The month of August is an exciting time at North East ISD. The long list of preparations for the new school year doesn’t seem to end, but with unwavering determination it all comes together. For new teachers a big part of that preparation is New Teacher Orientation, which nearly 350 teachers attended on Aug. 13 at Churchill High School.
“You can feel the energy, you can feel the passion in the room this morning and that’s exactly what the beginning of the school year is all about,” said Brian G. Gottardy, superintendent of schools, as he gave his welcome speech. “We are very excited and very proud to have you as a teacher at North East Independent School District. Your time at orientation will enlighten you about the tradition of excellence here at North East ISD.”
Teachers that recently walked across a college stage to the classroom and seasoned teachers alike were eager to learn more about NEISD and all it has to offer.
I’m excited about some new challenges this school year,” said Sarah Klein, a new math teacher at Ed White Middle School. “All the talks have been super great. I’d never met the superintendent before so getting the chance to hear him speak was very nice.”
The countdown is on for these new teachers as the first day of school approaches on Monday, August 26.
