Atlantis Reflection

Image Credit: NASA, – Bill Ingalls

Explanation: Space shuttle orbiter Atlantis left planet Earth on Friday, July 8, embarking on the STS-135 mission to the International Space Station. The momentous launch was the final one in NASA’s 30 year space shuttle program that began with the launch of the first reusable spacecraft on April 12, 1981. In this reflective prelaunch image from July 7, Atlantis stands in a familiar spot on the Kennedy Space Center’s pad 39A, after an early evening roll back of the pad’s Rotating Service Structure. The historic orbital voyages of Atlantis have included a Hubble Space Telescope servicing mission, deployment of Magellan, Galileo, and the Compton Gamma-ray Observatory, and seven trips to the Russian space station Mir. Scheduled to dock once again with the International Space Station on Sunday, Atlantis has now made its 33rd and final trip to orbit.

Shuttle Atlantis Reentry Streak From Orbit

Explanation: What’s that strange bright streak? It is the last image ever of a space shuttle from orbit. A week and a half ago, after decoupling from the International Space Station, the Space Shuttle Atlantis fired its rockets for the last time, lost its orbital speed, and plummeted back to Earth. Within the next hour, however, the sophisticated space machine dropped its landing gear and did what used to be unprecedented — landed like an airplane on a runway. Although the future of human space flight from the USA will enter a temporary lull, many robotic spacecraft continue to explore our Solar System and peer into our universe, including Cassini, Chandra, Chang’e 2, Dawn, Fermi, Hubble, Kepler, LRO, Mars Express, Messenger, MRO, New Horizons, Opportunity, Planck, Rosetta, SDO, SOHO, Spitzer, STEREO, Swift, Venus-Express, and WISE.

The Fox Fur Nebula

Out2News.com

Image Credit & Copyright: John Vermette

Explanation: This interstellar canine is formed of cosmic dust and gas interacting with the energetic light and winds from hot young stars. The shape, visual texture, and color, combine to give the region the popular name Fox Fur Nebula. The characteristic blue glow on the left is dust reflecting light from the bright star S Mon, the bright star just below the top edge of the featured image. Textured red and black areas are a combination of the cosmic dust and reddish emission from ionized hydrogen gas. S Mon is part of a young open cluster of stars, NGC 2264, located about 2,500 light years away toward the constellation of the Unicorn (Monoceros).

FAU’s Center for Body, Mind and Culture Presents

‘Bodies of Care: Somaesthetics of Vulnerability’

Out2martincounty.com

BOCA RATON, Fla. (January 20, 2016) The Center for Body, Mind and Culture in Florida Atlantic University’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters is hosting an international conference titled “Bodies of Care: Somaesthetics of Vulnerability” on Thursday, Jan. 28 and Friday, Jan. 29 in the Arts and Humanities Building, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus. There is fee to register, however, advanced registration is advised.

The conference will examine the wide range of somatic conditions that require care and the variety of somatic methods of providing such care, while exploring how these conditions and methods are represented in cultural theory, health and wellness studies, literature, and the arts. Conference presenters and discussants include distinguished scholars from Brazil, China, Denmark, England, Germany and India, as well as American universities such as the University of Virginia.

“We are very pleased to organize this important international and transdisciplinary conference that explores the somaesthetic dimensions of care,” said Richard Shusterman, Ph.D., Dorothy F. Schmidt Eminent Scholar in the Humanities and director of the Center for Body, Mind, and Culture. “Bodies need and give care in many ways and for many reasons: to overcome illness and disability, to address and alleviate dependence, to learn new skills and remedy bad habits, to inspire greater confidence for personal flourishing and greater social betterment.”

This is the 11th international conference of the Center for Body, Mind, and Culture since its founding in 2007.

ADHD Rising Among US Kids

Out2News.com

According to researchers, an estimated twelve percent of kids in the United States between five and seventeen years old have been diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a 43% increase over data collected in 2003. Historically, ADHD has been more prominently diagnosed among boys; however, this new report finds large increases among girls and Hispanic children over the past decade.

Martin Youth LEADERship Goes Into the Wild!

Out2News.com

Stuart — Tuesday students and mentors with the Martin Youth LEADERship (MYL) Program held their fifth session of the 2015-2016 school year.

Our host for this month’s event was Tom Kenny and the Caulking Water Farm.

In August 2013, SFWMD approved the Water Farming Pilot Project known as “Caulkins”, located in Indiantown, Florida, a public/private partnership with Caulkins Citrus Company. The Caulkins property is uniquely located adjacent to C-44, below the Okeechobee locks, but above the S-80 discharge facility.

Since becoming operational in February 2014, this project has stored 20,000 acre-feet (and acre foot is 327,000 gallons), or 6.5 billion gallons, of water taken from the C-44 canal across its 413 acre footprint, removing this water and its pollutants, Nitrogen and Phosphorus, from the basin and reducing discharges to the St. Lucie Estuary and Indian River Lagoon.

Water Farming is an alternative water storage method. The “Caulkins” pilot program has proven to be a highly efficient, cost effective method of collecting, storing and “farming” water through transvaporation, percolation and evaporation. It is an alternative water storage facility that adds to, and supplements, other existing and proposed water retention, storage and diversion projects designed to reduce destructive discharges from Lake Okeechobee and local drainage.

The Caulkins Water Farm proposes to expand its existing 413 acre “pilot project”, already operating successfully on a portion of the fallow citrus groves that comprised Caulkins Citrus Company, to its entire 3300 acres. This expansion will create a large, shallow water storage facility, capable of receiving water diverted from the C-44 reducing the need to discharge, or waste the water to tide. Based on scientific monitoring, it can be estimated that approximately 70-80,000 ac-ft of water could be “harvested” from the C-44 and treated and captured within the 3000 acres available for expansion of the pilot.

The St. Lucie River Watershed Protection Plan estimated that 200,000 ac-ft of storage are needed within the basin to reduce discharge events by 90% annually. An expanded “Caulkins” satisfies almost 50% of that need.

In 2015 Army Corps of Engineers releases from Lake Okeechobee averaged 300 million gallons per day. An expanded Caulkins Water Farm could receive 100 million gallons per day, even when “full.” Because of evaporation and percolation, the water in the water farm recedes a tenth of a foot per day. That means Caulkins could reduce those damaging discharges by 30 percent. Every day.

The expansion of the Caulkins Water Farm will require twelve months of construction. This compares with multi-year or decade long lead times for construction of public projects.As part of a Public-Private Partnership, Caulkins proposes to finance the entirety of the construction budget. Caulkins proposes that SFWMD enter into a ten year “Payment for Environmental Services” (PES) contract with Caulkins.

The Martin Youth LEADERship Program is for high school students, and is in its 13th year.

The group is continually striving to better serve the students that have made application, and been accepted in the program.

The current Martin Youth LEADERship program is an opportunity for high school sophomores and juniors throughout Martin County to develop and enhance their leadership skills

Students must apply, and, on average, 37 are selected to participate in this comprehensive nine-month program that is modeled after LEADERship Martin County.

Upon completion, these Leaders have learned about their community including history, government, business, arts and culture, criminal justice and the environment.

Class members are given a rare opportunity to reach their highest leadership potential through sessions focusing on Covey’s Effective Habits and other leadership enhancing activities.

Every effort is made to select a racially, gender diverse class representing various levels of leadership experience.

Art Reflection By Mimi McCallum

Out2martincounty.com

Through my art I aspire to capture moments in time that relate to memories that touch our hearts. I aspire to create images of objects, places and figures with pleasing shapes and energetic color.

My “people stories” are paintings including figure in them. This is a subject I enjoy painting. My people are All People and an experience we can share. The “At the Beach” series provides glimpses of sensual and relaxing times that are the beach. The beach offers a refuge from the routine and mundane. The figures enjoy the warm sun, the wind blowing their hair, umbrellas, towels, sand in their toes and the beauty of the ocean.

S.P.A.M. Robotics Hosts Second “FIRST®” LEGO League Tournament

Out2News.com

STUART — S.P.A.M. Robotics held its second annual “FIRST®” LEGO League (FLL) tournament on Saturday at South Fork High School gymnasium.

Two tournaments ran side-by-side with 10 teams in one division and 12 teams in the other division. Winners from both divisions will qualify to advance to regional play.

FLL teams are made up of students in grades 4 through 8 who will come from throughout South Florida as well as from the Martin County School District elementary and middle schools.

In early fall, FLL released a Challenge which is based on a real-world scientific topic. This year’s challenge, World Class—Learning Unleashed, will redesign how we gather knowledge and skills in the 21st century. Teams will teach adults about the ways that kids need and want to learn.

Each Challenge has three parts: the Robot Game, the Project, and the FLL Core Values. Teams of up to ten children, with at least one adult coach, participate in the Challenge by programming an autonomous robot to score points on a themed playing field (Robot Game), developing a solution to a problem they have identified (Project), all guided by the FLL Core Values.

