Wendy Houser - Switlik Elementary School Teacher
Ms. Wendy Houser is 34 year veteran teacher at Stanley Switlik School. She recently received a grant from the Monroe County Teachers Federal Credit Union. Ms. Houser has already made many project plans for the funding, one of the plans is a student favorite. She will purchase for each student a disposable camera so that he/she can take pictures of specific examples of their community and environment. Each one will make a PowerPoint presentation and book using the vocabulary they have learned in the new Social Science Series along with the pictures. Thank you to the Monroe County Teachers Federal Credit Union for the generous donation to Ms. Houser's program.

Key Largo School Lesson Study Team

A Lesson Study Team at Key Largo School worked side by side to develop a lesson for students addressing the issues of bullying and tolerance while making a science connection to a “Bully” in the waters of the Keys – the lion fish. The depth of the topics discussed inspired students to truly dig down and work together to address the issues through engagement consisting of in-depth conversation and activity. The team used the lesson with a large number of students from all demographics, including students with disabilities, English language learners, different races and different socioeconomic backgrounds. It was truly a moving experience.
The teachers being recognized are:
Daniel Smith – long time KLS PE teacher and KLS Community School Contact who has earned the respect of KLS students. Mr. Smith co-taught the first round of the Lesson Study and it was obvious that tensions were eased with some students simply because Mr. Smith was the teacher asking them to delve into the sensitive areas.
Michelle Wieland – 6th Grade Social Studies and Intensive Reading Teacher. Mrs. Wieland is equally loved by students and known for her excellent relationships with them due to her down to Earth, no-nonsense style. Michelle co-taught with Mr. Smith rounding out the Dynamic Duo.

Mrs. Hortensi is a natural leader who is extremely involved in “All things KLS.” Mrs. Hortensi’s leadership skills make her a fabulous role model for her students. Mrs. Hortensi was the Co-Teacher for round 2.
Elena Delgado – Middle School Language Arts Teacher and Media Specialist. Mrs. Delgado co-taught round two with Mrs. Hortensi. Mrs. Delgado is known for her caring, quiet way with students. She is a master reading teacher who is approachable and works hard to make students feel comfortable in sensitive situations.
Tina Cash – KLS Elementary and Middle inclusion/ESE teacher. Also, a master reading teacher and all-around guru, Mrs. Cash finds ways of reaching exceptional students in ways no other can. In order to ensure that all students learn, Mrs. Cash has a multitude of tricks up her sleeve!
Kyle Harrison – KLS Middle School PE teacher. Ms. Harrison is a teacher who has been an informal mentor to some female students who are at-risk. She communicates with their teachers in order to offer support to help make them successful. Ms. Harrison also works with students on her own time after school in a self-created running club where she shares her passion of Marathon running with the students.
Sandra Prew – KLS Middle School Language Arts Teacher. Mrs. Prew is one of those teachers who is always going above and beyond for students at KLS. She has always given so much of her personal time to her students and created extra-curricular activities and clubs for them. She has worked with students in Odyssey of the Mind, developed a Red Hot Readers club and been highly involved in multiple fundraisers for her students.
Melanie Tabbert – KLS Reading Coach and Middle School Language Arts Teacher. Mrs. Tabbert is another teacher who constantly goes above and beyond. Besides her accessibility for students and providing them with a top notch education in reading/Lang. Arts, Mrs. Tabbert is an amazing leader among her peers.
