STAR New Teacher Induction

I am excited to announce that we have 34 new teachers joining the Columbus School District this year! Last week's two day induction program called STAR (Strategic Training for Academic Results) was one of the best we have ever had. The teachers were actively engaged with team building activities, informative sessions with various district personnel, presentations on how to have a productive first day of school, and training on effective classroom management techniques. The highlight of the induction was when we boarded the Falcon Pride bus and toured this beautiful city! The teachers were able to see where our schools are located, as well as a several points of interest along the way. During the bus tour, the teachers participated in a trivia contest which allowed them to learn many interesting facts about our district and Columbus. I look forward to working with and supporting these new teachers as they work towards having a very successful first year as a part of the Falcon team.

I was thankful for all the wonderful press our new teacher induction received last week. Here are the links if you happened to miss them!
