Today marked the last day of Teaching Excellence Induction for the 2013-2014 cohort, so it was time to have some fun and get to know our community. Teachers set out across Houston to complete a Teaching Excellence scavenger hunt in the communities in which they will soon teach. Getting to know your school’s community is one of the most exciting parts about teaching, as our new teachers discovered this morning.
See the great pictures below of teachers exploring the KIPP: Houston, Spring Branch ISD, and YES Prep communities across the city of Houston.
Teachers met at their campuses…
and set off to find many important locations, the first and most of important of which was coffee!
After getting caffeinated, teachers found a place to fuel up their cars.
New teachers found places to work…
They found places to buy school supplies,
places to grocery shop,
and, of course, a place to eat and relax after a long day at work!
