Several new teachers were inducted into the Warren County School System this year. The New Teacher Induction Program was celebrated on Wednesday, May 10 at the Warren County Middle School library.
The program provides the opportunity for first-year educators to round out their mentorship skills. This is achieved through professional development, collaboration and instructional coaching. Over 50 teachers were included during this year’s program, who helped the future educators work toward continuous growth and improvement in student instruction. Christie Allison and Clark George are the new teacher instructional coaches.
Food and gifts were provided to the program by several businesses and schools. The teacher center, Collins River BBQ, Pioneer Nutrition, Tenneco, J’s Restaurant, All O K’sions, Southern Traditions and Mr. Petal Pusher all played a part in providing the teachers with the food and gifts.
Dr. Grant Swallows, director of schools, stated, “I am very proud of these new teachers in Warren County and appreciate this program that supports them. Being a new teacher is often challenging and Warren County puts a great deal of effort and time into making the transition as smooth as possible. I am looking forward to seeing these teachers be great teachers for many years to come.”
