Welcome to my homepage. My name is Lesli Evans and I am a liaison at the the Area Center for Educational Enhancement in Region III. My work involves supporting school district and postsecondary staff, as well as, preservice and inservice teachers in implementing the Sunshine State Standards and understanding the FCAT. I work with a variety of educators at different levels to assist their implementation of various programs to address the new state standards. Our center provides support and training for a new state standards. Some examples are: The Electronic Curriculum Planning Tool, STEPS, Connections, Florida Writes!, and Math Best Practices.
The Area Center for Educational Enhancement in Region III is located at the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Florida, however, my office is at Rollins College, in Winter Park, Florida. Prior to my work with the Area Center, I spent several years working as an editor in the Mathematics department of a major publisher. I spent some years teaching before working as an editor. In addition, I am very involved in supporting my child's school, serving as chair of the School Advisory Council.
I work to provide technical assistance to educators across a broad range of topics. Some of which include integrating technology. I am very interested in meeting other educators, parents, writers, and editors knowlegeable or researching "good" models for integrating technology with curriculum, instruction, and assessment.
I live in Orlando, Florida. It is the number one tourist destination in the world! There is a great deal of fun to be had in our city. We are fortunate to have beautiful weather for most of the year. The welcoming climate allows us to enjoy a variety of sports and other outdoor activities all year round. My family loves basketball, baseball, football, and swimming! In addition to a climate that supports an active lifestyle, the diversity of people visiting Orlando keeps life both entertaining and interesting. Although Orlando is growing at a breakneck pace, it is easy to get around. It is a beautiful and comfortable city.
