Pitt County Beginning Teacher Induction Program happening this week

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

Though students have a couple weeks of summer vacation, it's back-to-school week for some teachers.

The annual Beginning Teacher Induction Program is happening this week in Pitt County.

There are 122 new teachers in the county this year.

That's more than normal, because of some grants the school district received.

The purpose of the program is to make sure each new teacher is ready for the 1st day of school. It covers everything from lesson planning to classroom management.

The district doesn't want new teachers to come across as new teachers on day one.

"If we can give them a lot on the front end prior to them going into their first year, hopefully, they will walk in the first day and be an effective teacher," said Bill Fraser, Pitt County Schools.

The 4-day orientation wraps up Thursday.
