Florida… The Education State…

Amen…💕🌈🙏🏼🍎

Through all the challenges facing our children…I keep holding onto hope, and pray for that better day… Opportunities come and go… We have a president that cares…and is providing opportunities…funding and resources…And trying to keep children safe during this pandemic…

Then, we here in Florida are dealing with a governor that does not care…And then he does something quite unexpectedly and why…

@GovRonDeSantis…
How I have held onto hope.. For some reason you will be eliminating our rigid testing system, and developmentally inappropriate curriculum…Is this true???

So many questions…

What will this mean for the success of our children?
You describe Florida, “The Education State…”

However….Putting children first in safe schools will be Florida’s direction…

Means…Provided them with the 7 billion dollars you are withholding…from the Biden administration…And allowing vaccination and mask mandates in our schools…

If your real intent to give our children opportunities…We definitely would be…

Florida…The Education State

Florida is the “Education State.” Today I announced our plan to make Florida the first state to fully transition to progress monitoring. No more FSA testing. No more Common Core. https://twitter.com/GovRonDeSantis/status/1437832550253277184?s=20

Reflections on my Teaching…

image

I am quite proud to have been a teacher for almost forty years…

I came to teaching quite by accident

I always had an interest in the arts; perhaps becoming a fashion designer

However, overcoming my own challenging childhood, lead me the realization….I had a tremendous need to help others….

So, in my senior year of high school, I made the decision to become a social worker, and attend Florida State University, in Tallahassee

In sharing my decision with an uncle…It was he who suggested, becoming a teacher, because it would better suit me… He believed it was a more stable career for a young woman…

Then, following this decision, one particular day… I will never forget; in my senior English class at Miami High School;

My pretty, young favorite teacher; Ms. Kempler, commented she liked my dress…

She said that it reminded her of the University of Florida… It was the University’s colors of “orange and blue“…

Wow, I so appreciated her comment! Back then, not feeling noticed … Ms. Kempler noticed me!

Ms. Kempler had gone to the University of Florida; in a town, Gainesville… I had never even knew

Well, it was then I decided in 1966, I was to become a teacher, and go to the University of Florida… And I must …

Thank, Dear Ms.Kempler ….♥️

And I have never looked back… Becoming a teacher was the most important decision I made to channel my passion for helping…

Teaching young children!!…
