Florida must Vote for our Precious Children…

Florida is supposed to be the “Education State”…

Florida’s 9000+ teacher shortage is a policy decision, and it’s the result of the hypocrisy and divisive Republican leadership in our state…

Florida Deserves Better!!!
All our precious children… Need schools with enough Teachers and Staff…and a curriculum that is unbiased, and developmentally appropriate…

We must vote Tuesday, August 23, for our precious children…Vote for a governor that truly cares…for “all” children…

#SomethingNew…

THIS is what #SomethingNew looks like. We are united, we are energized, and we are ready to win!!! LFG!!

“I, so love your energy!
You are just what our children need here in Florida…
A strong, caring governor that will bring Florida back to where we once were…

Mailing in my ballot Monday!!! “
And I voted early for …
#SomethingNew

Florida’s Law… “Don’t Say Gay”

Some school officials have been accused of warning teachers not to wear rainbow articles of clothing and to remove pictures of their same-sex spouses from their desks…

As Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law — or what critics have dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” law — goes into effect Friday, some of the state’s public school districts have begun rolling out new policies to limit LGBTQ issues and identities from being discussed in the classroom….

As Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law takes effect, schools roll out LGBTQ restrictions June 30, 2022…

Memories…

I have been an educator… advocate for children since 1972…It has been my passion….I have taught all elementary grades; kindergarten through fifth grade…Over twenty as a first grade teacher…

In addition, to my elementary teaching experience, I have a master’s in administration, and I also had the opportunity to teach at the college level, where I lead a seminar for student teachers at the University of Florida while working on advanced course work in Counseling Education….

In 2015 , seven years ago today, I retired from teaching…I was teaching first grade at an elementary school with many children from diverse backgrounds; some of whom lived in impoverished conditions…

I found this position quite challenging; yet one of my most rewarding…I felt, I did make that difference…
