ceramics class because the original teachers that were filling these spots resigned shortly before the school year started.   

“After a thorough search, all positions have now been filled,” Dr. Anderson said. 

All classes had teachers selected and working by the end of the week of October 2.

“In order to fill a position, you have to find the right candidate for it,” Mrs. Murphy said. “In specialty positions it is difficult to find that person, so we always shoot for sooner rather than later, but it doesn’t always work out that way.”

The classes without teachers were so specific, like Arabic, it was hard to find permanent teachers for these classes.

“It was harder to get extra help,”Justin Zaia, 12 said.  Justin is in the Arabic class and he said that it was hard to get help because the substitute didn’t know how to help them. But he said after the teacher was set, it was much easier to understand what and how they were supposed to do things.

”We didn’t have a teacher for four weeks, so it was chill,” Dwight Johnson, 12 said.
