New employees, about 280 strong, were welcomed Tuesday morning during the Forsyth County school system’s annual new educators orientation breakfast. South Forsyth High School’s auditorium was packed for the group, which included 35 recent college graduates, 34 former paraprofessionals, 50 former substitute teachers, 15 out-of-state transplants and eight married couples entering the system. Among those new to the system was Jamie Brown, who previously worked for more than a decade in Fulton County’s school system.
