I conduct professional development workshops and seminars dealing with the Florida Sunshine State Standards, Curriculum Frameworks, the FCAT, and the Electronic Curriculum Planning Tool (ECPT) to name a few. I work with teachers, administrators, and pre-service teachers. If you are interested in participating in a workshop, or if you have comments about a seminar you have attended, please email me. You can visit our web site as well as those of the other Area Centers around the state.
I live in Delray Beach, Florida which is in southern Palm Beach County. Delray Beach is about half-way between West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale. I live about 1 mile from the beach!! The weather in South Florida, especially during the winter months, can be very nice. But, come summertime and watch out...we can have temperatures in the upper 90s with high humidity. Interested in learning more about the weather where you are? Check out these sites!
