“It was kind of, ‘Here’s your classroom. Here’s your keys. We’ll see you in the spring,’” said Perfetti, a technology education teacher at Northern Garrett High School.
“The best survived, I think, was the attitude of the administration back in the day.”

Garrett and Allegany County school systems both have two- and three-year induction programs for new teachers, including mentors, and Mineral County in West Virginia offers similar support.