In the FLL WORLD CLASSS Project, each team was asked to:

 

  • Choose a topic that they are passionate about or always wanted to learn.
  • Create an innovative solution that improves the learning experience.
  • Share their solution with others.

 

For more information about this year’s Challenge, see www.usfirst.org.

The Education Foundation of Martin County was instrumental in providing each elementary and middle school in the Martin County School District with the resources to sponsor a team. Three of the local schools competed last week in the “Burning for Learning” FLL qualifying tournament, also sponsored by S.P.A.M. Robotics.

S.P.A.M. Robotics is comprised of students from Jensen Beach High School, Martin County High School, South Fork High School, Clark Advanced Learning Center and home schools. Each year the team designs, builds and programs a fully functional robot to compete in an athletic style event. Competitions are organized by FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), a non-profit organization created by inventor Dean Kaman to motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills. You can learn more about S.P.A.M. at their website, www.spamrobotics.com.

Teams of up to ten children, with at least one adult coach, participate in the Challenge by programming an autonomous robot to score points on a themed playing field (Robot Game), developing a solution to a problem they have identified (Project), all guided by the FLL Core Values.

In the FLL WORLD CLASSS Project, each team was asked to:

  • Choose a topic that they are passionate about or always wanted to learn.
  • Create an innovative solution that improves the learning experience.
  • Share their solution with others.

For more information about this year’s Challenge, see www.usfirst.org.

The Education Foundation of Martin County was instrumental in providing each elementary and middle school in the Martin County School District with the resources to sponsor a team. Three of the local schools competed last week in the “Burning for Learning” FLL qualifying tournament, also sponsored by S.P.A.M. Robotics.

S.P.A.M. Robotics is comprised of students from Jensen Beach High School, Martin County High School, South Fork High School, Clark Advanced Learning Center and home schools. Each year the team designs, builds and programs a fully functional robot to compete in an athletic style event. Competitions are organized by FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), a non-profit organization created by inventor Dean Kaman to motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills.

Dr. Bruce Health Update

Quick Exercise Breaks in the Classroom?

 

Out2News.com

Researchers are working on ways to redesign classrooms and develop a curriculum that would allow two-minute exercise breaks throughout the day. Initial findings suggest that incorporating low-, medium-, or high-intensity activity in the classroom will not only encourage kids to burn 100-300 more calories a day but it will also help them focus on their schoolwork, improving their academic performance.

Martin Youth LEADERship Gets Schooled in Martin County Law Enforcement!

Out2News.com

Stuart — Students and mentors with the Martin Youth LEADERship (MYL) Program held their fourth session of the 2015-2016 school year. This month’s event (Law Enforcement Day), began at the Martin County Courthouse where Youth Leadership participants were led into the courtroom of 19th Judicial Circuit Court Judge Elizabeth Metzger.

State’s Attorney’s office, public defender as well as a representative from The Court Clerk’s office all made presentations regarding “due process” of a defendant.

The entire program was coordinated by Martin County Sheriff’s Office Public Affairs Coordinator Trisha Kukuvka who then led the group to the Holt Detention center on Monterey Rd. where students were afforded the rare opportunity to tour the 911 dispatch center and observe a complete traffic stop, with the understanding that road patrol is the primary function of the Sheriff’s Office.

Following their visit to the dispatch center, students were presented with challenging exercises in tactical training. Students spent 90 minutes in the training facility to better understand policies regarding the use of weapons in video-enhanced training modules that are used in Deputy training. A complete discussion was by the K9 unit was made and students met 2 of the Sheriff’s Office dogs.

After a tour of the Holt Correctional Facility was provided, demonstrating that no one wants to be caught up in there for even one night.

The Martin Youth LEADERship Program is for high school students, and is in its 13th year. The group is continually striving to better serve the students that have made application, and been accepted in the program. The current Martin Youth LEADERship program is an opportunity for high school sophomores and juniors throughout Martin County to develop and enhance their leadership skills. Students must apply, and, on average, 37 are selected to participate in this comprehensive nine-month program that is modeled after LEADERship Martin County. Upon completion, these Leaders have learned about their community including history, government, business, arts and culture, criminal justice and the environment. Class members are given a rare opportunity to reach their highest leadership potential through sessions focusing on Covey’s Effective Habits and other leadership enhancing activities. Every effort is made to select a racially, gender diverse class representing various levels of leadership experience.

McGraw-Hill Education Shows How Small Data Trumps Big

Out2News.comIn any individual math classroom there may be an advanced student, a dyslexic student, and many other students with various levels of proficiency and confidence in the current module of math. How can you customize the educational experience of each of these students to enable the best outcome? McGraw-Hill Education says it believes that small data, which in this case is data generated by how students interact with the curriculum, is the answer.

Stephen Laster joined the company as chief digital officer a little over three years ago to drive its implementation of small data to improve educational outcomes. He’s someone who is passionate about education, and someone whose own educational experience was mixed.

“I am very, very dyslexic,” he said. “I was in grade school in the 60s and 70s, and it wasn’t until I reached 9th grade that I was diagnosed.” So although Laster has “a near-perfect visual memory,” nobody understood how he learned. Neither was the kind of digital educational experience that McGraw-Hill Education is now offering available.

“I’m super passionate about what we are doing,” he said. “This works for all kids of all kinds. It works for advanced students and lets them go at any rate they want. And it works for kids like me who see the world differently.”

How does the system do that, and how can it improve educational outcomes for all students? Here’s an overview.

When students engage in any course of study, Laster said, they are trying to understand something about a predefined area of knowledge, such as algebra or psychology. In each of these areas there is a set of predefined learning objectives for them to master. Maybe algebra has 400 of these learning objectives. If students become proficient in all 400 objectives, they will have a high level of assurance that they really know the topic, according to Laster.

But mastering each of these 400 objectives will take different forms for each student.

The McGraw-Hill Education system, through its many brands, including Aleks and LearnSmart, takes students through each of these objectives, and then gives them mini-assessments or quizzes along the way. These mini-assessments are designed to measure the student’s mastery of the objective. But the assessments also include questions about how confident the students are of the answers they give in those assessments.

“We instrument it by asking students their level of confidence,” Laster said. “We instrument it by understanding where the student is spending their time to acquire the learning. Then we feed this into a set of algorithms and artificial intelligence that helps redefine the map for that particular student and sets them on their way to learn the next most appropriate topic and learning objectives.”

The system not only directs a student to the next place to learn, but it also provides insights to the student’s teachers about which students may be having issues with what objectives.

“Imagine on a daily basis a teacher being able to walk into a classroom and understanding that these particular five students are having the same problem and just don’t get it,” he said. “I could pull them out for five to ten minutes of instruction to help clear up their problem. That’s the power of small data.”

In this case, the small data is information about how the student interacts with the curriculum, whether the student has mastered an objective, and how confident the student is about his or her mastery of the material. But small data can be applied to use-cases across many industries. For instance, a system that tracks inventory at a retail company and sends alerts when stock is low could be considered small data. It only becomes big data when you join it with hundreds of other data streams about marketing, customer preferences, social media sentiments, and more.

Small data is usually defined by the fact that it is not big data. Information is collected for a specific purpose, in this case to improve student outcomes and the curriculum. The information about the student does not include card swipes that track the student across the school campus. It does not include the student’s family history, medical records, or retail purchases. It does not include information about all the other websites the student has visited. It only includes data about the student’s interaction with the curriculum.

For the student, the process provides a clearer path to mastery.

“Imagine for the student who may have grown up with a fear of mathematics, really being guided to stay on a path of positive progression, so that math becomes not only achievable, but fun, and then that student actually turns into a confident learner,” he said.

Beyond that, those students’ paths through the curriculum are fed back into the system to drive further improvements into the curriculum.

“That’s the beauty of the closed loop,” Laster said. “Not only are we able to help evaluate and help students become confident learners. We are also able to get feedback on the learning moment … We have information at a learning-objective level about how things are working that we can use to make things better and more effective.”

However, Laster is quick to point out that the goal is to improve educational outcomes, not to put students in some dark room with a computer and no social experiences.

“Education is inherently social. But there aren’t enough master teachers to go around, and the model doesn’t scale.”

Laster came to McGraw-Hill Education to make this kind of closed-loop digital education system a reality after spending much of his career in eLearning and digital education. Before joining McGraw-Hill Education, he served as CIO and CTO of Harvard Business School and a member of the school’s administrative leadership team overseeing the school’s academic research and administrative computing teams.

He also established and led Intelligent Solutions, a consultancy that helps universities and businesses leverage their digital technology and collaborative tools. He has been a teacher at the undergraduate, graduate, and executive and professional level.

McGraw-Hill Education’s Business

A few months after Laster joined McGraw-Hill Education, the McGraw-Hill group of companies announced plans to sell the education division to private equity firm Apollo Global Management in a deal worth $2.4 billion when it was completed in March 2013. In September 2015 McGraw-Hill filed for an initial public offering to raise $100 million for general corporate purposes. Apollo will retain majority ownership of the company.

