P-H-M Welcomes New Teachers

There will be a bunch of new faces in Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation when school starts next Wednesday, August 19, and we’re not just talking about students!

Today was New Teacher Orientation Day at P-H-M. As an “A”-rated school district, we are extremely lucky to be blessed with a very energetic, creative and talented teacher and educational staff. Today Superintendent Dr. Jerry Thacker welcomed nearly 60 more into the P-H-M family. P-H-M is not only an excellent school system for our students, but it’s also a great place to work!
