Sixteen new teachers attended the Lynbrook Public Schools’ two-day New Teacher Orientation Program on Aug. 31 and Sept. 1. Eleven previously served as teaching assistants in the district before being promoted to teachers for the 2020-21 school year.
Coordinated by Dr. Maureen Berman, assistant superintendent for personnel, transportation and student support services, attendees participated in activities and heard presentations from central administrators, directors and staff members to help make their transition a comfortable and rewarding one.
During the course of the two days, the new teachers learned more about the district’s curriculum and different departments, were trained in the area of technology, met their mentors and more. In addition, the attendees learned about the district’s reopening plan from central administrators.
