High School is an incredibly important period of life. It influences your social, academic, and personal life for four years, and prepares you for college and a career. This is the reason County Prep High School is my school of choice. County Prep's thriving social environment, challenging academic curriculum, and wide variety of electives will help me successfully carry out my plans for the future.
I filed an application with Chesapeake Public School systems, so that I could become a part of an organization that values teamwork, dedication, and academic success. Chesapeake Public Schools exhibits a positive, collaborative, and cooperative learning environment not only for the students but for their employees as well. Being committed to the academic development and success with the help and support of students, parents, teachers, and other staff members is a plus to any working environment. These are great attributes for any organization to possess, which is why I chose to become a part of the Chesapeake Public School.
I was chosen to sit on the committee due to my many years of service in the education system. I bring 15 years of experience as an educator, coach, mentor and supervisor.

I hold two masters degrees in education; which has afforded me the knowledge and wherewithal to prefect my craft.
The Candler County School District is a small, rural school system located in southeast Georgia. Candler County is made up of the city of Metter and the town of Pulaski. Currently, there are four schools in Metter. Employing 369 faculty and staff, bus drivers, and central office staff, the school system is the largest employer in the county. Metter was founded in 1889 and incorporated in 1903 as a town in western Bulloch County. However, in 1906 Dr. Wallace Kennedy spearheaded a movement to create a new county with Metter as the county seat. The movement became reality in 1914 when Candler County was carved from parts of Bulloch, Emanuel and Tattnall counties and became Georgia 's 150th county. Metter re-incorporated as a city in 1920.

If you’ve never been to Wollstonecraft NSW, you are missing out on one of the best suburbs in Sydney. It’s a beautiful, nice and quiet suburb located next to the busier suburb of Crow’s Nest, but not so close to get caught up in that hectic lifestyle. Wollstonecraft has several properties that offer magnificent water views and the train and bus transport systems run on a frequent and convenient schedule. Unlike some North Sydney suburbs, this one offers ample parking. The combination of amenities and the lifestyle make Wollstonecraft high in demand, which makes it a bit more expensive than some of its surrounding suburbs. The locals who live here like it just the way it is.

Prosper, Texas is one of the last additions to Collin County and has a current population of over 12,000 residents (Minor, 2010). Prosper’s establishment came about from the merging of two farming settlements in 1902, however the city’s name was not incorporated until 1914 (“History”, n.d.; Minor, 2010). According to the city’s webpage, Prosper is committed to being family-oriented and providing every resident an opportunity to experience quality living while maintaining small town ideals (“About Prosper”, n.d.). The Prosper Independent School District’s (PISD) vision to “reach everyone, everyday” (“REACH Philosophy / REACH”, 2002) mirrors the town’s belief in including everyone. Despite the exceptional growth within the city over the past few years, the school district is determined to meet the needs of its student population. One way in which PISD plans to ensure all of its students receive an equitable education, is through its adoption and implementation of the Response to Intervention (RtI) program.
The people of Beacon Hill are a group of friendly folks who have no qualms with saying hello when you pass them on the streets.

The local people of Beacon Hill consider their little piece of paradise to be tranquil, with affordable houses, and nearby the beautiful bushlands. Many locals love being so close to the Northern Beaches, which gives them quick access to go and relax after a hard day of work.

My hometown, Van Wert County, does not run into many substantial problems that it is forced to deal with. The town of roughly 28,000 people is relatively quiet for the most part and is a peaceful place to live. Currently though, Van Wert cannot hold their July 4th fireworks display at the airport like in the past because the airport is not permitted to hold them there anymore. To help with this issue, there are three alternative solutions. These include asking permission of the county park to run the display, simply not having the display at all forcing the citizens to travel to a neighboring county, or moving the display to the Van Wert local school. Moving the display to Van Wert Local School would be the best solution
In 1908, during his second term as President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt appointed the Superintendent of the Olyphant School District, Prof. Michael J. Cummings, to be a representative of the National Civic Federation (NCF) for a visit to the British Isles. The NCF was an organization whose mission was to promote an understanding between big business and labor unions in order to avoid costly labor strikes. The purpose of the visit was to obtain a firsthand account of the British school system, especially how it related to child labor. Prof. Frank J. McGuigan, principal of the business department of Pittston High School; and Prof. C. F. Hoban, Superintendent of Dunmore Schools, were also members of this team. Many of the other members were from Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. The team left on October 17, and returned in November.
Sydenham, one of Sydney’s Inner-West suburbs, is within 8 kilometres of the CBD and only a five-minute walk to Marrickville when you want to work or play outside the suburb. Sydenham has its own cafes, restaurants, train hub, bus routes, parks, pubs, and clothing shops. Most of the homes in Sydenham are desirable to investors because of their untapped potential for renovation. For most residents of the suburb, this is more than just a place to live. Sydenham is a community of good people and an unspoiled gem of the Inner West region where you can live near to the city without the hefty costs of living in the city.
On Monday,October 14, 2013 at 7:00 P.M., I attended the Bradford Area School District school board meeting at Floyd C. Fretz Middle School in the large group instruction room. This meeting was important for the teachers, students, and the schools in the district. It provided information that correlated to the material in class and a perspective on what situations as a future teacher I may experience.
