Eleven of the twelve Martin County elementary schools received an “A” report card from the recent Florida Department of Education’s School Accountability Report.
The word elementary relates to the basic, essentials or fundamental part of a primary need for love nurture and knowledge. When the unaware person thinks of elementary school, they at first probably think of the misconception that elementary school teachers select this career because it is easy with no stress which will enable them to work and raise their own families with ease because all that they were teaching were the little children to say their ABC’s and count their123’s. Well! That misconception is all over now. As the saying goes, “actions speak louder than words” and from the caliber of young students in grades K-5, we just have to say that “Elementary School Teachers Rock!!”
Anyone that listens to the news or surf the internet know that children have increased their intellect and visibility by the challenging feats they have had to conquer and endure (some as a results of adults). Children were a major part in the 2008 presidential campaign being very vocal and uniting themselves as a children’s front. It was good to see the enthusiasm and courage they exemplified in such an important cause. Children get their ideas from the exposure they receive in acquiring their education.
It has become more and more apparent to Educators and others that early childhood education is where the initial focus of education should begin. We must raise up strong and firm foundations in which to build and secure the future for all to live and thrive in peace and prosperity. Elementary teachers do more than just ‘rock’. . . they roll, jump hoops, climb hills, run miles, they do all that it takes and more to get the job done of educating and stabilizing young impressionable minds.
Look at all 12 of Martin County’s elementary schools and know that the teachers at these schools did not accomplish this success by magic and wishful thinking. They did it one day, after day after day through hard work, discipline problems, disappointments etc. But now they can rejoice and we can applaud them, the students, principals, parents, et al for their jobs well done. Congratulations to All.
