Revere Superintendent’s Corner by Dr. Michael Tefs

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!

As the new school year begins, it is always a special moment to welcome back our incredibly talented and dedicated employees; all 320 of them.  It is also super exciting to welcome our new hires and spend time with them during our onboarding, mentoring, and new-employee orientation sessions.

This year, we welcome an extremely talented group of professionals, bringing to Revere a variety of experiences, talents, and skills.

Please join me in congratulating and welcoming the following new employees to Revere and the wonderful communities we serve. * Denotes five Revere alumni who are returning “home” as Minutemen.
