Welcome New Teachers!

Today was MERSD's New Teacher Induction Day.  This is  one of my favorite days of the year.   As a Superintendent, this is the equivalent to meeting a new class at the beginning of the year.  Hosted by Scott Morrison, Director of Curriculum & Technology, it is the day we invite all new faculty to spend the morning getting to know the district better.  We introduce them to the full-year staff, share with them the district mission and vision, and provide them an overview of our expectations for teaching and learning.  I have been incredibly impressed with the level of professionalism and student-centeredness that our new members have exhibited, and I am certain they will make our team stronger.
