Rowlinson steps up as new science department head

Before the new school year, science teacher Ryan Rowlinson became the new head of the science department. The previous head, Dr. Perito, retired, leaving the position vacant for a new leader. 

Rowlinson became head after being interviewed by principal Dennis Lynch during the summer break. After accepting, he went straight to work. Having worked at Everett High for almost 10 years, Rowlinson has a profound knowledge of the school’s science department, as well as its teachers. 

Biology teacher Anthony Cucinotta thinks that Rowlinson is a great addition to the position. “Rowlinson has been great, especially for me as a first-year teacher,” says Cucinotta. “He’s helped me a lot with getting routines going and with how to teach in the classroom.” 

When asked about Rowlinson’s job performance, Cucinotta said, “Everything seems to be running smoothly under Rowlinson.”

Rowlinson was a district mentor and a biology teacher at EHS for ten years before expressing excitement and interest in being department head after Dr. Perito’s retirement. 

Before working in Everett, Rowlinson taught in Boston and wanted to teach somewhere similar. “That summer, I was interviewed at the Madeline English School for a K-8 position,” said Rowlinson. “They sent me over to the high school and Erick Naumann hired me on the spot.” 

“The availability of common curriculum resources,” said Rowlinson when asked about what could change in the science department. “And the opportunity for teachers to be a part of that choosing those resources.” 

When asked for tips for upcoming science teachers, Rowlinson said, “Build strong relationships with your students, set clear expectations but also, have fun.”
