Congratulations to Bayview Elementary School music teacher Robert Todd on being named the Florida Music Educators Association’s (FMEA) 2015 Music Educator of the Year.

Each year, the FMEA recognizes superior educators who go beyond traditional limits to promote quality music education.
“We're so proud of Mr. Todd for being the recipient of such a prominent award,” said Bayview Elementary Principal JoEllen Scott. “His passion for teaching music is evident in and out of the classroom. We couldn't be happier to announce this accolade for both our school and the District.”
