Editor’s note: Second in a series on Wylie ISD’s recruiting and retention program.
Teachers stand in front of a class and communicate lessons each day to students, but as Davis Intermediate School English/language arts teacher Susan Wood can attest,
teachers also teach their fellow teachers.
Wood has mentored a teacher, Dean Latta, at Davis and he in turn has helped her with computer skills. The two teachers were among around two dozen or so Wylie ISD teachers – both new hires and veterans – along with some campus administrators interviewed recently by the News about their jobs and the mentoring program and recruiting and retention program. Teachers included first-year teachers and veterans, who include campus mentors. Mentoring is part of the recruiting and retention program.
Educators said they appreciate both the mentoring and recruiting and retention program.
