Chamber holds breakfast for new teachers

By Josh Beavers

The Minden-South Webster Chamber of Commerce sponsored the annual new teacher breakfast last week in Minden.

“We at The Greater Minden Chamber along with our local business community are so thankful for each and every teacher and it is our pleasure to be able to support them by being a part of their new teacher orientation as well as by giving out scholarships through our WEEF program,” said Chamber President Jana Morgan.

Webster Instructional Facilitator Becki Brown said the breakfast was a kickoff to a day of learning.

“The purpose of New Teacher Bootcamp is to provide support for new teachers and facilitate their transition to Webster Parish,” Brown said.

Areas of focus included positive expectations and classroom management.

“In addition to the bootcamp, we have a Google Classroom set up for the new teachers,” Brown continued. “In the classroom, teachers will work through the following modules: How to Become an Effective Teacher, Increasing Student Engagement, Lesson Planning & JCampus, Setting Up an Effective Google Classroom, Assisting Special Education Students, and WPSB Policies for Teachers. I will also be visiting classrooms to further support our new teachers.”
