Pasadena ISD Welcomes New Teachers with Vendor Fair

Nearly 600 new teachers filled the dining hall at Pasadena Memorial High School recently for the district’s ninth annual New Teacher Welcome.

The event provided teachers with the opportunity to connect with representatives from over 70 area businesses and organizations to help them get adjusted to Pasadena and help them start the school year on a positive note.

“Here in Pasadena ISD, you are not just an employee, you are a member of a work family.” Dr. DeeAnn Powell, superintendent of schools said. “Like any family, we are here to support you and help you reach your highest potential. If you are able to reach your goals, your students will believe that they too can achieve their goals.”

At the end of the event, teachers collected school and personal supplies during the door prize giveaway, provided courtesy of New Teacher Welcome sponsors and vendors; including: Gulf Coast Educators Federal Credit Union, Chick-fil-A-Fairmont Pkwy and Marimon Business Services, Inc.

The event demonstrates the close ties between Pasadena ISD and area businesses, many of which have partnered with the school district for numerous years.

“They are here today to show support of our new teachers and raise awareness about the services and items they offer that may be beneficial,” Powell said.
