  • Some teachers resent hiring of instructional coaches

    The school board’s decision to hire six new instructional coaches in the spring at a cost of $220,000 hasn’t necessarily been welcome news for teachers in the district, according to Board Member DeLane Pinkston.

    Thursday, Bailey Basham was sitting up, smiling and laughing at the television, and rolling around on the floor. This might seem perfectly normal for any 2-year-old, but for Bailey, it’s a sign of how far he’s come.