In its prospectus, McGraw-Hill Education said its two top competitors in the market are Houghton Mifflin and Pearson Plc. The prospectus also said that the company sells educational materials to 13,000 K-12 school districts. Digital learning has represented a growing share of the company’s revenues, according to the prospectus.

Digital’s “Overnight” Success

Efforts like the one Laster has been driving at McGraw-Hill Education are not new, the CDO told InformationWeek. These efforts have been underway at the company for many years. But the recent widespread access to computers at universities and even more recently in the kindergarten through 12th grade environments has made such closed-loop learning systems more practical for wide distribution.

“This is everywhere now. We have millions and millions of learners using this today at virtually every grade level.”

Laster said that the use of small data was a deliberate one by McGraw-Hill Education, in a world where many organizations, such as retailers, are choosing big data instead. Laster explained why small data is the right choice for education.

“Education is a purposeful journey against a domain of knowledge that you are trying to impart on the student,” he said. “We believe you should enter that domain with purposeful questions that drive outcomes.

“McGraw-Hill Education has a laser focus on outcomes,” Laster said. “We just want to collect the minimum amount of data to get the job done, and that’s why we like our approach.”

That further drives the McGraw-Hill Education mission.

“We have an obligation to give every child the education they need to make the most of themselves,” Laster said.

STUART, Fla. – Shaun Plymale of Chapman & Plymale, P.A. sponsored a presentation with the Martin County Sheriff’s Office at Hidden Oaks Middle School on Nov. 19.

“Online Safety and Cyberbullying” was presented by Detective Brian Broughton of the Martin County Sheriff’s Office Special Victim’s Unit. He walked parents through the many digital platforms used by youth, and discussed the legal ramifications that have arisen at local schools.

Detective Broughton also discussed several apps that can be used to hide photos, videos and other information on a smart phone.

“I’ve represented too many cases involving youth who have faced the legal consequences of bad choices made on social media,” said Plymale. “Parents need more information and tools on social media and technology to help their children stay safe online.”

More than 300 parents attended the presentations that we’re held at 6 p.m., 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. at the Hidden Oaks Middle School Media Center. Refreshments were served, and parents had the chance to win cash prizes.

Then it was off to jim Smith Tournament Boats, one of the areas most distinguished yacht builders since 1939. Jim built his first hydroplane boat in 1939. he built his first sport fishing boast in the late 40’s, which topped 50 mph, and by 1969 had developed the custom design that is still copied throughout the industry today.

Just before lunch a visit to one of the areas most respected financial institutions Harbor Community Bank. Sue Zachman, branch manger was the tour guide for this leg of the day. Leadership students were able to se the money vault as well as the safe deposit vault. A discussion regarding banking career opportunities, with questions and answers closing the extremely informative visit.

The students broke for lunch at the Clark Advanced Learning Center, immediately followed by a group activity titled “Economic Developer for a Day”.

Each group was presented with a scenario and criteria to determine the highest and best use of vacant commercial space and its impact on the local tax base.

Thank you to our mentors, Tim Dougher, Business Development Board of Martin County; Realtor Diane Bruton; Principal Architect Niki Norton, n2 Architecture and Design, and Chuck Gerardi, Economic Council. | Nov. 18, 2015

Treasure Coast Youth Symphony Performs Music For The Dance

Out2News.com

Stuart – John Enyart, Benjamin Enyart and Thomas Servinsky each conducted music associated historically with the Dance.

Dance is one of the most basic forms of expression humans use as a release of energy and exuberance. From the earliest composers to today’s pop music, dance is at the heart of most music. This program features major compositions with ethnic dances woven into the pieces.

From the Italian Tarantella, to the Hungarian Gypsy dance, to the Viennese waltz, to the formal ballet, “Dances” illustrates the passion and beauty of this art form.

The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony provides challenging experiences in orchestral and individual performance for student musicians to broaden technical skills and artistic expression, to instill professionalism, and to enhance enjoyment of their musical talents individually and for their audiences.

Members of the orchestra may choose to compete in the annual Concerto Competition. The winner of this competition has the privilege of performing his or her piece with the orchestra during the spring concert season.

Each year the orchestra awards scholarships and grants to several of its young musicians. The scholarships are used by orchestra members to continue music education during a summer music program, to enter a college level musical curriculum in the fall, to obtain private lessons from professionals, or to assist in the purchase of musical instruments.

During its 27-year history, the orchestra alumni have been selected for highly-competitive auditions to attend major conservatories and university programs. Students often opt to continue their music studies in college, in addition to other academic majors.

The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization and is composed of the most talented student musicians from Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and northern Palm Beach counties. The conductors of the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony are Dr. John Enyart, Ben Enyart and Thomas Servinsky. The orchestra is funded by performance proceeds, orchestra membership fees and private and corporate support.

Treasure Coast Youth Symphony Performs Music For The Dance

Out2News.com

Stuart – John Enyart, Benjamin Enyart and Thomas Servinsky each conducted music associated historically with the Dance.

Dance is one of the most basic forms of expression humans use as a release of energy and exuberance. From the earliest composers to today’s pop music, dance is at the heart of most music. This program features major compositions with ethnic dances woven into the pieces.

From the Italian Tarantella, to the Hungarian Gypsy dance, to the Viennese waltz, to the formal ballet, “Dances” illustrates the passion and beauty of this art form.

The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony provides challenging experiences in orchestral and individual performance for student musicians to broaden technical skills and artistic expression, to instill professionalism, and to enhance enjoyment of their musical talents individually and for their audiences.

Members of the orchestra may choose to compete in the annual Concerto Competition. The winner of this competition has the privilege of performing his or her piece with the orchestra during the spring concert season.

Each year the orchestra awards scholarships and grants to several of its young musicians. The scholarships are used by orchestra members to continue music education during a summer music program, to enter a college level musical curriculum in the fall, to obtain private lessons from professionals, or to assist in the purchase of musical instruments.

During its 27-year history, the orchestra alumni have been selected for highly-competitive auditions to attend major conservatories and university programs. Students often opt to continue their music studies in college, in addition to other academic majors.

The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization and is composed of the most talented student musicians from Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and northern Palm Beach counties. The conductors of the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony are Dr. John Enyart, Ben Enyart and Thomas Servinsky. The orchestra is funded by performance proceeds, orchestra membership fees and private and corporate support.

Neck and Shoulder Pain Common Among Teens with Migraines

 

Out2News.com

Surveys completed by 601 adolescents find neck pain and shoulder pain are common complaints for those who also live with migraine headaches, especially for those who deal with such headaches at a greater frequency. Teens who experience migraines less than once a week are 40% more likely to experience neck and shoulder pain, and those who suffer from migraines more than 15 days a month are 7.27 times more likely to have neck and shoulder pain than their peers who don’t have a history of migraines. Previous research has shown treatment aimed at restoring function in the neck and shoulders can reduce the severity and frequency of migraines.

Jamie Herd – Tesson From Martin County High School Martin County School

District2015/16 Teacher of the Year

Out2News.com

 

Stuart, FL – The Education Foundation of Martin County (EFMC) and the Martin County School District (MCSD) are proud to announce that Martin County High School 10th – 12th grade mathematics teacher Jamie Herd-Tesson has been named the District’s 2015-2016 Teacher of the Year.

The winner was announced during the Education Foundation of Martin County’s Teacher of the Year Awards Celebration on Friday, November 13, at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center. The event is presented by Infiniti Stuart and Audi Stuart.

Mrs. Herd-Tesson has 12 years of teaching experience all of which has taken place at Martin County High School. During her time at Martin County High School, she has had the opportunity to teach numerous math courses from Algebra 1 to Advanced Placement (AP) Calculus AB/BC. As the Advanced Placement Statistics teacher, she was selected to be an AP Grader and for the past two years, Mrs. Herd-Tesson has been the Advanced Placement Team Leader. In this capacity, she is responsible for leading the Advanced Placement Collaborative Team, the AP Mentoring Program, the AP Student Ambassador Program, the AP Parent Advisory Council, and organizing the AP Award Night event. She also mentors both teachers and students through different mentoring programs within the school. Amazingly, Mrs. Herd-Tesson is also the coach of the famed MCHS Tigerettes. This high caliber, award-winning, competitive dance team has earned national acclaim and performed at such venues as the Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, the

Orange Bowl in Miami and at Disney under the tutelage and leadership of Mrs. Herd-Tesson. She is also a graduate of Martin County High School.

This Teacher of the Year also serves as an active member of the First United Methodist Church where she volunteers each year at Vacation Bible School. She is a mentor for the Take Stock in Children program and she volunteers at local events such as the Kiwanis Community Park Build, Downtown Tree Lighting Program and the Mental Health Awareness Walk.

