ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany High School students are seeing a lot of new faces at the head of the class.

12 new teachers started at the school in August, five of them are brand new to the profession.

Principal Rodney Bullard said that the faculty uses collaborative planning time each day to show them the ropes. 

Teachers are also evaluated by administrators.

They look at what the teachers struggle with and ensure that they are making improvements.

There are even two instructional coaches for teachers in the school.

"Several times a day they go in, as well as administrators, and make sure that we can support them because we want them to learn how to manage through instruction versus just going in and them doing a good job. We want to make sure it's very targeted as to what they do," said Bullard.

There is still one teaching position in math that needs to be filled but Bullard said that they are in the final stages of hiring someone.
