A New Teacher Orientation was held at the Palmetto Learning Center on Monday, Aug. 8. The Chair of the Board of Education, the Superintendent, and other administrators met with this group to offer guidance, support, and assistance to the new teachers. The district feels it is very important to show this support to new teachers because it has a positive impact on teacher commitment, retention, instructional practices, and student achievement. Support of teachers leads to higher job satisfaction and commitment and therefore, teachers are more likely to remain with the district.
