“In my department, we have five brand new teachers and so just really excited to hopefully get to mentor them and show them the path,” said Jennifer Jordan, Abilene High Teacher.

“I have two daughters that are in AISD currently and I am a product of AISD. I wouldn’t be anywhere else.”

Even veteran teachers like Jordan get excited when this event comes around and to add to that buzz, they brought in Gerry Brooks, a YouTube star that is also an elementary school principal from Kentucky to speak.

“He’s just funny but he is also real and it’s things we see and so to hear him saying it’s just hilarious,” said Mallory Moser, Lee Elementary.
