"You didn't pick us, we chose you for your enormous potential and talent," said Superintendent Tim Mains to a group of new Jamestown teachers. "I still remember my first year as a teacher. It was such an exciting time in my life. I had some great successes and some great failures but I became a better teacher for it. I believe that learning isn't just for students; it's also for adults. As teachers, you must keep learning and growing in order to become a truly great teacher."
