Teach­ers have dusted off their teach­ing man­u­als, dec­o­rated their class­rooms and fi­nal­ized their les­son plans for the 2013-14 school year. New­ton County School Sys­tem teach­ers re­ported to schools Mon­day and Tues­day this week.

Ed­u­ca­tors pre­pared their class­rooms for stu­dent open house, which will be held tonight from 5 to 7 p.m. for el­e­men­tary schools and 6 to 8 p.m. for high schools; and to­mor­row from 5 to 7 p.m. for mid­dle schools. The first day of school is Fri­day, Aug. 2.

New teacher ori­en­ta­tion was held last week at the New­ton Col­lege and Ca­reer Acad­emy, where new school teach­ers and em­ploy­ees new to the NCSS met and min­gled with other ed­u­ca­tors. School of­fi­cials said 150 new school teach­ers were hired this year.

Eight newly-hired ed­u­ca­tors shared their ed­u­ca­tion philoso­phies, their ex­cite­ment for the up­com­ing school year, and also talked about how they per­son­ally pre­pared for school and new stu­dents.
