A surprise visit from Superintendent Robert W. Runcie leaves one teacher with all smiles at Parkside Elementary School. After dedicating her entire professional career to education, Ms. Wilkerson was greeted by the Superintendent with flowers and a special thank you for all of her hard work, which begins at 6 a.m. and ends at 6 p.m. everyday. Wilkerson is the school’s before care and after school care coordinator and also teaches classes.
The Superintendent also got to visit classrooms, which host the technology infused project-based learning program, COMPASS. The COMPASS exhibition showcases what students learned about Florida's wildlife and vegetation.
