“Do Great Things”:

New Educators to Make Impact in 2022-23 School Year


On the first day of school, new faces will be ready to greet students in Los Fresnos CISD classrooms.  Seventy-eight teachers are new to the district or to their position at LFCISD for the 2022-23 school year.  The group participated in orientation and professional learning opportunities over three days that will enhance the collective classroom experience.


“We want our new educators to know that they have joined a family that provides support and tools that will help them plan and execute curriculum and activities that meet the needs of each individual student,” said Dr. Jennifer Stumbaugh, Executive Director of Personnel Services and Talent Development.


Stumbaugh says the educators will fill classrooms in each of the district’s fourteen campuses.  She says the training covered ways to engage and lead students on the paths to post-secondary college readiness that Los Fresnos CISD offers from day one.


At the end of the week, district and staff administrators served up breakfast as a way to welcome the new staff members.  Superintendent of Schools Dr. Gonzalo Salazar led the welcome before turning the program over to campus leadership.  Principals greeted the teachers with words of encouragement and gratitude about their decision to educate in Los Fresnos.


“You’ve heard great things, but now you’re about to SEE good things and you will now DO great things,” said Karina Lucio, Principal of Dora Romero Elementary.  She added, “Now they’ll really get to make an impact and be a part of something amazing.”


The educators will undergo additional professional learning next week before starting the school year on Monday, August 15, 2022.
