Welcome to my Homepage.
My name is Janie Robinson and I am a teacher at Pembroke Pines Elementary in Broward County, Florida. I teach students in the gifted program in grades 1-5. I also serve as Exceptional Student Education Specialist so I balance two roles at my school. I am very proud of my role in helping other teachers as a member of the Florida League of Teachers (more information about the Florida League of Teachers is available by contacting the Florida Department of Education).
My classroom is really a converted science lab with five sinks and lots of cabinets. On cooler days, my students can work outside on the courtyard patio. We have seven computers in the room so it's easy for each child to have a turn. However, only one computer is linked to the internet.
Broward County is one of the three fastest growing counties in the state of Florida. Each year, about 10,000 new students enter Broward County Public Schools.
The weather here is warm and humid most of the year. In the summer, even though it's hot and sticky, there is usually a tropical breeze. All of our schools are air conditioned.
Search engines are a great way to find useful information on the Web. One of my favorites is Education World.
