London City Schools Board of Education hired four new teachers during a brief special meeting on Monday.
All are set to begin work on Aug. 15 with one-year contracts, pending verification of their teaching and educational credentials.
Rosa Kinder-Flores will replace retiring Jerry Wasserman as part-time high school science teacher. Kinder-Flores, who holds a master’s degree, will work 4.5 hours per day for 184 days.
School board members hired Sarah Norris for the third-grade position recently vacated by Nikki Hursh.
Hillary Sanders, who also holds a master’s degree, will replace Kirsten Guess in a first-grade classroom.
Board members also hired Mark Stafford to teach fourth grade. Stafford will replace Claire Spangler who assumed another position in the London district.
Superintendent Tom Ben said all four new hires were screened by team leaders and principals in individual buildings before undergoing final interviews in his office.
Ben is looking to fill three more positions for the 2014-15 school year. He’s taking resumes for a middle school intervention specialist, a middle school assistant principal and a district technology coordinator.
