New teachers aren't new to C-G-D district

This year, four new names appeared on the Clarion-Goldfield-Dows district teaching roster. However, none of them were stepping into the school buildings for the first time. All of them have some history in the C-G-D district.

This spring, Macoy Rohrer was a graduate of Iowa State University, and graduated from Clarion-Goldfield High School in 2013. She’s excited to be back.

“I have loved it. It’s been very welcoming,” Rohrer said. “I had tons of teachers stopping by asking if I needed anything.”

Shanice Lloyd, also a 2013 graduate from Clarion-Goldfield, and more recently Simpson College, is also glad to be back, but had more of a whirlwind start. Lloyd was hired to teach the new kindergarten section a week before classes began.

“It’s been crazy,” she said.

The high school Spanish classes brought two people back to their old classroom: Kaia Anderson, a 2012 Clarion-Goldfield graduate, and Syl Funnel, a former Clarion-Goldfield Spanish teacher who retired five years ago. Funnel agreed to come on again for a year because Anderson’s teaching certificate didn’t come through for this year, so the two will be team-teaching while Anderson finishes her requirements.
