Our principal Mr. Butler is an incredible leader that sees the vision of technology and collaboration. Recently our school purchased 20 iTouches with the hope we would create a program to use them with students to increase student achievement. There isn't a manual or a prescribed program. He knows this is the wave of the future and he allows us to create and experiment. For that I respect him even more. Our school body-parent, teachers, and students-dedicated 2 trees in his honor and planted them at the beginning of a future nature trail. What a fabulous educator! Thank you!

That year I was also one of five finalists for the Florida Teacher of the Year. I am National Board Certified since 1999 in Early Childhood Generalist. I look forward to a wonderful year with my first graders!
