COLLINSVILLE - Not a day went by this week when Zeb Talley wasn’t in a classroom. The interim superintendent for Martinsville Public Schools talked with students, visited teachers and checked to see if anyone needed help.
The same went for Henry County, where superintendent Jared Cotton also dropped in on classrooms and asked questions of his students.
“The new year is an opportunity for a new start with new possibilities,” Cotton said. “There was a sense of excitement in the air, and teachers were excited to meet their new students. The students were in good spirits and several commented that they really like their new teacher.”
Talley agreed that this was a time to start fresh.
“ I love seeing the young people, the excitement in their eyes and the teachers’ eyes. We’re glad to have them back,” Talley said. “We feel like some new, good things are going to happen.”
