“Everyday we were told to take care of ourselves. Everyday we were given insight into the ways in which teachers are expected to teach and to learn as part of this community… When the entire staff arrived for the first day back to work, I felt like I wasn’t just thrown into the deep end. I could follow conversations and most importantly, I was conversant in the language and culture of the school.”

-High School English teacher Hope Teague-Bowling on her on-boarding experience at ACS
