JPS Holds New Teacher Orientation

Jamestown Public Schools held a New Teacher Orientation at the Administration Building. Superintendent Tim O. Mains addressed the new teachers.

“There was a lot of interest in your positions. We selected you to come to our district because we believe you have great potential and will help us grow as a district,” said Superintendent Mains. “We will do all that we can to provide you with the support you need to succeed. 
We know that when you are great, our kids will be great. Thank you for choosing Jamestown Public Schools for your teaching journey.”

Whether new to teaching, or just new to JPS, teachers were given the opportunity to become acquainted with the many people, resources, and services that are available to support them. This year’s group of eighteen teachers spent three days meeting, and learning, with representatives from the Jamestown Teacher’s Association, Office of Professional Learning, Human Resources, District Curriculum Coordinators, and Information Services.

The New Teacher Orientation is the first phase of a multi-faceted Teacher Induction Program focused on supporting the success and professional growth of these teachers. Throughout the school year, additional opportunities, to include workshops and mentoring, will be provided to assist new teachers in meeting their professional goals, and assuring that JPS students have the very best education.
