First Coast Technical College (FCTC)

FSDB collaborates with First Coast Technical College (FCTC) to provide our students with a head start toward a career. Interested students work toward certifications and skill mastery within the various technical programs during the school day. Students have the opportunity to choose from programs in: Horticulture, Culinary Arts, Auto Repair, Cosmetology, and Child Care.

She is extremely passionate about creating a learning environment that educates the whole student. Her philosophy is that all students can learn to high levels.

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education."