In her application for the Teacher of the Year award, Mrs. Herd-Tesson wrote, “Change is here! Today, we are facing a great opportunity to make the needed adjustments in education to prepare students for a successful future in a highly competitive society. Now is the time for all students, parents, teachers, administrators, and politicians to work together to improve the quality of education that our students are receiving. Everyone must come together to determine the strengths of our current education system and then devise a plan to improve its weaknesses. Students must be prepared with the skills to allow them to work towards the future that they have chosen, and it is our job as educators to make sure that they are ready to face these challenges in an ever-changing global community. Change is not our enemy but our opportunity for greatness.”

Mario Murgado, President/CEO of Infiniti Stuart and Audi Stuart, said, “It is with great pleasure that Infiniti & Audi Stuart once again support The Education Foundation of Martin County – Teacher of the Year Celebration. It is not an easy job to select a winner, because you are all winners; you are winners every day you walk into a class room and teach. Thank you for the gift of your vocation and inspiring the children of Martin County. Once again, we are proud to be intricate partners with the Martin County Teacher of the Year Celebration and we extend our sincere and heartfelt congratulations to Mrs. Herd-Tesson. ”

David Bates, president of the EFMC, said of the winner, “Our schools are one of the greatest resources in Martin County and a primary reason many of us moved here. We are thankful for the dedication and professionalism of the teachers who have made this school district one of the best in the State of Florida. Mrs. Herd-Tesson is a shining example of our best here in Martin County. We wish her all the best as she represents Martin County in the running for Florida Teacher of the Year.”

Martin County School District Superintendent Laurie Gaylord said, “Jamie Herd-Tesson is the epitome of what all educators need to be. She has shown the kind of skill, passion and dedication that exemplify the very best of the most important, most demanding and most rewarding profession there is: teaching.”

Martin County High School principal Albert Fabrizio wrote in his recommendation of Mrs. Herd-Tesson as Teacher of the Year, “She brings to life our foundational principal of helping each one of our students across his or her own individual finish line by the myriad of contributions that she makes through building the capacity of our students and faculty. In the classroom, you will observe Jamie using the most cutting-edge instructional strategies that have the greatest impact on student achievement. Her goal is always that of putting her students first while making them both college and career ready. She is an exceptional role model for our students at Martin County and one that many, I am sure, would like to emulate.”

Mrs. Herd-Tesson will now represent the Martin County School District in the competition to become the Florida Department of Education’s Teacher of the Year.

In addition to honoring the District’s 2015-16 Teacher of the Year, winners were named in the categories of Elementary, Middle, and High School Teachers of the Year:

Elementary School Teacher of the Year – sponsored by Publix Super Markets Charities

Melissa Fischer-Rasmussen, Port Salerno Elementary, Third Grade Teacher

Mrs. Fischer-Rasmussen has been teaching for nine years, and has served Port Salerno Elementary for the last six years as an outstanding teacher in K-2 and now grade 3. In addition to her teaching responsibilities, Mrs. Fischer-Rasmussen serves in a leadership capacity in the areas of parent training, technology integration with laptop carts, teacher mentoring, grant writing, data-driven instruction and Balanced Literacy. She has also served as the vice president of Port Salerno’s PTO furthering her deep commitment to teacher-parent relationships.

Mrs. Fischer-Rasmussen wrote in her Teacher of the Year application, “As educators, we must commit to teaching. We must commit to literacy and all components wrapped tightly together. We must commit to mathematics because there is no new or old way, but infinite ways used to turn on the hypothetical light bulb. We must commit to dirty and splashy science, but really, the science that makes eyes go wildly big and uncontainable voices go, ‘Oooh…aaaah!’ We must commit to learning and growing. As everything changes so quickly around us, we must commit to concepts of lifelong learning – reflecting on successes and failures. True reflection is the ultimate reminder that we are all human beings capable of incredible miracles.”

Middle School Teacher of the Year – sponsored by The Education Foundation of Martin County

Julie Anne Carreiro, Hidden Oaks Middle School, 6th – 8th Grade Exceptional Student Education Teacher

Ms. Carreiro began teaching in Florida 16 years ago and has been the 6th – 8th Grade Exceptional Student Education Teacher at Hidden Oaks Middle School for the past seven years. In addition to her teaching responsibilities, Ms. Carreiro coaches volleyball and girls basketball. She also writes the school sports news, organizes the annual all sports banquet and runs the concession stand when she is not actively coaching a game.

In her Teacher of the Year application, Ms. Carreiro wrote, “Every child, regardless of disability, has the potential to learn, be successful, and value themselves. It is the responsibility of teachers to set the bar high and be the means for students to not only reach the bar but to climb over it and excel. As a teacher of students with exceptionalities, who are often not only ESE, but economically disadvantaged, from a minority group, and the product of unstable home environments, I am often faced with the challenge of rebuilding students into what they can become on their way to adulthood. Reaching them makes me a better mother, a better friend, a better educator, a better person. Teaching my students and helping others teach similar students can make the future a better place. My message is quite simply, every student can learn, every student is worth it.”

Today, we are facing a great opportunity to make the needed adjustments in education to prepare students for a successful future in a highly competitive society. Now is the time for all students, parents, teachers, administrators, and politicians to work together to improve the quality of education that our students are receiving. Everyone must come together to determine the strengths of our current education system and then devise a plan to improve its weaknesses. Students must be prepared with the skills to allow them to work towards the future that they have chosen, and it is our job as educators to make sure that they are ready to face these challenges in an ever-changing global community. Change is not our enemy but our opportunity for greatness.”

Mario Murgado, President/CEO of Infiniti Stuart and Audi Stuart, said, “It is with great pleasure that Infiniti & Audi Stuart once again support The Education Foundation of Martin County – Teacher of the Year Celebration. It is not an easy job to select a winner, because you are all winners; you are winners every day you walk into a class room and teach. Thank you for the gift of your vocation and inspiring the children of Martin County. Once again, we are proud to be intricate partners with the Martin County Teacher of the Year Celebration and we extend our sincere and heartfelt congratulations to Mrs. Herd-Tesson. ”

David Bates, president of the EFMC, said of the winner, “Our schools are one of the greatest resources in Martin County and a primary reason many of us moved here. We are thankful for the dedication and professionalism of the teachers who have made this school district one of the best in the State of Florida. Mrs. Herd-Tesson is a shining example of our best here in Martin County. We wish her all the best as she represents Martin County in the running for Florida Teacher of the Year.”

Martin County School District Superintendent Laurie Gaylord said, “Jamie Herd-Tesson is the epitome of what all educators need to be. She has shown the kind of skill, passion and dedication that exemplify the very best of the most important, most demanding and most rewarding profession there is: teaching.”

Martin County High School principal Albert Fabrizio wrote in his recommendation of Mrs. Herd-Tesson as Teacher of the Year, “She brings to life our foundational principal of helping each one of our students across his or her own individual finish line by the myriad of contributions that she makes through building the capacity of our students and faculty. In the classroom, you will observe Jamie using the most cutting-edge instructional strategies that have the greatest impact on student achievement. Her goal is always that of putting her students first while making them both college and career ready. She is an exceptional role model for our students at Martin County and one that many, I am sure, would like to emulate.”

Mrs. Herd-Tesson will now represent the Martin County School District in the competition to become the Florida Department of Education’s Teacher of the Year.

In addition to honoring the District’s 2015-16 Teacher of the Year, winners were named in the categories of Elementary, Middle, and High School Teachers of the Year:

Melissa Fischer-Rasmussen, Port Salerno Elementary, Third Grade Teacher

Mrs. Fischer-Rasmussen has been teaching for nine years, and has served Port Salerno Elementary for the last six years as an outstanding teacher in K-2 and now grade 3. In addition to her teaching responsibilities, Mrs. Fischer-Rasmussen serves in a leadership capacity in the areas of parent training, technology integration with laptop carts, teacher mentoring, grant writing, data-driven instruction and Balanced Literacy. She has also served as the vice president of Port Salerno’s PTO furthering her deep commitment to teacher-parent relationships.

Mrs. Fischer-Rasmussen wrote in her Teacher of the Year application, “As educators, we must commit to teaching. We must commit to literacy and all components wrapped tightly together. We must commit to mathematics because there is no new or old way, but infinite ways used to turn on the hypothetical light bulb. We must commit to dirty and splashy science, but really, the science that makes eyes go wildly big and uncontainable voices go, ‘Oooh…aaaah!’ We must commit to learning and growing. As everything changes so quickly around us, we must commit to concepts of lifelong learning – reflecting on successes and failures. True reflection is the ultimate reminder that we are all human beings capable of incredible miracles.”

Ms. Carreiro began teaching in Florida 16 years ago and has been the 6th – 8th Grade Exceptional Student Education Teacher at Hidden Oaks Middle School for the past seven years.

