The Levittown Public Schools is pleased to announce the recent appointment of John Towers, the district's new director of mathematics and business, effective July 1. This upcoming school year will be Towers' eighth year serving the Levittown Public Schools.
Towers is a resident of Levittown who spent his first four years of his teaching career as a high school math teacher at both Division Avenue High School and General Douglas MacArthur High School. He then served as a high school math teacher at Long Beach High School before returning to the Levittown Public Schools as an administrator in the role of assistant director of mathematics. His position was later restructured to assistant director of STEAM and elementary mathematics.
While attending Molloy College, Towers received his Bachelor of Arts in secondary education of mathematics in 2006, which followed by a Master of Science degree in secondary education of mathematics in 2009. He continued his education, earning his Advanced Post-Masters Certification in Educational Leadership from Stony Brook University in 2014.
Towers is looking forward to his new role as director. He hopes "to continue to provide opportunities for teachers to work collaboratively and grow professionally so that our students can have continued success in mathematics here in Levittown," he said.
