The New Teacher Welcome Breakfast is our annual exciting breakfast that welcomes more than 300 new teachers to the area each year. Join us as we welcome newly hired teachers to the Permian Basin and honor their commitment to educating our children in Odessa. Invited guests include principals, ECISD Superintendents and ECISD administrative staff. Chamber Members are invited to participate in the Community Gallery Walk, an expo featuring Chamber member businesses, services and organizations. Every teacher will walk away with your company’s information when you donate to the gift bags.