In her Teacher of the Year application, Ms. Carreiro wrote, “Every child, regardless of disability, has the potential to learn, be successful, and value themselves. It is the responsibility of teachers to set the bar high and be the means for students to not only reach the bar but to climb over it and excel. As a teacher of students with exceptionalities, who are often not only ESE, but economically disadvantaged, from a minority group, and the product of unstable home environments, I am often faced with the challenge of rebuilding students into what they can become on their way to adulthood. Reaching them makes me a better mother, a better friend, a better educator, a better person. Teaching my students and helping others teach similar students can make the future a better place. My message is quite simply, every student can learn, every student is worth it.”

As a teacher of students with exceptionalities, who are often not only ESE, but economically disadvantaged, from a minority group, and the product of unstable home environments, I am often faced with the challenge of rebuilding students into what they can become on their way to adulthood. Reaching them makes me a better mother, a better friend, a better educator, a better person. Teaching my students and helping others teach similar students can make the future a better place. My message is quite simply, every student can learn, every student is worth it.”

Orange Bowl in Miami and at Disney under the tutelage and leadership of Mrs. Herd-Tesson. She is also a graduate of Martin County High School.

This Teacher of the Year also serves as an active member of the First United Methodist Church where she volunteers each year at Vacation Bible School.

In her application for the Teacher of the Year award, Mrs. Herd-Tesson wrote, “Change is here! Today, we are facing a great opportunity to make the needed adjustments in education to prepare students for a successful future in a highly competitive society. Now is the time for all students, parents, teachers, administrators, and politicians to work together to improve the quality of education that our students are receiving. Everyone must come together to determine the strengths of our current education system and then devise a plan to improve its weaknesses. Students must be prepared with the skills to allow them to work towards the future that they have chosen, and it is our job as educators to make sure that they are ready to face these challenges in an ever-changing global community. Change is not our enemy but our opportunity for greatness.”

Mario Murgado, President/CEO of Infiniti Stuart and Audi Stuart, said, “It is with great pleasure that Infiniti & Audi Stuart once again support The Education Foundation of Martin County – Teacher of the Year Celebration. It is not an easy job to select a winner, because you are all winners; you are winners every day you walk into a class room and teach. Thank you for the gift of your vocation and inspiring the children of Martin County. Once again, we are proud to be intricate partners with the Martin County Teacher of the Year Celebration and we extend our sincere and heartfelt congratulations to Mrs. Herd-Tesson. ”

David Bates, president of the EFMC, said of the winner, “Our schools are one of the greatest resources in Martin County and a primary reason many of us moved here. We are thankful for the dedication and professionalism of the teachers who have made this school district one of the best in the State of Florida. Mrs. Herd-Tesson is a shining example of our best here in Martin County. We wish her all the best as she represents Martin County in the running for Florida Teacher of the Year.”

Martin County School District Superintendent Laurie Gaylord said, “Jamie Herd-Tesson is the epitome of what all educators need to be. She has shown the kind of skill, passion and dedication that exemplify the very best of the most important, most demanding and most rewarding profession there is: teaching.”

Martin County High School principal Albert Fabrizio wrote in his recommendation of Mrs. Herd-Tesson as Teacher of the Year, “She brings to life our foundational principal of helping each one of our students across his or her own individual finish line by the myriad of contributions that she makes through building the capacity of our students and faculty. In the classroom, you will observe Jamie using the most cutting-edge instructional strategies that have the greatest impact on student achievement. Her goal is always that of putting her students first while making them both college and career ready. She is an exceptional role model for our students at Martin County and one that many, I am sure, would like to emulate.”

Mrs. Herd-Tesson will now represent the Martin County School District in the competition to become the Florida Department of Education’s Teacher of the Year.

In addition to honoring the District’s 2015-16 Teacher of the Year, winners were named in the categories of Elementary, Middle, and High School Teachers of the Year:

Mrs. Fischer-Rasmussen wrote in her Teacher of the Year application, “As educators, we must commit to teaching. We must commit to literacy and all components wrapped tightly together. We must commit to mathematics because there is no new or old way, but infinite ways used to turn on the hypothetical light bulb. We must commit to dirty and splashy science, but really, the science that makes eyes go wildly big and uncontainable voices go, ‘Oooh…aaaah!’ We must commit to learning and growing.

It is the responsibility of teachers to set the bar high and be the means for students to not only reach the bar but to climb over it and excel. As a teacher of students with exceptionalities, who are often not only ESE, but economically disadvantaged, from a minority group, and the product of unstable home environments, I am often faced with the challenge of rebuilding students into what they can become on their way to adulthood. Reaching them makes me a better mother, a better friend, a better educator, a better person. Teaching my students and helping others teach similar students can make the future a better place. My message is quite simply, every student can learn, every student is worth it.”

Today, we are facing a great opportunity to make the needed adjustments in education to prepare students for a successful future in a highly competitive society. Now is the time for all students, parents, teachers, administrators, and politicians to work together to improve the quality of education that our students are receiving. Everyone must come together to determine the strengths of our current education system and then devise a plan to improve its weaknesses. Students must be prepared with the skills to allow them to work towards the future that they have chosen, and it is our job as educators to make sure that they are ready to face these challenges in an ever-changing global community. Change is not our enemy but our opportunity for greatness.”

Mario Murgado, President/CEO of Infiniti Stuart and Audi Stuart, said, “It is with great pleasure that Infiniti & Audi Stuart once again support The Education Foundation of Martin County – Teacher of the Year Celebration.

Thank you for the gift of your vocation and inspiring the children of Martin County. Once again, we are proud to be intricate partners with the Martin County Teacher of the Year Celebration and we extend our sincere and heartfelt congratulations to Mrs. Herd-Tesson. ”

David Bates, president of the EFMC, said of the winner, “Our schools are one of the greatest resources in Martin County and a primary reason many of us moved here. We are thankful for the dedication and professionalism of the teachers who have made this school district one of the best in the State of Florida. Mrs. Herd-Tesson is a shining example of our best here in Martin County. We wish her all the best as she represents Martin County in the running for Florida Teacher of the Year.”

Martin County School District Superintendent Laurie Gaylord said, “Jamie Herd-Tesson is the epitome of what all educators need to be. She has shown the kind of skill, passion and dedication that exemplify the very best of the most important, most demanding and most rewarding profession there is: teaching.”

Martin County High School principal Albert Fabrizio wrote in his recommendation of Mrs. Herd-Tesson as Teacher of the Year, “She brings to life our foundational principal of helping each one of our students across his or her own individual finish line by the myriad of contributions that she makes through building the capacity of our students and faculty. In the classroom, you will observe Jamie using the most cutting-edge instructional strategies that have the greatest impact on student achievement. Her goal is always that of putting her students first while making them both college and career ready. She is an exceptional role model for our students at Martin County and one that many, I am sure, would like to emulate.”

Mrs. Herd-Tesson will now represent the Martin County School District in the competition to become the Florida Department of Education’s Teacher of the Year.

In addition to honoring the District’s 2015-16 Teacher of the Year, winners were named in the categories of Elementary, Middle, and High School Teachers of the Year:

Mrs. Fischer-Rasmussen wrote in her Teacher of the Year application, “As educators, we must commit to teaching. We must commit to literacy and all components wrapped tightly together. We must commit to mathematics because there is no new or old way, but infinite ways used to turn on the hypothetical light bulb. We must commit to dirty and splashy science, but really, the science that makes eyes go wildly big and uncontainable voices go, ‘Oooh…aaaah!’ We must commit to learning and growing. As everything changes so quickly around us, we must commit to concepts of lifelong learning – reflecting on successes and failures.

It is the responsibility of teachers to set the bar high and be the means for students to not only reach the bar but to climb over it and excel. As a teacher of students with exceptionalities, who are often not only ESE, but economically disadvantaged, from a minority group, and the product of unstable home environments, I am often faced with the challenge of rebuilding students into what they can become on their way to adulthood. Reaching them makes me a better mother, a better friend, a better educator, a better person. Teaching my students and helping others teach similar students can make the future a better place. My message is quite simply, every student can learn, every student is worth it.”

Today, we are facing a great opportunity to make the needed adjustments in education to prepare students for a successful future in a highly competitive society. Now is the time for all students, parents, teachers, administrators, and politicians to work together to improve the quality of education that our students are receiving. Everyone must come together to determine the strengths of our current education system and then devise a plan to improve its weaknesses. Students must be prepared with the skills to allow them to work towards the future that they have chosen, and it is our job as educators to make sure that they are ready to face these challenges in an ever-changing global community. Change is not our enemy but our opportunity for greatness.”

Mario Murgado, President/CEO of Infiniti Stuart and Audi Stuart, said, “It is with great pleasure that Infiniti & Audi Stuart once again support The Education Foundation of Martin County – Teacher of the Year Celebration.

We are thankful for the dedication and professionalism of the teachers who have made this school district one of the best in the State of Florida. Mrs. Herd-Tesson is a shining example of our best here in Martin County. We wish her all the best as she represents Martin County in the running for Florida Teacher of the Year.”

