Dover, Ohio - The Dover school district is preparing to say goodbye to two high school staff members. 

Dover High School Spanish teacher Marianne Beadle will be retiring after the end of the current school year.

The Dover Board of Education voted on Monday to accept the retirements of Principal Teresa Alberts and Spanish teacher Marianne Beadle after the end of the current school year.

Board President Steve Mastin thanked the educators for their service to the school district and said both will be missed in their retirements. 

“That’s a sad thing for us. We have a lot of great people, and it’s time for them to go. Good for them, bad for us. We’re going to miss both of you, and we really appreciate your service," he said.

Alberts is in her fifth year as the principal at Dover High School. She came on board in 2014 after 27 years at Garaway, where she had served as an educator, coach, athletic director, principal and superintendent. Beadle has taught at Dover since 2002. 

Superintendent Carla Birney says Alberts has served Dover High School well as principal and will be remembered fondly by staff and students. 

“She is a child-centered, enthusiastic educator that enjoys our students and their activities and their accomplishments."

Birney says Beadle has been an outstanding teacher for Dover schools for many years.“I know that she’s had a positive impact on many children including my own two daughters in their learning of a new language and their love of learning just in general,” she says.

Birney says both staff members will be greatly missed and that the district wishes them well in their retirement. Alberts’ last day will be July 31st, and Beadle will officially begin her retirement on June 1st.
