Smithtown Central School District welcomed 28 new teachers to its staff during new teacher orientation from Aug. 29-31.
The newest faculty members began the first day by meeting members of central administration and departmental administrators. The teachers received technology training, along with information on special education guidelines, New York State Teaching and Learning Standards, code of conduct, parent communication and more. New faculty members also met with building administrators and spent time in the classrooms.
As part of the third day of orientation, teachers learned about professional development, mindfulness in the classroom, building relationships, social-emotional learning and mentoring programs and workshops.
