New NCISD Teachers Describe How it Feels to Start the 2023-24 School Year

We sat down with some of our new teachers as they attended the NCISD New Teacher Orientation to discuss their hopes for the 2023-24 school year. 


Last week, our new NCISD teachers attended the New Teacher Orientation, where they met with district leaders, spoke to vendors, won prizes, and learned all about the New Caney ISD culture. During their busy week, several of our new hires sat down with us to discuss how they are feeling about the new school year. Here’s what they had to say:
