Northport-East Northport Welcomes 20 New Teachers
The Northport-East Northport School District welcomed 20 new teachers for the 2017-18 school year during the district’s annual new teacher orientation held from Aug. 29-30, 2017. Teachers and administrators met in the high school library, shared breakfast and spent time getting to know their fellow staff members. Superintendent of Schools Robert Banzer provided a warm welcome.
“We are thrilled to have so many new, forward-thinking teachers joining our staff this year,” said Banzer. Afterward, teachers boarded a bus for a tour of the schools within the district.
Upon return, administrators reviewed those topics and practices necessary for teachers to get acclimated to the district. Technology policies, curriculum overviews, and opportunities for professional growth and mentoring were a few of the topics addressed.
The following day, teachers returned for a second day of orientation. Administrators previewed what to expect during the first few days of school, and new teachers were provided with the opportunity to engage in a question-and-answer session with a student panel. The orientation concluded with teachers familiarizing themselves with the buildings and meeting their assigned mentors.
