Teacher orientation

Hawthorn Welcomes New Teachers

Approximately 30 new teachers attended the New Teacher Orientation at Middle School South this morning led by Dr. Karen Maturo, Coordinator of Staff Development.  One of the things she discussed was the Hawthorn District 73 culture. She stressed that teachers should “love first, teach second.” She explained that teachers should genuinely care about their students and find ways to best teach each one. The orientation also provided an opportunity for the teachers to get a better sense of the Hawthorn community. The teachers enjoyed taking a bus tour around the many diverse neighborhoods that make up Hawthorn District 73.
