Business community welcomes new teachers
The West Shore Chamber of Commerce held their annual Teacher Luncheon on Aug. 11 at LaCentre in Westlake to welcome the new educators joining the Westlake and Bay Village school districts this fall.
The Education Committee, co-chaired by Andrew Mangels, director of Westlake Porter Public Library, and Nancy Ralls, career development coordinator at West Shore Career Tech, presented welcome bags containing items donated from Chamber businesses to 20 Westlake teachers and nine Bay Village teachers. The teachers’ lunches were donated by St. John Medical Center.
Dr. Terri Pope, president of the Tri-C Westshore Campus, provided the keynote address and gifted each of the teachers with a copy of the book "How We Learn" by Benedict Carey, the foundation of her talk about the constantly changing classroom and how modern brain science shows us how we can enhance learning in every situation.
The Westshore Chamber of Commerce Education Committee is grateful to all who participated and supported the teachers as they begin their new positions.
