Tracie Snow, Administrator of Instructional Services, and Randi Mitchell, Coordinator of Professional Development, were asked to do an eBulletin for Raising and Educating Deaf Children. The eBulletin is associated with the Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, published by Oxford University Press.
Tracie and Randi wrote about the effects of their initiative they started at the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind called “FSDB Pineapple PD.” This platform is a “welcome-mat” for educators to get a glimpse inside our classrooms and an opportunity for Professional Development. The eBulletin is called “Educating Teachers through Social Media.”
The Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind is a tuition-free state public school and outreach center available to eligible Pre-K and K-12 students who are deaf/hard of hearing, blind/visually impaired, or deafblind. At FSDB, students learn how to do more, be more, and achieve more, fulfilling our vision of preparing them for a lifetime of success. FSDB gratefully accepts private donations to support vital programs that directly benefit students and are not paid by state general revenue funds. For a campus tour or to inquire about eligibility for enrollment, contact FSDB Parent Services at 904-827-2212 voice or 904-201-4527 videophone.
