Weakley County School System introduces new educators

WCP 9.9.10 A class of 32 newly hired instructors or other certified staff participated in the annual “Effective Teacher Training” events conducted at the central offices of the Weakley County Schools System recently.
The meeting is held in preparation for the recently begun school year.
“Effective Teacher Training” is an orientation process designed to introduce new certified staff to administrators they might not have had the opportunity to have met during the interview process; learn about important resources available to them for the classroom, how to access those resources; as well as provide an introduction into some of the policies and procedures of the school system and county.
The next step in the orientation process for these new employees included joining the full complement of Weakley County Schools staff at the system’s “Opening Session.”
This motivational gathering is designed to introduce new personnel to all employees, announce important information to school staff as a whole and kick off the new academic year on an enthusiastic note.
Next, these talented instructors joined their peers at their respective schools for scheduled staff development sessions prior to registration and the first day of school.
Each new teacher will benefit from guidance provided by additional follow-up sessions later in the year with assigned mentor teachers, with the supervisors of academic instruction, Drs. Charlene Alsup and Debbie Doster, and the assistant director of schools, Mr. Jeff Kelley, to ensure the transition into the school system and classroom setting has been smooth.
