Welcome to my Homepage. My name is Dianne Sanden Febles and I am a teacher at Southside Elementary School in Fernandina Beach, Florida. I teach students who have profound mental handicaps and am honored by being Nassau County's District Teacher of the Year 2000.
I am a doctoral student in Educational Leadership at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. I have completed the necessary coursework and my dissertation topic is teacher knowledge and implementation of accommodations in testing for students with disabilities. I am very interested in collaborating with other teachers who are interested in this topic or those who have expertise in assessment accommodations and test modifications.
I live on beautiful Amelia Island located in the northeast corner of Florida. The climate is ideal for year round outdoor activities. Fernandina Beach, the county seat of Nassau County, is the birthplace of the shrimping industry. The Nassau County School District provides educational opportunties to more than 10,000 students in 15 schools. Southside Elementary School is a Prekindergarten through First Grade school which also includes programs for students with varying exceptionalities.
