District 220 Welcomes 42 New Teachers

The new educators were greeted to the district at a new teacher orientation on Aug. 7.


There are 42 new teachers coming to the classrooms of the this year. The district welcomed these new educators in a special orientation on Aug. 7.

Some of them are veteran teachers with many years of experience and wisdom behind them, while others are recent college graduates, eager to take on their first job. They all have stories to share, and Barrington Patch will tell some of them over the next couple of weeks. We’ll introduce you to some of the people who will be teaching your children during their time at District 220.  

, Superintendent of Barrington 220 School District, gave a warm welcome to the new teachers at the orientation. He emphasized the fact that everything the district does is about the betterment of the kids.

“We want to make sure you are successful; I want you to keep that in mind,” he said to the teachers. “You being successful is good for us. It’s good for the kids, it’s good for the parents, it’s good for everyone. Because the better you are in the classroom, you better you connect with kids, the better we’re all going to be.”

Read about first-grade teacher Pamela Blue on Barrington Patch tomorrow. She may be considered a new teacher this year, but she’s definitely not a stranger at the school.

Happy to hear that some teachers that were hired are veteran teachers. A veteran teacher has much more experience and skills needed to deal with many complications that can emerge in the classroom than a teacher fresh out of college.

I hope that they know the Mexican Language and NOT Classical Spanish! Carpentersville will be sending a ton of sons and daughters that might not have been taugh English as a second language. At least on my street you don't hear English.

Definitely disagree with your comment Annamarie Bader. How are our"fresh" teachers out of college supposed to ever gain experience? Soon those veteran teachers will retire... and then what?
