Mrs. Laura Humbert is the director of the Media Department. It is her job to “manage the media department and coordinate all the teachers and all the courses.” She also says she “develops the marketing for the school.”
“I worked in media production for twenty years,” she says “[I] met Dr. Trombetta while working for my previous employer. He stole me away.” Mrs. Humbert thinks that Lincoln Park has changed education by helping people “realize that different students learn in different ways.” If she were stuck on an island she would wish for “Gaven Pamer Singing.”
Mr. Dan LeRoy is the director of Literary Arts; it’s his job to make sure Literary Arts keeps up with its title. “The ability to make up a new class when it’s time to make up a new class and have it be based on things students are interested in and what they suggest, is the best part of this job.”
He came to Lincoln Park through when Mr. Catanzarite told him to apply for the job, “and I did,” he says about his friend getting him away from freelancing and into teaching. After some years at LPPACS he developed some thoughts on how Lincoln Park changed education, “which is trying to educate people one person at a time, giving people individual attention, understanding everybody doesn’t learn the same way, and you have to do different things with different people. It hasn’t changed education as much as took it back to the way it was originally.” If he were stuck on an Island all he wants is “a volleyball named Willson.”
