Chariton Area Chamber/Main Street was pleased to welcome six of the new first-year teachers and Michael Moran, who is the current Behavior Interventionist at Chariton Middle School, to the Chariton Chamber on Wednesday, Aug. 18.

The first year teachers were given a tour of the downtown Chariton square by Chariton Area Chamber/Main Street Executive Director Alicia McGee, and were able to stop and meet a few people along the way. Three of the first year teachers were not able to attend.

Two of the places the new teachers stopped were Piper’s on the northeast corner of the square and Chariton City Hall. The new teachers and Moran really enjoyed the tour and found it informative. It also helped the new teachers become somewhat more familiar with Chariton.
