Administrators and elected officials from the Killeen Independent School District gathered to welcome this year's incoming crop of new teachers this morning.

More than 330 new KISD educators participated in the district's annual new-teacher induction event. The event was held at the Killeen Civic and Conference Center, and offered new Killeen teachers the chance to learn more about the district where they will be working, and about the support and services available to them during the school year.

"Our vision is very simple," said Robert Muller, the district's superintendent. "Student learning equals success."

The induction event kicks off a week-long program created to help new educators prepare for the 2013-14 school year, which begins Aug. 26.
