A new building and a new principal at Dream Lake Elementary

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter July 2, 2016 at 12:15 pm Mama Mia Mama Mia Reply UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 By Misha Corbett of Apopka Then and NowA new era is beginning at Dream Lake Elementary.Carol-Ann Martin-Clenton, former Principal at West Creek Elementary in Orlando for the past two years, took over as Principal of Dream Lake Elementary in Apopka earlier in June. She met with staff and PTA board members, and was formally introduced by John Wright (North Area Superintendent) and Belinda Reyes (North Area Executive Director).Martin takes over for longtime Dream Lake Principal Gary Schadow, who retired at the end of the 2015-16 school year. She referenced him in her opening remarks with a touching promise.Carol-Ann Martin-Clenton – New Principal at Dream Lake Elementary.“I know I have big shoes to fill, but I will search hard for those footprints left behind by Gary Schadow,” she said. “And along the way, we will make new footprints.”Martin moved to Florida from Trinidad and Tobago when she was twelve years old.  She is an Apopka resident, married with three children.  Her son is an Apopka High School graduate, and played football for the Blue Darters.  She has a daughter who attends Wolf Lake Middle School, and another who will attend Dream Lake Elementary.With a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a Master’s degree in Varying Exceptionality, and a Specialist degree in Educational Leadership with a focus on Exceptional Student Education (ESE), Martin has b20 years of experience in education. Please enter your comment! I have been noticing school board campaign signs going up and around Apopka. Mrs. Dean, I really like your campaign signs. I looked at them, and then I saw what was so unique about them. Within the letters of your last name, Dean, there is silhouettes of childen playing, jumping, and activities such as that. That is truly unique and creative. I have never seen any campaign signs such as that. What a great idea! Mama Mia You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here But ESE is her passion, which includes children from mild to profound disabilities, and gifted as well.  She served as the Principal at Cherokee School in Orange County for two years. Cherokee is an elementary school for children with emotional and behavioral disorders.Martin visited Dream Lake Elementary seven years ago for a professional development opportunity.  During her visit, she fell in love with the sense and feel of inclusiveness that every child felt. So in love, in fact, that she dreamt of one day becoming a part of the Dream Lake family.  Although she was very happy at West Creek, when she saw the job opening for a Principal at Dream Lake, she knew she had to take a chance.Mrs. Martin is very excited about the upcoming school year.“Our common ground is what is best for the kid. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of them as an individual.”She plans to implement a very solid student recognition program that encompasses the whole child; including awards for academics, attendance, art, music, social skills, life skills, and more.  It will be a busy summer, with Dream Lake Elementary preparing to move into their brand new, state of the art building, but 2016-2017 is shaping up to be a great year! “I know I have big shoes to fill, but I will search hard for those footprints left behind by Gary Schadow. And along the way, we will make new footprints.”-Carol-Ann Martin-Clenton July 2, 2016 at 9:40 amcenter_img Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Gov.

Congratulations to you. I don’t see anywhere at the front of the new Dream Lake School to pull in and let children out, such as a half circle drive in front of the school. I was also very surprised to learn there is no auditorium. Amazing, no auditorium for the little kids to perform in plays. Nowhere for the jazz performances. I guess they will have to continue to rent the amphitheater out at Northwest Recreation Complex for exceedingly high fees, that is, if that is the way it is. I believe the old school building was better. Old schools rule. Sorry, they just throw them together now days, and they are not built to last, like the old schools were. The breeze way was something that was really cool at the old Dream Lake School. The breeze blew though there, and it was so cool on hot days, and kids had a place to run and get under when it stormed. The old school was built rock solid.

