Meet Our New Middle School Faculty 2017-2018
We are proud to introduce the community to our newest additions to the Bronxville Middle School faculty. Mrs. Eva Marie Gambino, Ms. Kimberly Persaud, Mrs. Randi Hauser and Mr. Ivor Hanson join our staff this year. Please take a moment to read about our teachers and learn a little more about their educational and professional backgrounds.
Eva Marie Gambino- Middle School Social Studies, Grades 6 and 7
Mrs. Gambino joins us from The Northside Charter High School in Brooklyn where she taught Regents and Advanced Placement level United States History. Eva holds a Bachelors degree in Political Science and a Master of Arts in Social Studies Education, both from Hofstra University. Eva infuses technology into her classroom practice and helps students engage with content in a variety of forms. Mrs. Gambino is excited to return to Westchester, having completed her field work in the Mamaroneck school system.
Kimberly Persaud- Middle School Computer/Robotics Teacher
Ms. Persaud returns to Bronxville this year as our Computer/Robotics Teacher in grades six through eight. Kim holds degrees in Adolescent Education in Mathematics and Educational Technology Specialist, both from Pace University. Kim brings innovation and excitement to the role and has made her classroom expand into other areas as she has hosted multiple coding nights during the last year. Ms. Persaud joined our faculty last October and the positive response from children and parents made her an obvious choice to take the probationary track position this year.
Randi Hauser- Eighth Grade French (Full Year Leave Replacement)
Mrs. Hauser joins the Bronxville after working most recently in Somers school district. Before starting her family, Randi worked in the Chappaqua schools where she taught secondary French. Randi holds an MA in French from Muhlenberg College and an MA in Foreign Language Instruction from Manhattanville College. Mrs. Hauser is a full-year leave replacement for Mrs. Trigosso and she has teaching responsibilities in both the middle and high schools.
Ivor Hanson- Grade Six Mathematics (Half-Year Leave Replacement)
Mr. Hanson comes to the middle school after working in the elementary school as a substitute teacher. He is a 1/2 year leave replacement for Mrs. Rachel Sugarman who will return to us in January. Prior to working in Bronxville, Ivor worked in the Eastchester schools and at Rye Country Day school. He holds a BA from Vassar College in English, an MA in Journalism from Columbia University and a second MA degree from Lehman College in Education. Mr. Hanson is a published author and musician who has also worked in education abroad, teaching in Bhutan and Papua, New Guinea.
