Vitalily Yanchuk has become a familiar face in the Jamesville-Dewitt High School community, often seen roaming the blue hall or in his classroom. For the past seven years, Yanchuk has taught several classes, including Global History and Current Events, as well as many other courses like the elective Practical Law. This year however, things have changed.
Yanchuk is spending the 2023-2024 school year on the J-D administration team. He is currently working as an administrative intern, partnering with our school principal, Gregory Lawson, as well as our assistant principal, María De Jesús. He can be found assisting lunch monitors with their supervision during lunch periods, or walking around the hallways of the school.
As part of his job, Yanchuk is also working along the higher ups in the district, including assistant superintendents Nathan Franz and Peter Reyes, working on improving the way the district is run. Currently, they are creating an employee library with any forms required for employment, making it more simple for new employees to apply to join the team. In addition to this, the school is attempting to adopt a Career and Technical Education program (C.T.E Program) for audio-visual classes.
On his journey to become apart of the administrative team long term, Yanchuck is taking classes at Syracuse University and is required to complete an internship. He is currently completing this requirement with this one-year internship at J-DHS. Yanchuk predicts that he’ll likely be back in the classroom for the 2024-2025 school year. If students have any issues or questions that they need to contact Yanchuk about, they can find him during any of the lunch periods, as well as in his office in the library. Good luck Mr. Yanchuck!
