EDMOND — New teachers from the Edmond area were recognized this week at the Edmond Chamber of Commerce’s 8th annual New Teacher Reception. This year’s reception was held at Oak Tree Country Club.
The goal of the reception is to give the Edmond business community an opportunity to welcome the new teachers.
Teachers were there from Edmond and Deer Creek public schools, the University of Central Oklahoma, Oklahoma Christian University and Francis Tuttle Technology Center.
“The reception helps a new teacher feel a part of the district, a part of the community and lets them know that they are valued and appreciated,” said Randy Decker, executive director of Human Resources for the Edmond Public Schools. “Edmond schools appreciates its partnership with the Edmond Chamber of Commerce and the Chamber’s efforts to welcome our new teachers.”
