COLLEGE STATION - The new superintendent of College Station ISD spent his first day on the job touring all 15 district schools.
He's been with College Station ISD for 14 years, but he's been the top dog since June.
"It's wonderful to have Dr. Ealy in the classroom, he gets to see what we're doing, what the kids are doing and the kids get to know him so we love having him stop by," said Stephanie Anderson, a teacher at Greens Prairie Elementary.
And that includes kids like Luke Sanders.
"Just learning because you get to have more knowledge and skills in life," Sanders said.
Dr. Ealy's goal as superintendent is to give students, teachers, and parents the tools necessary to do that.
"We want to make sure that we are providing a tremendous instructional experience, educational experience for our kids all 177 days that we have them," Dr. Ealy said.
And it all starts on day one.
"The first day is really important because we form relationships with our children so they get to know us and we get to know them," Anderson said.
Especially from a student's perspective.
"I like it just to get to know your teachers and all your new friends," Sanders said.