Martin County School District Superintendent Laurie Gaylord said, “Jamie Herd-Tesson is the epitome of what all educators need to be. She has shown the kind of skill, passion and dedication that exemplify the very best of the most important, most demanding and most rewarding profession there is: teaching.”

Martin County High School principal Albert Fabrizio wrote in his recommendation of Mrs. Herd-Tesson as Teacher of the Year, “She brings to life our foundational principal of helping each one of our students across his or her own individual finish line by the myriad of contributions that she makes through building the capacity of our students and faculty. In the classroom, you will observe Jamie using the most cutting-edge instructional strategies that have the greatest impact on student achievement. Her goal is always that of putting her students first while making them both college and career ready. She is an exceptional role model for our students at Martin County and one that many, I am sure, would like to emulate.”

Mrs. Herd-Tesson will now represent the Martin County School District in the competition to become the Florida Department of Education’s Teacher of the Year.

In addition to honoring the District’s 2015-16 Teacher of the Year, winners were named in the categories of Elementary, Middle, and High School Teachers of the Year:

Mrs. Fischer-Rasmussen wrote in her Teacher of the Year application, “As educators, we must commit to teaching. We must commit to literacy and all components wrapped tightly together. We must commit to mathematics because there is no new or old way, but infinite ways used to turn on the hypothetical light bulb. We must commit to dirty and splashy science, but really, the science that makes eyes go wildly big and uncontainable voices go, ‘Oooh…aaaah!’ We must commit to learning and growing. As everything changes so quickly around us, we must commit to concepts of lifelong learning – reflecting on successes and failures.

It is the responsibility of teachers to set the bar high and be the means for students to not only reach the bar but to climb over it and excel. As a teacher of students with exceptionalities, who are often not only ESE, but economically disadvantaged, from a minority group, and the product of unstable home environments, I am often faced with the challenge of rebuilding students into what they can become on their way to adulthood. Reaching them makes me a better mother, a better friend, a better educator, a better person. Teaching my students and helping others teach similar students can make the future a better place. My message is quite simply, every student can learn, every student is worth it.”

Today, we are facing a great opportunity to make the needed adjustments in education to prepare students for a successful future in a highly competitive society. Now is the time for all students, parents, teachers, administrators, and politicians to work together to improve the quality of education that our students are receiving. Everyone must come together to determine the strengths of our current education system and then devise a plan to improve its weaknesses. Students must be prepared with the skills to allow them to work towards the future that they have chosen, and it is our job as educators to make sure that they are ready to face these challenges in an ever-changing global community. Change is not our enemy but our opportunity for greatness.”

Mario Murgado, President/CEO of Infiniti Stuart and Audi Stuart, said, “It is with great pleasure that Infiniti & Audi Stuart once again support The Education Foundation of Martin County – Teacher of the Year Celebration. It is not an easy job to select a winner, because you are all winners; you are winners every day you walk into a class room and teach. Thank you for the gift of your vocation and inspiring the children of Martin County. Once again, we are proud to be intricate partners with the Martin County Teacher of the Year Celebration and we extend our sincere and heartfelt congratulations to Mrs. Herd-Tesson. ”

David Bates, president of the EFMC, said of the winner, “Our schools are one of the greatest resources in Martin County and a primary reason many of us moved here. We are thankful for the dedication and professionalism of the teachers who have made this school district one of the best in the State of Florida. Mrs. Herd-Tesson is a shining example of our best here in Martin County. We wish her all the best as she represents Martin County in the running for Florida Teacher of the Year.”

Martin County School District Superintendent Laurie Gaylord said, “Jamie Herd-Tesson is the epitome of what all educators need to be. She has shown the kind of skill, passion and dedication that exemplify the very best of the most important, most demanding and most rewarding profession there is: teaching.”

Martin County High School principal Albert Fabrizio wrote in his recommendation of Mrs. Herd-Tesson as Teacher of the Year, “She brings to life our foundational principal of helping each one of our students across his or her own individual finish line by the myriad of contributions that she makes through building the capacity of our students and faculty. In the classroom, you will observe Jamie using the most cutting-edge instructional strategies that have the greatest impact on student achievement. Her goal is always that of putting her students first while making them both college and career ready. She is an exceptional role model for our students at Martin County and one that many, I am sure, would like to emulate.”

Mrs. Herd-Tesson will now represent the Martin County School District in the competition to become the Florida Department of Education’s Teacher of the Year.

In addition to honoring the District’s 2015-16 Teacher of the Year, winners were named in the categories of Elementary, Middle, and High School Teachers of the Year:

Melissa Fischer-Rasmussen, Port Salerno Elementary, Third Grade Teacher

Mrs. Fischer-Rasmussen has been teaching for nine years, and has served Port Salerno Elementary for the last six years as an outstanding teacher in K-2 and now grade 3.

Mrs. Fischer-Rasmussen wrote in her Teacher of the Year application, “As educators, we must commit to teaching. We must commit to literacy and all components wrapped tightly together. We must commit to mathematics because there is no new or old way, but infinite ways used to turn on the hypothetical light bulb. We must commit to dirty and splashy science, but really, the science that makes eyes go wildly big and uncontainable voices go, ‘Oooh…aaaah!’ We must commit to learning and growing. As everything changes so quickly around us, we must commit to concepts of lifelong learning – reflecting on successes and failures. True reflection is the ultimate reminder that we are all human beings capable of incredible miracles.”

In her Teacher of the Year application, Ms. Carreiro wrote, “Every child, regardless of disability, has the potential to learn, be successful, and value themselves. It is the responsibility of teachers to set the bar high and be the means for students to not only reach the bar but to climb over it and excel. As a teacher of students with exceptionalities, who are often not only ESE, but economically disadvantaged, from a minority group, and the product of unstable home environments, I am often faced with the challenge of rebuilding students into what they can become on their way to adulthood. Reaching them makes me a better mother, a better friend, a better educator, a better person. Teaching my students and helping others teach similar students can make the future a better place. My message is quite simply, every student can learn, every student is worth it.”

Bedtime Texting Bad for Teens’ Health

Out2News.com

 

A new study finds that many American teens text while in bed, leading to less sleep, daytime drowsiness, and poorer academic performance. Investigators analyzed 3,200 middle and high school students and found nearly 62% of those polled used their smartphones after bedtime; nearly 57% texted, tweeted, or messaged in bed; and nearly 21% awoke to texts. Dr. Sushanth Bhat, an assistant professor of neuroscience at Seton Hall writes, “Since getting the proper amount of sleep is very important for brain development and learning in the teenage years, our study should prompt parents and guardians to consider placing reasonable limitations on adolescent smartphone usage at night.”

Veteran’s Day for a Veteran Born on November 11th

 

Out2News.com By: Bruce Nathan

Each year as a child there was no school on my birthday. I thought it was because of my birthday we had no school when I was a young lad.

It was not until I knew of the fine men and women who protect this country that I found there was a real importance to understanding the true reason for November 11th.

From that time and forward I decided my birthday is never going to really be about me again.

As I did more research about Veteran’s Day, the thought of giving back has always been foremost on my mind. The years passed by and then came 9/11.

I said that’s it! I am joining the military to help anyway that I can. As a Physical Therapist, I thought of helping the troops.

The wounded who would need rehab and wanted to get back to the front line.

I never had any idea where I would be placed but It was for whatever purpose needed me.

It’s a fate thing. Since I never had military training and I was going in as an officer, I was required to go through military schooling first.

That took quite some time, especially as a United States Army reservist.

I went to many bases through the United States and finally ended up with the 320th Unit out of South Carolina.

It is a medical training unit. We were set up to train the troops going overseas with high intensity 3 day training sessions in basic emergency medical treatment that is generally needed on the battle field.

4 or 5 groups came through back to back.

There could be 3,000 soldiers going through this training process in any two week period. Everyone, and I mean everyone, was dedicated to this task of helping out each and every soldier.

These are the warriors of our country. Giving to these brave people is never a problem

Bessey Creek Elementary School in Palm City had a wonderful ceremony on November 6th at 7:45 AM for about an hour.

Out2News.com

It was nicely put together by the incredible staff of the school and the students did a special salute to the veteran’s in attendance, who were cordially invited to the event.

A special song was performed by Cassidy Diana which made you feel what it is to be a member of the military and their family.

Over the top fantastic.

The entire event gave the true meaning of honor and commitment of our soldiers to the United States of America.

I was happy I was able to attend the event not only as a Veteran but as a father and having Chrissy next to me always makes it extra special! God Bless America!!

Being Overweight During Adolescence

May Lead to Clogged Arteries Later in Life.

 

Out2News.com

Portuguese researchers examined nearly 1,000 teenagers and found those with a body mass index of 25 or more (indicating they are either overweight or obese) are 2.3 times more likely to have high blood pressure than their peers who are at a healthy weight.

