Teachers new to the district will be given a survey during orientation. Many topics that would be beneficial for a new hire would be listed such as school policies, grade book, incorporating common core, classroom management, etc. They will identify eight sessions that would be most beneficial to them. Results will be compiles and the topics with the most votes will be offered. Master teachers will be hired to prepare a one hour session on an identified topic. During that hour, there will be time for instruction, practice and questions. This will allow new hires to connect with other teachers and have a forum where they can get answers to their questions and new ideas from teachers who excel in that particular area.
