CRTC Highlights of the Summer New Teachers

CRTC Highlights of the Summer
New Teachers

The CRTC is constantly changing and evolving, and we like it that way!  We welcome two new teachers and two industry specialists to our 2017/2018 staff.

Gail Beaudoin, Criminal Justice:  Gail joins Ellen Arcieri as our Criminal Justice team.  Gail recently retired, after over 30 years of service, from the Chelmsford Police Department.  She rose through the ranks to become a lieutenant.  Gail also has taught Criminal Justice courses at UMass-Lowell for over 10 years.

Jesse Gregoire, Auto Tech:  Jesse joins Scott Mayotte to make up our Auto Tech team.  Jesse has an extensive background in both auto tech and the trades (he is master electrician).  Throughout his entire career, he had a vision to become a teacher and give back.  On the side, he also coaches mites hockey.

Melissa Solan, Culinary and Pastry Arts:  Melissa is employed as a baking and pastry industry specialist.  She will be working with Chef Bob Mcintosh to provide students authentic experience in this field.  She has an extensive baking and confectionery background, including working at Van Otis in Manchester.  She also is currently employed as a baker.  She is a former CTE student and has a vision to be a full-time teacher.

· Jason (Jay) Smith, Auto Tech:  Jay owned an automotive service shop in Ronkonkoma, Long Island, NY, for 25 years.  He has done it all in the industry and wants to give back.  He joins Phillip Bill as our other auto tech workforce specialist.  Our students will benefit from the approximately 80 years of industry experience Jay and Phil bring to the table (above and beyond our two teachers: Mr. Mayotte and Mr. Gregoire).  Jay is also an aviation instructor.

Next week I will explain some new equipment we’ve invested in, including 10 welding stations shared by Auto Tech and Construction Trades.
