This past Thursday and Friday I was privileged to stand along side some of the finest literacy experts in Hamilton County as we welcomed our newest K-5 teachers! With the PD room filled to capacity, we introduced these new recruits to the very best ways to support literacy in their classrooms....in other words, the Hamilton County Schools way.
From our Strategic Framework, to the Benchmark Assessment System, to the First 20 Days, we made sure that these teachers had what they needed to be successful. I was inspired by their excitement. I was in awe of the tremendous responsibility we have to create a literate society. I am truly looking forward to what the 2012 school year has in store!
