On Tuesday, new SMSD team members were welcomed to their first day of New Team Member Academy by members of the Shawnee Mission West band, cheerleaders, and high school mascots from across the district.
New Team Member Academy is a three-day professional development opportunity specifically designed for new team members. During the Academy, new team members will tour their new work environments, meet colleagues, attend training sessions, and prepare for their first day in Shawnee Mission classrooms.
“In Shawnee Mission we truly believe that people are our greatest resource. We’re thrilled to meet our new team members and start the year SMSD Strong,” shared Pam Lewis, Director of Elementary Human Resources. “We hope every team member starts the year feeling energized and supported.”
