Two new teachers have been added to the staff of the Hugh J. Boyd Jr. Elementary School this year. In third grade, Lauren Whittaker of Beachwood has taken over the third grade. Mrs. Whittaker was previously a substitute at HJB, and comes highly recommended by Principal Jane Strada. Mrs. Whittaker is taking the job of Mrs. Maryanne Omert, the 40-year third grade teacher who retired in December 2006. Miss Sharon Smith, another legendary teacher, who took over 3rd grade duties the rest of that year, has also now retired as of July 2007. In the Early Childhood Education part of the building, the newest teacher is Miriam Schneider, who is known better around Seaside Heights (including by the entire Board of Education and even Mr. Ritacco, I think) by her childhood nickname of “Squirt”. Mrs. Schneider is originally from Island Heights (IH and Central Regional people may know her by her maiden last name, Waring), and now makes her home in Seaside Heights. Husband is boardwalk businessman Paul Schneider, and the couple are parents to a beautiful baby girl.
