GCPS orientation aims to inspire, introduce teachers to district’s culture

Tuesday was the start of something new for University of Central Florida graduate Nykyle Gooden-Peters.

The recent college graduate spent his morning in a packed ballroom at Infinite Energy Center listening to a crash course in working for his first full-time employer. As a STEM teacher resident, Peters isn’t a certified teacher yet, but is on track to become one through a program for recent college graduates. He’ll be earning his certification on the job with Gwinnett County Public Schools during the 2019-20 school year.
