New teachers welcomed during annual summer training seminar Monticello Elementary Digital Learning Coaches share software programs virtual students can use at home

 Chief Academic Officer Brian Dishman led the annual new teacher support training where new teachers are familiarized with the district and curriculum specialists get acquainted with them so they can be of assistance to them at each of the school buildings. The intent of the local four-day teacher seminar, along with future trainings, is to make sure they have the resources and support they need to have a successful school year. They are being introduced to Wayne County’s curriculum instruction resources, classroom management, and local technology involving everything from: Infinite Campus to Smart Boards to Google Classroom. The curriculum coaches across the district assist teachers at each school and serve as consultants along with one other teacher mentor assigned  to each of the new teachers throughout the school year. They also benefit from digital learning coaches at the school levels that help enhance teachers' technology skills. In fact, each building has two teachers that have also taken on the duty as a digital learning specialist.
