Why Our Teachers Love Working Here
“I love working for the Osceola School District because it has given me the opportunity to work as a Drama teacher and has given me the wings to spread my knowledge. I have worked for the district since 2009 and at Boggy Creek Elementary since 2010. I enjoy working at Boggy Creek Elementary because I have had the opportunity to work with different administrators who love the Fine Arts Program, especially Drama. The faculty supports the program and we work together to collaborate. I also have the pleasure to facilitate students with the tools to inspire them to continue a career in Fine Arts.”
“...everyone that I have encountered has shown kindness and passion for not only student success but teacher success as well. Thank you Osceola School District for being my “home away from home” where I feel supported in everyway.”
“...I am a newer teacher with just 3 years under my belt. I did my educational studies and student teaching in Massachusetts and moved to Florida immediately afterwards. I was lucky to have been hired by Osceola School Districts to teach at Boggy Creek Elementary School. This was my first teaching experience ever, and as a brand-new teacher it was nerve wracking walking into a brand-new situation, but I found that I was quickly surrounded by coworkers and administration that truly cared and wanted me to succeed. If you want a school district that will truly help you grow as an Educator and help foster your own unique teaching style, come check out Osceola School District.”
“...I’m a product of Osceola County Schools! I had the pleasure of attending Michigan Avenue Elementary, St. Cloud Middle and graduated from St. Cloud High. I have loved being able to work along side former teachers and have continued to learn from them. Not only do I work for the school district, but my husband does as well, our son attends my school, and our daughter will before we know it, too. I love that as an educator it allows me to be a professional and an involved mother because our district leaders value family. However, what I love the most, is that during a global pandemic, I get to be a part of such an amazing group of educators that have stepped up to go above and beyond to provide the students of our county some normalcy and love during an extremely stressful time. It makes me so proud that I call Osceola County home.”
