Teachers are dedicated, to say the least. They work long hours, spend their own limited resources to innovate curriculum, and do everything they can to make sure their classrooms are safe and welcoming for students. What keeps them motivated? What fuels their passion for teaching? Becoming more.
“To help students learn to think for themselves.”
“I enjoy the collaboration with other professionals, and the creativity needed to consider needs of different types of learners.”
“Being a child’s advocate and helping him/her realize his/her own potential is my greatest joy in teaching!”
Be More. Be an Elite Educator.
Michelle Feo is in the SPC College of Education’s Elite Educator Program. This is a partnership with SPC and Pinellas County Schools. It prepares students to teach K-6 with an ESOL and Reading Endorsement. Students are admitted as cohorts and take their classes together. A mentor is assigned for the entire program to help make an important connection.
Michelle is working on her Elementary Ed Bachelor’s Degree.
