Introducing the 2016 Staff
Director: Terri Deletesky is an Art and Music teacher in a school right outside of Boston, Massachusetts. In her free time she plays with her band "The Spots". The band is made up of four teachers who donate the proceeds that they make at concerts to Terri's school's "Thrive Fund," as well as other organizations that help underserved children. Terri has been summering on Great Diamond Island since she was five weeks old. She has continuous curiosity about what this magical place can offer and cannot wait to share this with the campers this summer.
Assistant to the Director: Kate Burton is a Cheverus graduate who is currently finishing her sophomore year at the University of Maine in Orono where she is an elementary education major. She has had experience working with pre-school and elementary aged children as a classroom volunteer and has extensive babysitting experience on GDI. Kate and her family have summered on the island for 18 years. She is looking forward to summer and “can’t wait to start camp.”
