I wanted to share with you the Leadership Seminole visit feedback we received from Dr. Sharpe, Director of Leadership Development of SCPS:
“I truly enjoyed Leadership Seminole Education Day and the visits to your schools. As part of the planning committee, I received the feedback information and wanted you to know that the participants loved the school visits. In fact, the school visits were the highest rated events of the day! Below are comments from the group relevant to the school visits. Please let your staff and students know how much everyone enjoyed the day. Thank you for your hard work and preparation that made the day such a success!
“What were the most beneficial aspects of this session? Exposure to the kids at the schools. ~ Seeing and interaction with the students was great. Having the tours and performances led by students was awesome. Seeing the “special” programs and classrooms was very interesting. Lunch.~ Spending time with the kids. ~ School visit. ~ Hands-on demo of classroom tech. ~ What a great day! We obviously saw the “cream of the crop”~ Realizing what is being taught in elementary/middle. Great academics and preparation. ~ Love the hands on interaction approach of going to elementary, middle and high school to learn about what they can do. ~ Touring the different school level. ~ Visit to schools was awesome. ~ Seeing the students in the actual programs. ~ I have participated in numerous leadership programs with education topic days, this was by far the most rewarding and special because of the student participation! ~ School visits and technology in schools. ~ Great day, great info, great insight. ~Understanding new technology use in schools. ~ I loved the visit to Casselberry Elementary and SSMS. ~ Visiting the schools and seeing how and what one’s kids learn today. Seminole County schools seems to be on target with today’s issues facing out students today. ~ Knowledge of all the Seminole County is doing make us an educational leader in the nation. ~ Learning what kids learn in school today and the technology that is being used. ~ Tours of the schools – awesome! ~ I loved how interactive this session was. I certainly learned a lot. The kids at SSMS just blew me away! ~Having a kindergartner, I am not just impressed, I am fascinated and excited about what Seminole County schools are offering. I loved this session. ~ School tours were awesome! ~ Engaging with the students was the most rewarding part of the day. ~ Really enjoyed the program, especially the elementary and middle school – well done and it was great insight into our k-12. ~ The tour of Casselberry and SSMS were incredible! It was amazing to see and learn about the great leaders SCPS is developing. Great Job! ~ BEST DAY EVER! ~ Seeing how the schools operate. ~ Getting to see all of the interaction with activities in each level of schools. ~ The early learning and what is going on in schools today and what they are doing to help all kids. ~ Seeing culture in schools – great stuff. ~ The middle and elementary school programs were awesome! ~ I don’t really know how you could top this day. Never in my life have I been so inspired or so blown away like I was when I saw what the middle school and elementary schools are doing to build leaders in children. The level of detail that went into planning this day was evident. The activities by the children were phenomenal. Being at the middle and elementary schools this morning was one for the best experiences of my life. Today solidified my faith in our education system in Seminole County. It was very emotional. Thank you so very much!“
Hats off to everyone again! We are solidifying our CULTURE of LEADERSHIP – TOGETHER !
