I worked with the team from January through February whenever possible (ranging from one to five times weekly depending). Samoset saw an improvement in scores. Samoset improved the school average from 2.8 to 2.9. The number of students earning a 3.5 increased from 16 to 23. And the number of students earning a 4.0 or higher increased from 7 to 16. Although Samoset did not meet the state mandated scores, the gains that were made are notable. Although not a passing score, 73 students earned a 3.0+ compared to 65 in 2012. Principal Pat Stream thanked me for all of my efforts in working with her school. 2011-2012 School Year Statistics at Southeast and with Title I</p> <p> 65% of students in my ILA classes at Southeast (through December 2011) met state graduation requirements either by passing FCAT with a score of 300+ or by meeting the ACT concordant score of 18 or higher. This is not only an increase over last years percentage, but accounts for four months as a classroom teacher AND the work I did throughout the school year at Saturday school and through ACT Boot Camps.</p> <p> 25% of students that I worked with at Title I schools met graduation requirements either by passing FCAT with a score of 300+ or by meeting the ACT concordant score of 18 or higher, although many more made measurable gains despite not reaching the minimum graduation requirement. These percentages are based on data made available to me which is not complete. 25% is a number that I am happy with considering the brief time I spent with Title I coupled with the fact that I was not the primary classroom teacher. My role was to bring reading strategies to teachers in classrooms, as well as ACT boot camp style test preparation. </p> <p>2010-2011 School Year Statistics at Southeast 62% of students in my ILA classes met graduation requirements either by passing FCAT with a score of 300+ or by meeting the ACT concordant score of 18 or higher. This percentage is an increase over last year and does not include students who attended my after-school boot camps.</p> <p>2009-2010 School Year Statistics at Southeast 47% of students in my ILA classes met graduation requirements either by passing FCAT with a score of 300+ or by meeting the ACT concordant score of 15 or higher.</p> <p> 71% of students increased their score by making measurable gains on the FCAT Retakes in October of 2009.Professional Committees/Organizations/Awards</p> <p> Johnson Middle School Manatee Education Foundation/Gettel Teacher Appreciation Award Recipient, Spring 2014</p> <p> Superintendents Gold Coin of Excellence for benchmark scores, May 2014</p> <p> FCTE Joan F.
