The superintendent, Dr. Harrison Goodwin, shared a video with the group entitled “Kid President’s Pep Talk to Teachers and Students.” In the video, teachers were encouraged to make the world more “awesome” by being a great and caring teacher as well as a student who continues to learn and grow professionally. Dr. Goodwin welcomed each teacher and presented them with a Chesterfield County School District lapel pin that displayed the district’s motto, “Excellence in Academics, Arts, and Athletics.” He reminded the group that as school district employees, we need to be “unified, dedicated and working together to benefit all the students in Chesterfield County.”
Other topics covered at the orientation included curriculum, student services, technology, personnel, certification, and the ADEPT process.
A delicious lunch was enjoyed by the group and allowed a time for administrators and educators to share information and get acquainted. The meal was sponsored by Founders Federal Credit Union.
