New Teachers Welcomed To GUHSD

Forty-eight New Teachers Welcomed
August 2008 –The GUHSD Governing Board hosted a dinner for teachers new to the district. Forty-eight new teachers, accompanied by their principal, gathered at Sunnyslope High School to celebrate the occasion. These teachers are a result of a national teacher recruitment process and an annual GUHSD Teacher Fair. The new teachers represent 6 states totaling 175 years of teaching experience. Their statistics speak for themselves: 19 teachers have Masters degrees; 3 teachers have been substitutes in GUHSD; 5 have been Instructional Aides for GUHSD; 10 were student teachers in GUHSD; and 3 are high school graduates from GUHSD. Many bring unique experiences to GUHSD, including working as a museum assistant for the Phillips Collection in Washington D.C. and designing and constructing costumes for M.I.T. in Boston; attending a university in Osaka, Japan studying Japanese Language and Culture; teaching English at St. George’s College in Santiago, Chile; and serving as a Nuclear Assistant Project Superintendent in the military.
