• New Teachers Experience Joy and Jitters as Careers Get Underway


    There are about 90 new teachers in District 50 this year, and for about a third of them, they are just out of college and almost as anxious as their students. These are exciting times, to say the least.

    Insider cameras spent time with Steven Garcia on the first day of school for him and his students at Metz Elementary. We were with him as he met students and parents for the first time and we also talked with him about why he chose to become a teacher.

    As you will see in our video, he is already connecting with his students. We plan to check in with Steven over the course of the year and share the story of what it is like to take on one of the most important jobs in the world.
