The 32 new teachers of Proviso East High School, Proviso West High School, and Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy were welcomed to District 209 at the annual New Teacher Orientation on August 15 and 16 at PMSA.
 
During the two-day orientation, the teachers learned the ropes of working in Proviso Township High Schools, attending sessions of instruction that works and effective classroom management strategies to how to use the PowerSchool system and emergency procedures in their buildings.
 
"What we were hoping to do this current year is to give them an overview and a snapshot of what our district is about, what we expect from them and what resources and support we have as a district to our new teachers as far as mentoring and induction programming, etc.," said Ms. Avelira Gonzalez, Teacher Recruitment Mentor and Induction Program Coordinator for District 209.
 
New teachers said that they found useful information in the orientation.
 
Mr. Pat Hackett, a special education teacher at Proviso East, said that he was impressed with the information he received at the new teacher orientation.
 
"Ms. Gonzalez and the staff provided us with some great presenters and some great information as we start a new school year," he said. "I’m looking forward to collaborating with the other staff and working with students on their first day."
 
Ms. Hannah Maurer, a social worker at Proviso West, said that she will be working exclusively with students in the special education program.
 
"This is actually my first job out of my master’s program and I’m really excited to get right to work," she said.
 
Mr. Joshua Burton, physics teacher at PMSA, said that he has liked what he has seen at the school thus far.
 
"This could be very special," he said. "I have to meet the kids and find out what it’s actually like. Everything I’ve seen so far, the school is small, it’s personable, and it’s informal enough that it does not look like bureaucracy is going to get in the way of things getting done. Everybody I’ve talked to has been polite and willing to listen and focused on the students. These are all really good signs."
