The Liberty County Board of Education hosted 67 new teachers July 27-28 during its orientation, which was held in conjunction with Georgia Teacher Evaluation Program training.
Orientation sessions covered the following topics: child abuse and neglect, led by school social workers; school policies, led by Assistant Superintendent Mary Alexander; the code of ethics, led by Superintendent Judy Scherer; a technology overview; Smartboard training; and online lesson planning, led by the instructional-technology specialists.
As they do each year, local vendors lined the board office foyer with goodies and information for the new hires. Door prizes were provided by Geo Vista Credit Union, American Fidelity, Shaw Hankins, The Heritage Bank, YMCA of Coastal Georgia and Organo Coffee.
BoE Chairwoman Lily Baker kicked off the orientation with an inspirational speech about her years of service with the school system, which she called “the greatest school system in the world.”
