    I love seeing all these summer-relaxed, but now, enthusiastic, ready-to-go faces of AAPS’s dedicated staff. Great smiles! Great group!
    Here’s to a better-than-ever school year! Welcome home!

    What happened to all of the wonderful Northside teachers? Where have they all gone?

  3. AAPS News Editor // August 28, 2014 at 9:05 am //

    All teachers in the district had the ability to apply for the positions at Northside. Teachers made the decision to apply based on if they wanted to teach in this specific school with the new project based teaching methods. Many felt that a more traditional setting fit their teacher style in a better way. But all teachers had equal opportunity to apply. The former Northside teachers are teaching at other schools across the district.
