Ms. Ava Laera (D'Elia)

Thank you for visiting my page.  My name is Ms. Ava Laera (D'Elia), and I am one of the Deans at SHS.  After four years at SHS, I am eager to embark on another year at this incredible Raiders community.  At strategic points in the year, I, along with my department, conduct seminar classes, depending on your child's grade level, starting with Freshman Seminar in the fall.  In the months that follow, I will run Junior Seminar and Sophomore Seminar in the new year.  For seniors, I will be offering a Senior Workshop this fall to help students navigate the college application process. My department and I will also be conducting various day and evening programs throughout the year to provide helpful and relevant information to students and families.

Having a combination of students in the high school and A-School, I have the fortunate opportunity to connect with my students on a deep and personal level.  Getting to know my students well is always one of my top priorities, and I look forward to forming meaningful and lasting relationships with my new students and deepening my relationships with my known students.

As the year unfolds, please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or celebrations you or your child might want to share.  Thank you, and I can't wait to be a resource to you and your child this year and in the years to come!
