What's it Like Teaching at Riley County?

The BOE recently asked our educators what it is like working in our district. We wanted to know why our veterans have stayed as long as they have, what it's like working with a grade level team, and what it's like being a new teacher at RC. Their answers reinforce why Riley County feels like family.
