We welcomed 20 new teachers to the district this summer! On Aug. 28, our
new teachers spent the day preparing for the upcoming school year with a
New Teacher Orientation.
The morning kicked off with a welcome breakfast for new staff and
administration to get acquainted. Once settled, Director of Humanities
Pam Fine and Director of Math, Science and Technology Eileen
Kelly-Gorman walked the group through everything they needed to know
about being a part of the Elwood school community. They covered topics
from classroom design to collaborating with ENL teachers.
In addition, new teachers had the opportunity learn about the world of
technology within the district from Executive Director for Technology
and Transportation Gene Tranchino and Technology Integration Specialist
Krista Albrecht. Teachers worked with technological tools utilized
within the classroom, were guided in creating their own Google websites,
