First-year teachers to share their thoughts
SALISBURY — As parents gear up to send their children back to school, teachers are in their classrooms getting ready to start the year.
A Post reporter interviewed three first-year teachers about why they got into teaching, their biggest fears as the first day of school looms near and what they hope their students take away from their class.
Meet South Rowan marketing teacher Tammy Tutterow, Koontz fourth-grade teacher Matt Moore and Hurley fourth-grade teacher Rachel Graham in Thursday’s Post.
Also on Thursday, look for the Post’s Back to School section. Here’s some of what’s inside:
• Meet Bridgette Reese, who went from receptionist to teacher to assistant principal at Kannapolis Middle School, and local students headed to the N.C. School of Science and Mathematics.
• Get information on public school calendars, open house schedules, weather policies, contact information for schools and Board of Education members, bell times, lunch prices and more.
• Read columns by Dr. Judy Grissom, superintendent of the Rowan-Salisbury School System and Dr. Pam Cain, superintendent of the Kannapolis City Schools.
• And get information on area private schools.
