Celebrate Mr. Butler
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!
My name is Jeanne Wright and this is my 22nd year teaching in Volusia County, Florida. I am honored to be the 2009 Volusia County Teacher of the Year. 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!
