We would like to welcome four new staff members to Pfeiffer, who started with us on Jan. 3rd. Mr. Steve Pritchett has replaced Mr. Andrew Richardson as our Community 6.4 language arts and social studies teacher. Mr. Pritchett was working as an ISG tutor at Pfeiffer before assuming his new role, and we wish Mr. Richardson luck as he begins a new job with the University of Akron. Mr. Ryan Whited will replace Mr. Pritchett as an ISG tutor. Mr. Whited is finishing his Masters degree in special education and recently finished his student teaching at Edison Middle School. Ms. Rose Mickley is filling in as our 6th grade counselor for Mrs. Pittman, who had a beautiful baby boy over Christmas break. Ms. Mickley brings over 30 years of counseling experience and is enjoying getting back to working with students. Finally, Mr. Benny Griffiths will be working as our assistant principal for the remainder of this year. Mr. Griffiths comes to us from Northwood Elementary School in the North Canton City School system after 30 years of leadership. All of our new staff members are wonderful people to work with and truly enjoy working with the children at Pfeiffer.
