Superintendent Cochrane to recommend social studies teacher Mark Shelley as new Humanities supervisor

At the Board of Education meeting on May 24, Superintendent Steven Cochrane announced to the Board of Education that he had identified his top choice to become PHS’s new Humanities Supervisor. However, he did not tell the board the name of his selected person because he needed time to notify the candidates he interviewed but did not choose.

On June 14, Cochrane plans to recommend that Mark Shelley, a PHS social studies teacher, be appointed the new supervisor. If the board approves Cochrane’s recommendation, Shelley would fill the position of the current interim Humanities department supervisor, Barbara O’Breza, who replaced John Anagbo after he stepped down in March.Shelley was among three finalists for the position, all of whom were interviewed in late May. He currently teaches Accelerated Sociology and AP European History, and served as the head boys basketball and boys cross country coach this year.