Previous research indicates that pre-hypertension or hypertension during young adulthood is associated with a greater risk for calcium deposits in the arteries during later adulthood.

Superintendent Presents Success Plan

To Martin County School Board For Adoption

Out2News.com

Stuart, FL – Martin County School District Superintendent Laurie J. Gaylord presented the district’s first-ever proposed 2015-2016 Success Plan to School Board members during their October 28th workshop. The Success Plan is a comprehensive, strategic work plan that guides work to achieve education excellence at the high, middle and elementary school levels.

“The Success Plan is our actionable blueprint for work that will lead all levels of our district to a dynamic educational system of excellence,” said Superintendent Gaylord. “We have collaborated with the community to develop a work plan that focuses attention on the work that matters most to providing our students with a strong foundation for success and great value for our taxpayers.”

The Success Plan clearly defines specific goals for the school year, as well as projects and programs that must be completed in order to achieve the goals. The plan also includes quarterly performance scorecards to monitor the district’s progress throughout the year toward achieving those goals.

Since March 2015, Superintendent Gaylord and district leadership have been working with TransPro Consulting, a Florida-based public sector management firm, to develop the plan. Teachers, administrators, school board members, parents and the community at large participated in the planning process with workshops held in April.

TransPro CEO Mark Aesch joined Superintendent Gaylord in presenting the draft Success Plan to the Board at the workshop and will present the plan for adoption at the next Board meeting.

FAU Lectures and Exhibition Mark the 800th Anniversary of the Magna Carta

Out2News.com

BOCA RATON, Fla. — Florida Atlantic University’s Department of History will celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta with several lectures. On Thursday, Nov. 5 at 4 p.m., Ralph V. Turner, Ph.D., professor at Florida State University, presents the keynote lecture “Magna Carta and the Medieval English Nobility.” Then on Friday, Nov. 6 at noon, there will be a panel discussion titled “Magna Carta in English and Early American History.” Panelists include FAU’s British historians Boyd Breslow, Ph.D., Ben Lowe, Ph.D., and Douglas Kanter, Ph.D. All events will take place on the fifth floor of the Wimberly Library, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus and are free and open to the public.

The Magna Carta, a charter of rights and liberties, is the core of English and American law and has influenced the legal systems of many other democratic nations. These lectures and a related exhibition trace the story of how this medieval charter became an enduring symbol of liberty and its’ influence on America’s founding fathers and the United States Constitution.

Turner received his doctorate from Johns Hopkins University, where he wrote his thesis on the English royal courts of justice under King John and Henry III. A revised and expanded version was published as “The King and his Courts” by Cornell University Press (1968). He has spent most of his academic career doing research on medieval English history, chiefly on the Angevin kings and their government. This interest led him to turn to study of Magna Carta and its impact on Anglo-American government and politics, “Magna Carta through the Ages” (Pearson 2003).

Breslow specializes in Medieval European studies and the ancient world; Lowe studies Tudor-Stuart England, Early Modern Europe, and European Religious and Intellectual History; and Kanter specializes in Modern Britain, Modern Ireland and the
British Empire.

Events will be accompanied by an exhibit on the history of English and American liberties titled “Magna Carta 800 years: Legacy of Liberty.” The exhibition runs from Thursday, Nov. 5 through Monday, Feb. 29, 2016, and will be closed for the winter holidays. Exhibition hours are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The exhibition features rare books, documents, pamphlets and historical items from FAU Libraries’ Marvin and Sybil Weiner Spirit of America Collection. An original 13th century broadsword and an array of 18th century and modern replica artifacts from Robert Feeney’s personal collection also will be on display.

For more information, call 561-297-3840 or visit www.fau.edu/history.

Sleep Apnea May Hurt Kids’ School Performance

 

Out2News.com

Investigators have found that children with sleep-disordered breathing, such as sleep apnea, perform worse on language arts, math, and science tests than kids without such conditions. The findings come from a review of sixteen studies dealing with sleep apnea or related disorders in children and academic achievement. Lead author Dr. Barbara Galland writes, “Given the potential adverse consequences of sleep-disordered breathing on health, behavioral, and learning outcomes in children, it is important for parents and clinicians to recognize symptoms of sleep-disordered breathing.”

“We are thrilled to have Buster on site to help educate our students about safety on the school bus. The Transportation department will be demonstrating the importance of school bus safety using Buster, who can move, speak, and listen via remote control. Buster is an interactive and motivating “assistant” to help teach our younger children the importance of school bus safety. Buster’s first stop will be at Jensen Beach Elementary this Friday,” says Laurie J. Gaylord, Superintendent.

National School Bus Safety Week is a great opportunity to remind motorists to slow down in a school zone and always exercise caution when buses are stopped, loading or unloading children. This year’s theme — “Be Smart, Be Seen” — aims to heighten awareness of local stop arm laws and urges drivers to be extra cautious when approaching a stopped school bus.

Indiantown Middle School Principal Honored

Among Florida’s Top Six Principals

Out2News.com

INDIANTOWN, Fla. – Indiantown Middle School Principal Jeff Raimann was cheered by students and teachers for being recognized as one of the top six principals in Florida on Thursday. Raimann is a 2015 recipient of the Florida TaxWatch Principal Leadership Awards, which annually honors the top two elementary, middle and high school principals in the state.

“I can wholeheartedly attribute this recognition to an unwavering commitment and dedication of our students, parents, teachers and staff. This truly is the ultimate ‘we did it’ award and it means such a great deal to this very proud community,” said Principal Jeff Raimann. “I am beyond grateful that Florida TaxWatch and the program sponsors have shined this magnificent light on our entire community!”

The Florida TaxWatch Principal Leadership Award is the only honor given to principals who exceed expected learning gains in reading and mathematics for at-risk students in low-income, high-risk schools. No nominations are accepted for the awards; the Principal Leadership Awards is an entirely data-driven program.

The awards program is part of the Florida TaxWatch Principal Leadership Initiative. The goal of the initiative is to improve student achievement in high-risk schools and close the achievement gap by studying the identified principals and changing state policies to reflect their successful practices.

“As the CEO of his school, Principal Raimann is breaking down barriers to achievement for at-risk students,” said Dominic M. Calabro, President and

CEO of Florida TaxWatch, the independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit public policy research institute. “He and his stellar team proves that by fostering student achievement at the highest levels of school leadership, every student can be successful in the classroom, regardless of race, wealth, zip code or school zone.”

Joining in Thursday’s celebration were Martin County Schools’ Superintendent Laurie Gaylord and Amy Gray, West Palm Beach District Manager for the Florida Lottery.

“We are proud of Mr. Raimann. He provides the leadership and motivation to help his teachers, staff and students succeed,” says Laurie J. Gaylord, Superintendent. “He is committed to his students and this esteemed award is well deserved. It is an honor for Mr. Raimann and the Martin County School District to have been selected.”

In September, Principal Raimann was honored at the 3rd annual Principal Leadership Awards ceremony in Orlando, sponsored by the Florida Lottery, Kyra Solutions, the J.M. Rubin Foundation, and the Florida Consortium of Public Charter Schools. In addition to recognition at the evening event, each principal also received a generous financial award.

“The Florida Lottery is proud to be a sponsor of the Florida TaxWatch Principal Leadership Awards,” said Florida Lottery Interim Secretary Tom Delacenserie. “The importance of a quality education is something these principals instill in their students’ lives every day, and what drives the Lottery to maximize revenue to support education programs to benefit Florida students and schools.”

Principal Raimann and the other 2015 honorees will be recognized for their leadership and students’ performance later this month on October 28th before the Florida State Board of Education.

“I commend the principals and teachers around Florida who are working to prepare all students for success in the classroom and beyond,” said Marva Johnson, Chairman of the State Board of Education and Corporate Vice President of Bright House Networks. “Every child in Florida deserves the

opportunity to receive the highest quality education our taxpayers can offer. Principals around the state are changing students’ lives and surpassing expectations, and we’re proud to honor six of them this year.”All of the 2015 honorees are:
Chimene Johnson, Apalachicola Bay Charter School, Franklin;

All of the 2015 honorees are:

  • Harriet Taylor, Springfield Elementary School, Bay;
  • Jeffrey Raimann, Indiantown Middle School, Martin;
  • Sandra Whidden, Sebring Middle School, Highlands;
  • Thomas Bolling, Interlachen High School, Putnam; and
  • Judith Marty, Mater Academy Charter High School, Miami-Dade.

Stuart – I tell this story each year and it seems to be more important as each year goes by. A profound comment was made last evening just before the beginning of the 2008 Homecoming Parade in downtown Stuart.

Each year I think immediately of how right this gentleman was, I simply hope that these kinds of events do not disappear from our culture it restores our connection to each other when we knew each other in different place in time.

