JTD Faculty Kick-Off School Year!

By Kate Merritt
While the start of the 2022-23 school year is still a few days away, JTD teachers are already on campus preparing for the year ahead. New faculty were welcomed to campus last week for our four-day "New Hires Institute." During this week, new faculty connected with one another, learned about the history and traditions of JTD, and of course, met with their mentors, and delved into the JTD curriculum. 
This week, our new faculty and staff were joined by all our returning faculty for a week of Professional Development. In addition to planning for the year ahead, faculty have been treated to sessions on cultural competency and inclusion in the elementary school years by renowned DEI consultant Rosetta Lee and a session on "The Care and Keeping of JTD Upper Schoolers" by pediatrician and author Dr. Cara Natterson '82. 

Of course, there has also been lots of time for teachers to prepare their classroom and connect with faculty in other grade levels to ensure they are prepared for their new students! 

While we still have a few days to ensure our campus is ready to go, our faculty and staff are so excited to welcome back our students next week! 

Start a discussion!
