DEB STASEK RETIREMENT

West Shore Career-Tech says good bye to long-time Family and Consumer Science teacher Deb Stasek.  Deb started her career as a “Home Economics” Teacher at the former Horace Mann Middle School.  For the first two school years (75-76 and 76-77), Deb held Long Term Substitute contracts at Horace Mann.  After being offered a contract for the 1977-78 school year, Deb resigned as the result of her husband’s job taking them both to California.  She and her family returned to Ohio and to the Lakewood City Schools beginning with the 96-97 school year where she was a Family and Consumer Science teacher first at West Shore Academy, then Harding Middle School, and the last four years have been at Lakewood High School.

West Shore wishes Deb a wonderful retirement filled with golf, grandchildren, and travel.
