Welcome to my Homepage. My name is Vivien Pazos and I am a Media Specialist at Miami Coral Park Senior High, "Home of the Rams". I was very fortunate to start my teaching career at C.P. the year before the opening of the new Media Center and was able to have input on the resources, materials, and physical layout of the facility. I am a mother of two girls "my little angels". I collect Precious Moments figurines and love to go shopping. My husband will attest to this. I have a degree from FSU in Library Science and am constanlty learning more about computers and technology.
At the Media Center we have a collection of over 37,000 items of print and non-print materials. We have an outstanding collection of reference and African-American History books. Our students also have access to various research databases at the Media Center such as SIRS and Newsbank.
I enjoy working with students in assisting them with their research assignments and am constantly working with the faculty to plan collaboratively how they will use the Media Center and their resources.
This year I attended "In-Tech 2000" a program created for the Department of Education which consisted of a series of workshops held at the Miami Museum of Science to familiarize educators with the internet and access to their webpage "In Tech 2000 Forum". This site supports the Sunshine State Standards and teachers are asked to add websites and lesson plans according to their specific subject matter. While attending the workshop I got to meet the Commisionner of Education, Frank T. Brogan who visited the museum along with his wife. I spoke to him about the wonderful experience I was having at this workshop and campaigned for my cause. To promote reading and funding of Media Center's in the State of Florida.
What a thrill!!! "BEAM ME UP SCOTTY" " This day on earth was just to unreal".
