Another new addition to the staff is math teacher Eliza Genkowski. She teaches Algebra 1 and Geometry.
Before teaching at Delaware, Genkowski had never taught in a traditional high school.
“I was at a middle school my first few years and then I was at a Career Center for 10 years,” Genkowski said. “I didn’t go to a traditional high school, either, so I’m really looking forward to the team spirit and the football games and the pacer spirit, excitement and energy.”
Genkowski graduated from Mount Vernon Nazarene University.
In high school, Genkowski played competitive ice hockey, cheered and played tennis.
Some of her favorite memories were traveling with her ice hockey team and hanging out with her friends.
“We went to Colorado,” Genkowski said. “We got our butts kicked, but we were one of 12 teams in the entire country to go to Nationals. And so it was a really cool experience. I also did a trip like a junior senior trip [to Greece].
Genkowski coaches gymnastics as well as doing gymnastics herself in her spare time.
“I am so excited to be here,” Genkowski said. “I live in Delaware and I love this community … I’m excited to see students that I know around town and just really get to know the community from a different perspective.”
