Congratulations to Mr. Sheehy!

He was voted by our Gideon family as our Teacher of the Year.

Mr. Sheehy is known for his costumes, golf pants, and basketball coaching along with his normal classroom duties. He encourages students to do their best and keeps them excited about learning. Gideon is lucky to have this fun teacher on our campus.

These are his 3 favorite quotes.

“Teach by the 3 P’s – Preparation, Partnership, & Passion”

“ Be a great teammate, not a good teammate, a great teammate”

“This is a customer service job, and our customers are 8 & 9 year old’s. If your service stinks they will be sure to let you know by their words or actions”.

Thank you for everything you do Mr. Sheehy.

Meet Makaiyah: She came to us from a nearby district and was more than two grade levels behind. However, after 1.5 years in #RTI and breakfast club (our morning reading tutorial group), she fell into tier 1 on iSIP for the first time ever. Gators are so proud of her. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
Please help us celebrate her improvement by liking this post.

Way to go Makaiyah!🎉🎉🎉
