In Today’s Herald: Rookie Teacher


I married a school teacher and one of my best friends is a school teacher, so I particularly enjoyed Chelsea Kellner’s “back to school” feature about West Lee Middle School’s Elizabeth Rosser’s first day of school in today’s Herald.

Lee County Schools faces lots of competition for its best talent because of higher supplements paid by some of our surrounding counties. That, plus normal attrition, has given our public school system here plenty of turnover. So Monday was the first day of class not only for a new group of first-graders, but for a large contingent of professional educators as well.

“I guess I’m worred about the same things the kids are,” Rosser, who’s a Lee Senior graduate, told Kellner. “Will I get lost? Will the food be good at lunch?”

Kellner, our education reporter, is new here herself – she’s been on board for just a couple of weeks. You can read from her story today that it looks like both she and Rosser are off to great starts.
