The NUEA and District 203 welcomed new teachers into the district on Friday, August 12, at a breakfast held at Meson Sabika in Naperville. New teachers were joined by building principals, NUEA building representatives, NUEA executive board members, and District 203 school board members.
Speakers included the Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Jayne Willard, Chief Human Resources Officer Bob Ross, NUEA President Ross Berkley, the Executive Director of the Naperville Education Foundation Wendy Goettsch, and Superintendent Dan Bridges.
A common theme throughout the breakfast was the importance of fostering supportive and collaborative relationships between all stakeholders. Speakers spoke about past collaborations and gave advice for fostering great relationships with upcoming students. This positive message carried with attendees into the first day of school for students, August 17, 2023.
