2022 New Teacher Institute

July 21, 2022 

A group of outstanding Putnam County School District team members rallied together this summer and put on two powerful days of learning and networking for The Putnam County School District's New Teacher Institute.

There were an array of great door prizes and meals that community sponsors donated to the District's newest educators. It was packed full of teaching, learning, collaborating, sharing, making connections, learning engaging teaching strategies, and more! This was a remarkable event for new educators to come together and build community. We are excited to see what these educators bring to our District in the upcoming year! 


"I had the privilege of visiting numerous businesses in our Putnam County community to ask for donations for our PCSD New Teacher Institute. I have been simply amazed at the generosity and outpouring of love and support from our community! To all my teacher friends, I am here to tell you, we are not in this alone! Our community is eager and willing to support and lift you up. Please show your support for them in return whenever possible!  I am both humbled and proud to be a resident of Putnam County!" - PCSD Novice Teacher Mentor, Bobbie Keeley

As always a heartfelt THANK YOU to the many sponsors and individuals that generously donated to the New Teacher Institute!
