Teachers new to Livingston Public Schools may never forget their first day at school. Beginning on Monday, Aug. 21, an orientation to learn the things they need to know to be successful in Livingston literally eclipsed (pun intended!) their expectations.
Experienced administrators shared their knowledge on best classroom practices to reach every child and reviewed professional responsibilities. The new faculty and staff also took part in a series of collaborative problem-solving and fun exercises. They met teacher-mentors and the principals who will offer support throughout the year.
On Day 1, the support was easy: Administrators handed out the protective glasses needed for the new teachers to safely watch the solar eclipse. Then together, they stepped outside for communal stargazing.
