Teacher of the Year
New Castle Elementary Teacher of the Year 2021
Mary Kay DeCampli
Mary Kay DeCampli has worked in the Colonial School District for 18 years. After teaching at Colwyck, she has spent the last seven years as a math interventionist at New Castle Elementary School. “I teach because I want to make a difference,” DeCampli says. After graduating from the University of Delaware DeCampli went on interviews with several local school districts but when she walked into Colwyck she felt the principal was different, so different she says the building itself felt like home. “Colonial offers top-notch professional development to support teachers’ needs. The coaches in the buildings have become a vital resource to both novice and veteran teachers. Our teachers are provided the tools necessary to provide a quality education. I was lucky to find my home in Colonial!” DeCampli says.
