When students head back to school on Wednesday, August 22nd, they’ll notice some new faces … teacher faces!
Today was New Teacher Orientation for Penn-Harris-Madison. The district hired just 68 new certified teachers for the 2018-19 school year—the most in recent history! The reason for the large incoming P-H-M teacher “freshmen” class … retirement and relocation of outgoing faculty. All 15 P-H-M schools will have at least one new teacher joining their ranks.
This year’s new teachers are not only the largest group, they are also a very smart group … with more than 300 combined years of experience (most having an average of eight years classroom teaching background), 20 have master’s degrees!