Southern Cone joins North America while Central America sinks

first_imgNews Help by sharing this information Americas Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies to go further Follow the news on Americas Receive email alerts See the World press freedom indexThe process of adopting a Shield Law protecting the confidentiality of journalists’ sources at the federal level is far from over in the United States (20th) but the judicial authorities are no longer jailing journalists and violating civil liberties in the name of national security as they were in the Bush era. So the US is back in the press freedom top 20, as is appropriate for a country where the press has traditionally played its role as independent watchdog well.The other most striking development is the fall of Honduras (128th), which already had a poor ranking and where the 28 June coup d’état took a heavy toll on press freedom. The new de facto government preys on media that do not support it and has managed to impose a news blackout at the international media’s expense.Elsewhere in Central America, the problem of violent crime is undermining countries such as El Salvador, where gangs known as “maras” were already targeting the press before they murdered documentary filmmaker Christian Poveda (after the period covered by this index). The problem has also taken a disturbing turn for the worse in Guatemala (106th). Tension between the press and President Daniel Ortega’s administration explain Nicaragua’s fall to 76th position.The other major decline has been in Venezuela (124th), where a journalist was murdered against a backdrop of rampant criminal violence and President Hugo Chávez’s administration kept changing the rules that govern broadcasting with the aim of steadily silencing its critics. The sudden withdrawal of the licences of 34 regional radio and TV stations in August was part of the strategy.Already badly placed in the 2008 index, Venezuela is now among the region’s worst press freedom offenders, close to Colombia (126th) and Mexico (tied 137th). In both these countries, the security forces are partly, and in no small measure, to blame for the prevailing violence that leads to self-censorship and subjects being placed off-limits. In a state of virtual civil war since the launch of a major federal offensive against drug trafficking in 2006, Mexico has maintained its tragic status as the hemisphere’s most dangerous country for journalists, with 55 killed since 2000 (and nine since January of this year).Only Cuba (170th), the region’s unchanging dictatorship, where press freedom is non-existent, is ranked lower in the index. The meagre hopes raised by Raúl Castro’s accession to the presidency in February 2008 quickly evaporated. Two more imprisonments, bringing the number of detained journalists to 25, the frequent blocking of websites and arrests of bloggers are all evidence of the lack of any evolution in the situation of human rights and freedoms.One of Cuba’s Caribbean neighbours, the Dominican Republic (98th), slipped a few more places because of a high level of violence and an increase in abusive lawsuits against news media. An increase in physical attacks on journalists, combined with lawsuits, administrative censorship and a journalist’s imprisonment, were the reasons for Ecuador’s fall to 84th position.Bolivia (95th) moved in the opposition direction after plummeting last year. The “media war” is not yet completely over but the government gradually resumed a dialogue with a sector of the press that was partly to blame for the previous year’s political crisis, especially in provinces controlled by opposition parties that want autonomy. Long the holder of the record for physical attacks on journalists, Peru (85th) rose in the index despite the government’s recent closure of a radio station.Traditionally marred by violence and a lack of any kind of security for journalists, Paraguay (54th) and Haiti (tied 57th) have both climbed the rankings. Violence towards the media has receded in both countries and journalists are daring to tackle sensitive subjects with greater frequency. Guyana (tied 39th) has soared, overtaking Surinam (42nd), thanks to less legalistic quibbling on the part of the authorities and an end to a government policy of withholding state advertising from certain media. The government still has a radio monopoly, however.A tradition of media diversity, an increase in media democracy and in some cases a decrease in abuse of authority and other censorship attempts are the reasons for the very good rankings obtained by Argentina (47th) and Uruguay (29th), which are on a par with many European countries. Uruguay has even overtaken Costa Rica (30th) as the Latin American country with the highest ranking, staying ahead of Chile (tied 39th) and now close behind Jamaica (23rd) and Trinidad and Tobago (28th), where the press continues to be a respected institution.Brazil (71st), the regional power, finally rid itself in May of a press law it inherited from the military dictatorship, and has benefitted from the government’s efforts to improve access to information. Despite these positive changes, the government has yet to put an end to the persistent violence against the media in the big cities and in the north and northeast. Preventive censorship continues in certain states where the authorities monopolise the local media. One of the countries where prosecutions led to exorbitant damages awards, Canada (19th) fell a few places but still holds the hemisphere’s highest position.
