Each year, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School District welcomes teachers who are beginning their career in their first year of teaching. These novice teachers are recent graduates, fresh and eager, but often without resources to get them started in the classroom. The Public School Foundation is pleased to offer novice teachers $200 at the beginning of the year to use as they see fit. Donations to the PSF Teachers First Breakfast and Roses fundraiser each spring make this event possible.
The checks are presented at an afternoon “tea” where novice teachers from across the district can meet each other as well as mingle with administrators, staff and the school district’s superintendent.