Dr. Bruce Health Update

 

More School Athletes Using Chewing Tobacco

 

Out2News.com

While high school athletes may be getting the message that cigarettes are bad for their health, it appears many don’t see the dangers involved with smokeless tobacco. Between 2001 and 2013, high school athletes use of chew, moist snuff, or dip increased 10% to 11%, while no change was noted among non-athletes. According to their findings, young athletes are almost 80% more likely to use smokeless tobacco products than those who do not participate in organized sports. Health officials believe tobacco-free policies that ban all tobacco use by players, coaches, referees, and fans on school campuses and at all public recreational facilities may help make smokeless tobacco use less acceptable and reduce its use among student athletes.

Tigers Defeat South Fork For A Big 21 – 13 Win In 32nd Annual Martin Bowl

Out2News.com

Stuart – What was expected to be a shoot-out turned out to be defensive match -up.

Through most of the first half Martin County led 7 – 0. South Fork did score 13 points in the second quarter but the Martin County defense shut them down completely in the second half.

Friday night lights is not only about the game and those we meet but it’s about the band’s. Watch football on T.V. and at the half all you get are talking heads. Go to a game and you get the band’s, the cheerleaders, the color of the drill team.

Tigers Defeat South Fork For A Big 21 – 13 Win In 32nd Annual Martin Bowl

Out2News.com

Stuart – What was expected to be a shoot-out turned out to be defensive match -up.

Through most of the first half Martin County led 7 – 0. South Fork did score 13 points in the second quarter but the Martin County defense shut them down completely in the second half.

Friday night lights is not only about the game and those we meet but it’s about the band’s. Watch football on T.V. and at the half all you get are talking heads. Go to a game and you get the band’s, the cheerleaders, the color of the drill team.

Dr. Bruce Health Update

Light from Smartphones & Tablets May Decrease Sleep Quality in Kids

Out2News.com

Parents have good reason to ban smartphones, tablets, and laptops from their children’s bedrooms at night: bright light from these devices may reduce the production of the sleep-promoting hormone called melatonin by as much as 37%. Study co-author Dr. Mary Carskadon adds, “The message is that we really have to be careful about protecting our especially young teens from light at night, which means parents need to get all screens out of the bedroom, because ultimately they can be quite damaging to a child’s capacity to get enough sleep.”

Stuart, FL –The Martin County School District is pleased to announce Jeff Raimann of Indiantown Middle School has been selected by Florida TaxWatch as a recipient of the Principal Leadership Award, acknowledging top performing principals in Florida helping at-risk students excel in school. Recognition is based on analysis of student achievement gains in reading and mathematics in schools that have high percentages of students with disabilities, students designated as English as a second language learners, and those eligible for free and reduced lunch.

“We are proud of Mr. Raimann. He provides the leadership and motivation to help his teachers, staff and students succeed,” says Laurie J. Gaylord, Superintendent. “He is committed to his students and this esteemed award is well deserved. It is an honor for Mr. Raimann and the Martin County School District to have been selected.”

Mr. Raimann has served as Principal at Indiantown Middle School for four years and is in his 16th year in education. He was recognized at a ceremony in Orlando on September 24th along with his family and Superintendent Gaylord in attendance.

The Florida TaxWatch Principal Leadership Award is the only honor given to principals who exceed expected learning gains for at-risk students in low-income, high-risk schools.

Out2News.com

In photo: Publix employees celebrate a great 2014 Tools for School drive with the delivery of $36,300 worth of school supplies.

Stuart — Publix Super Markets and its employees have been longtime supporters of United Way.

Whether it comes to raising more money, creating more awareness or rallying more volunteers, Publix employees go above the call of duty to make their community a better place for all.

Once again this year, all Publix locations in Martin County are participating in the Tools for School event during which Publix shoppers can donate a few dollars while checking out to help purchase school supplies for local students in need. The campaign will run through August 12.

“Publix is proud to support the United Way of Martin County and the many organizations, schools and children they serve through our Tools for Schools program,” said Nicole Maristany Krauss, Media and Community Relations Manager. “Together with the help of our passionate customers, 25 schools will receive supplies to help students have a successful school year and we’re thrilled to support the important work the United Way does in our community.”

Last year, Publix customers donated more than $36,300 during the Tools for School drive. When this year’s fund drive is complete, Publix will order the school supplies with the money, and United Way of Martin County will help coordinate the delivery and distribution of purchased school supplies to Martin County School District schools and teachers in September. Students in need of school supplies are asked to notify their guidance counselor for more information.

United Way of Martin County’s mission is to lift the community and change lives together through the collective power of fundraising, volunteerism, advocacy and character-building. Since 1972, United Way has been working to create long-term social change and provide support to Martin County residents by investing in programs that strive to: end hunger, strengthen families, enhance healthy living, improve education, support employment and ensure safety.

IRSC RANKED 3RD TOP COLLEGE IN STATE FOR TRADE CERTIFICATION

Out2News.com

Over 600 Treasure Coast residents earned trade, technical or health care certifications from Indian River State College this school year propelling IRSC to the third top spot in the state in the Florida College System for the number of graduates earning certification. Certifications are nationally recognized credentials such as Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) or Cisco computer certification that attest to an individual’s knowledge and skills.

The affordable hands-on training can be completed in a step-by-step manner to develop increasingly sophisticated skills, which students often combine with working in a related field or while preparing to launch a new career or open a business.

The automotive certificate program at IRSC gave Mario Abascal the knowledge and skills to launch his own business, Gearhead Fabrication in Stuart. The young entrepreneur works on super chargers and race cars. Geoff Paddock used his IRSC training in air conditioning as the springboard for Paddock Air Conditioning in Port St. Lucie, where he serves residential customers and property management companies.

Programs include industrial training in air conditioning, welding, automotive and manufacturing, computer science, public service and over 20 health care programs.

One of the newest programs is the Fast Track to Manufacturing, delivering customized training for manufacturing companies and seven-week boot camps for people seeking

employment. Participants earn the Certified Production Technician (CPT) credential from the Manufacturing Skills Standard Council and can earn OSHA 10 workplace safety certification.

IRSC also offers apprenticeships, with no tuition cost, in plumbing, electrical, masonry, air conditioning and culinary. Academy-based certificate programs prepare the region’s law enforcement officers and fire fighters.

The College’s over 20 health care programs stand-out as the most prolific generator of certifications and supply a pipeline of employees for Treasure Coast hospitals, nursing homes, physicians, dentists and health care facilities.

For more information, visit www.irsc.edu or call 1-866-792-4772.

FAU’s Director of Advising in the College of Arts and Letters

Chosen for International Honor

Out2News.com

BOCA RATON, Fla. (May 27, 2015) – Laura Mooney, director of Student Academic Services in Florida Atlantic University’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters, is one of 10 internationally to be selected to serve as a mentor for the 2015-17 Class of Emerging Leaders for NACADA: The Global Community for Academic Advising. The purpose of the Emerging Leader program is to provide a mentoring experience to those interested in becoming more involved in the association.

This will be Mooney’s second term as a mentor. She was selected because of her outstanding success with her first mentee and because of her commitment to the program and her involvement and leadership in the association.

“In all the ways I have been part of NACADA leadership over the years, this is one of my favorite programs and I’m honored to have this opportunity to contribute,” said Mooney.

The Emerging Leader program is a two-year program in which Mooney will work closely with an emerging leader in the association and help him or her gain skills, experiences and knowledge needed to move into a leadership position in the association. The two will develop a plan for the emerging leader’s involvement, which will be based on his or her interests, expertise, and goals for the future. Leadership in NACADA does not only mean elected positions in the association but also can mean leadership in research, publications, presentations, and other areas in NACADA.

To Support Helping People Succeed Programs

Out2News.com

Jensen Beach — The Treasure Coast Music Teachers Association and Helping People Succeed celebrated their 2014 “Music-Thon”, set for Saturday at Treasure Coast Square in Jensen Beach.

Appearing all-day at the entrance to Macy’s at the north end of the mall, Treasure Coast area music students performed LIVE, on stage. The musicians included pianists, vocalists, guitarists, violins, violas, cellists and more.

WPEC-CBS Channel 12 anchor Liz Quirantes is honorary chair for the Music-Thon. She is an award-winning news anchor, known for supporting causes for children. She is the recipient of a Media Advocate Award from Florida’s Children First and works closely with the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County.

Making her final appearance as a student, at the annual event was local vocal prodigy Savannah Webber. Maybe we will see her as an alum opera etic “Empressario” in the future performing for us.

Each year, the Treasure Coast Music Teachers Association designates a local non-profit organization to benefit from community donations. Helping People Succeed was selected this year for its many programs available to 4,500 families served in Martin, St. Lucie and Okeechobee counties.

Among the various classes for children from newborns to 5 years old is the Music & Movement program offered in Martin and St. Lucie counties. Paula Barnes, the recipient of the Macaroni Kid Gold Daisy Award, is the coordinator for children and their families.
