    How the Nurturing Schools Network approach helps trainee teachers

    I guess it’s a genuine feeling because we really have benefited from it. It really has been the key thing that’s made a difference in our classroom, out of everything that we’ve done so far. I cannot think of a single training course, event, anything that I did in the last year that effected and impacted my teaching, my wellbeing, the wellbeing of my children, their learning, as The Nurturing Programme. I found that of all of the training that I had, it was the most effective and the most beneficial for my students. And I think for the community as well because when you start to talk to students…

    Author, Poet and Literacy Advocate Pat Mora on Bilingual Literacy, Bookjoy

    Being bilingual is as if you have a piano, and you can use both the white and the black keys. I think it’s a challenge to educators to see language diversity as a resource. It is incredibly important, and I’m very impressed that this university is committed to supporting diversity and to helping all of our students succeed in our schools. Us educators have a grand opportunity to connect students with text for pleasure. I came up with this word, bookjoy. A. It was sort of fun to make up a word, right? But it is the way I feel about reading: the pleasure of me and text.

    Bay Pines STEM Dedication

    It’s a tremendous honor to be here on behalf of my late husband John Chapin. The St. Petersburg College Bay Pines STEM Center is near and dear to his heart and the success of students. He was a master of finding ways for students to get engaged in the learning. I like to think of the future of STEM here as really a public service to our community.

    Electric cars on campus!

    Mr. Henrique Muller: I’ve had the car since March 2014. And what Tesla did was unlike anyone else. He did the technology by adding many, many small batteries… actually, they are readily available 18650 laptop batteries.

By doing many small batteries, he was able to get much more range out of the car. And depending where your foot is it goes from super car to eco car. The mileage is quite amazing. It is equivalent to about 90 miles per gallon. If you just drive around town,…

I am an independent third party developer with Nintendo and Microsoft. SPC has the best professors that I have met. They have the best pricing. I have talked to other people at other schools and they are not really doing anything after they graduate but a lot of SPC students seem to be. Last year I won a semi award for the game that I developed and within 12 hours Nintendo was calling me on the phone. From there, Microsoft licensed me…
