 Reading Teacher of the Year

 
 
Windy Ridge K-8 second grade teacher, Paul Caswell, has been named the Florida Reading Association Elementary School Reading
Teacher of the Year for 2013. Mr. Caswell
will be presented with his award on Saturday, September 28, 2013 at the General
Session of the Florida Reading Conference.

Mr. Caswell has been teaching for 22 years.
In Florida, he is certified in elementary
education grades 1-5, Library Media
Specialist, and ESOL. He also holds
additional certifications in the State of New
York. He has worked in Orange County
Public Schools since 2002. In the classroom,
 Mr. Caswell has implemented literacy
strategies such as the Daily 5 and CAFÉ. 
 Mr. Caswell said, “Giving students choice, flexibility, and the opportunity to read and
write in authentic situations is what I believe makes teachers great. I knew I has
 something special happening with
my program when students
were asking if they could take clipboards
and paper outside to the playground so
that they could write stories and ask survey questions of their friends based upon what
they were learning in the classroom.”   
 
Principal Sheilla Johnson said, “Mr. Caswell
 is also looked upon as a technology guru by
 the teachers. He finds the most interesting websites to pull into his instruction as well
 as to use for classroom management. His
 use of his personal iPad in the classroom aroused such a fire in the other teachers
that now most of the teachers in the
classroom have requested and
received iPads to use with their classes.”
