The TNT Academy is like Dynamite

Last week, our new teachers participated in Day 1 of The New Teacher Training Academy (TNT) in one of our new district training rooms here at the High School. Teachers spent the first day learning about topics such as Communicating Effectively with Parents, Creating Classroom Procedures, and Managing Resources with Kim Beth Buchanan and Amy Mayer, and most importantly, from each other.

Participants broke into groups, researched a topic and then presented their findings to the rest of the cohort.

Huntsville High School Principal Beth Burt & longtime-HISD-employee-though-new-teaching Mance Park Middle School teacher Cathy Landrum enjoy the conversation.

As these teachers already have a few weeks of school under their belt, the day also provided a venue for collaboration, camaraderie and conviviality.

New teacher Doug Johnston relates a point from teaching the freshly reestablished AutoTech program at the high school.

Day Two will take place in early November.

Until then, let's all welcome to the District our new teachers!
