New Science teacher Tommy Evarian reviews material with his class. Evarian is also a retired engineer.

The start of another school year brings about lots of new things: new classes, new lunch options and new teachers. This year, KHS welcomed six new teachers, a new secretary and two new members of the counseling office staff.

Kayla Buckner is principal Angela Blessing’s new secretary. She worked at Bon Air previously, but she “absolutely loves working for KHS.” Baylee Martin and Madison Wyant are new to the counseling office this year. Martin is a counselor working students who have last names Cas-H, while Wyant is a counseling facilitator.

While Nicky Parry is not new to KHS, she is in her first official year teaching at Kokomo. She teaches English, and was a long term substitute last year. Parry loved the atmosphere and when they offered her a position she jumped at the chance.

“Every class has their own unique personality sets. Everybody has something different to bring to the table and I never know what I’m going to get from everybody,” she said. There’s days when some shine more than others, but then those people will shine another day.”

Rose Pax is also new to the English department and teaches English 9  and 10. For Pax, there have been highs and lows so far this year. She is hoping to get to know her students better as the year goes on.

Zach Whiteman taught at Central for the last five years. He teaches health and PE. Whiteman also coaches the swim teams, so you can often find him in the pool.

KHS’s new physics and chemistry teacher, is Tommy Evarian. He is a retired engineer and started teaching as his second career. Evarian is enjoying working at KHS and hopes to be here until he retires. Again.

Laura Ousley was attracted to KHS because of the variety of classes and programs the school offers to students. Ousley and another new teacher, Ashley Hale, are resource teachers.

“I teach learning skills and hub, help students with assignments in other classes and reteach material if needed,” she said.

With new teachers and staff throughout the building, it can be a little overwhelming, but take time to get to know and you’ll understand why they all chose to be at KHS.
