“We are pleased to have David and Angie Johnson join us again to teach in the Jenkins County School System”, said Mrs. Tara Cooper, Superintendent of Jenkins County Schools. “I think it is a great testimony for our system when valuable employees want to return home to teach,” continued Mrs. Cooper.

In addition, Anne (Black) Lamb, a Jenkins County native, is also returning to her roots to teach 9th grade Math. Several new teachers join the 2017 -2018 group of new staff. Chris Anderson, Brittain Gantt, Annie Barua, and Caleb Pressey are all beginning their public school teaching careers with JCSS.

The new teaching staff participated in a day-long Induction Workshop on Thursday, July 27th, to learn valuable information about the processes, procedures, and strategies implemented within our system to educate our students and provide ongoing, job-embedded training for teachers and staff. Much emphasis was placed on getting these new teachers prepared to integrate instructional technology strategies into their daily classroom practices and to formatively assess student progress as they teach.

Lunch was provided by the Jenkins County Chamber of Commerce and Laptop bags were provided by Stich-n-Print, located in Twin City, Georgia
