ROXBURY, NJ - During the week of Aug. 28, more than 30 new eager educators attended Roxbury’s New Teacher Orientation (NTO) at Roxbury High School.

The mix of new hires included general and special education teachers, guidance counselors and leave replacements. Organized by Maryann Gibbs, Roxbury’s human resources director and the district administrative team, NTO is an event composed of two and half days of training followed by a half a day of building-based preparation.

All were greeted Tuesday morning, by a team of welcoming veteran and new administrators, with a continental breakfast. Each day followed suit with various activities of introduction, instruction and initiatives.

They got up to speed the first day on Roxbury technology with Google and Genesis overviews and advanced trainings with the next day-and-a-half geared toward instruction.

New colleagues were at ease and already working together through various sessions of the Charlotte Danielson’s Framework of Teaching Domains 1-4. The newbies under the guidance of various district supervisors worked together, shared ideas and focused on planning and preparation, the classroom environment, instruction and assessment and professional responsibilities.

NTO wrapped up Thursday morning with a Q&A session with last year’s new teachers, ALiCE Training with Roxbury Schools Director of Security Jim Simonetti, and breakout sessions on special education, co-teaching and content area Q&A.

“The goals of New Teacher Orientation are all-encompassing," Gibbs said. "It facilitates the process of new teachers acclimating themselves to our district as well as fostering a sense of teamwork and collaboration among all. These three days are an exciting time for both new teachers and administrators. They signal the year is officially here!”
