More than 100 new teachers welcomed at annual Chamber breakfast
More than 100 new teachers were welcomed to Renton today during the Renton Chamber of Commerce’s annual New Teacher Breakfast. This marks the 25th year that Renton-area business leaders have hosted the event to welcome new teachers to the district and the community.
The event, hosted by Renton Technical College, was sponsored by Valley Medical Center/UW Medicine, King & Bunny’s Appliance and Wal-Mart.
Some of the district’s new teachers recently graduated from college, others left industries in the private sector to obtain a teaching degree and enter the classroom. Most new teachers were hired to replace those who retired or moved to a district closer to their home.
The teachers bring a vast array of knowledge and experience and are excited to begin teaching Renton students, all of which open Sept. 2.
