Congratulations to Florangel Goble and Adriana Almendarez, teachers at Pinecrest Prep Middle/High Charter School
High Impact Teachers
Apart from parental involvement, the most important factor contributing to how well a student will learn is the effectiveness of the teacher. Schools don’t teach students, teachers do, and the differing effectiveness between teachers in a school is usually greater than school to school differences.
Some studies have shown that the difference in student learning between having a teacher that is in the top 25% versus the bottom 25% is equivalent to half a year of knowledge. Each year the State of Florida identifies the teachers in the statewide top 30% based on student learning.
Congratulations to Florangel Goble and Adriana Almendarez, teachers at Pinecrest Prep Middle/High Charter School, who were recognized by the State of Florida as one of the highest impact teachers in the state. This is the second year in a row that Ms. Almendarez has been named a high impact teacher. Maria Beatriz Nunez, principal, said “We couldn’t be more proud of all her hard work and dedication, it surely does not go unnoticed.”
