I spent the morning today with 100 of EPISD’s newest teachers. It’s been more than 20 years since I was in their shoes, but I still share their eagerness and excitement for the first day of school.
This group of educators — some new to the profession ad some new to our District — had great questions for me. I am excited to know they are joining our ranks.
I know our students are in excellent hands.
During my conversation with them, we spoke about many issues impacting new teachers. One subject that stood out was creativity in the classroom. I see myself as an outside-the-box thinker and I encouraged them to do the same as they plan their lessons. EPISD is the type of district that will give teachers the freedom to be creative in their classrooms.
Positive vibes are contagious. I hope the passion I witnessed today continues throughout the year.
I wish all teachers at EPISD good luck on the first day of school. Have a wonderful school year.
