First Year Teachers Getting the Swing of Things

by Jessica Cervantez

The start of school can be just as overwhelming for teachers as it can be for students, especially, for first-year teachers. 

Fifth grade teacher William Bosley is excited about his first year in the classroom. The science and social studies teacher at Brookhollow Elementary in Lufkin says he has a passion to make a difference in his student's lives because of his fifth grade teacher. That is why he decided to become a teacher in the first place.

Bosley said, "I had three brothers and they had a bad reputation, but my teacher believed in me, she really changed me."

Principal Don Jackson is also spending his first year at Brookhollow.  Jackson comes from Grapeland High School.
