Lake County Schools and Lake County Library System have partnered for a district-wide contest with an effort to provide every student in Lake County Schools the opportunity to have a free library card. The new partnership and the library card competition was announced last Tuesday during Jumpstart’s Read for the Record event at Lake Minneola High.

“We want to ensure every child has an opportunity to excel in the classroom and beyond”, says Brian Payne, Community Engagement Liaison. The contest will be recognized through all of the schools in the district. Each school will receive Lake County Library Card Registration forms. Forms will be sent home to each student with instruction to return them by November 21st and a FREE library card will be sent to every student who has signed up. As an added bonus – the elementary school, middle school and high school with the highest percentage of forms returned by November 21st will each win a special trophy to be displayed at their school.

“The 15 public libraries in Lake County have a multitude of helpful resources and knowledgeable library staff to assist students,” said Linda Goff, Youth Services Coordinator with Lake County Library System. “Our libraries offer free computer use, free WiFi, inexpensive copiers, online databases and ebooks, in addition to fun afterschool programs such as Lego Club.

LAURA FAGAN — An eighth-grade American History teacher at Windy Hill Middle, Fagan writes in her application that her “philosophy of teaching is centered on the idea that students should interact with history instead of reciting it.

LINDSEY MASSARO — The first-year band director at Umatilla Middle, Massaro states that her teaching style is to “guide my students’ quest for knowledge by providing access to information rather than acting as the primary source of information. For students to construct knowledge, they need the opportunity to discover and practice skills in authentic situations.” Kelly Sanders, Principal at Umatilla Middle, said, “Much of her success is due to the unparalleled relationships she has developed with her students and the community at-large. Lindsey’s approach is invitational and her can-do attitude has made a world of difference for the band program.”

CYNTHIA MURRAY — The third-year Kindergarten teacher at Eustis Heights Elementary writes in her application that an outstanding teacher is defined by their ability “to go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the success of your students. Outstanding teachers teach to the unique needs of each student by developing rigorous lessons connected to their students’ real-world experiences.” Brenna Burkhead, Principal at Eustis Heights Elementary, said, “She is a leader on campus. She goes above and beyond to meet student needs.”

All nominees filled out an application and a panel of judges’ scored the applications to select the three finalists.

NILDA RIVERA — She began her career with Lake County Schools a year and a half ago and is currently responsibly for fingerprinting new hires, volunteers and vendors. Carolyn Samuel, Director of Human Resources, wrote in a recommendation letter, “She has been a very industrious employee who gives 100 percent each day. Nilda has proven to be dependable, trustworthy, flexible and knowledgeable of the job duties that she has been assigned.” She continues, “Above all, she wants to perform her functions in a proficient and correct manner.”

LYDIA FLORES — With seven years of experience in the Title I Department, Flores has a range of responsibilities including secretarial support, assisting with the Parent Involvement Program and participating in Family School Liaison meetings. Rusty Dosh, Administrative Coordinator for Title I, wrote in a recommendation letter, “Ms. Flores exhibits a strong willingness to provide assistance in tough situations and the ability to adapt when necessary.” He continued, “It is clear to me that she is a caring worker who seeks to enhance and improve her skills for betterment of the department and our district.

ALLISON AULD — Currently in her second year as a bookkeeper at Leesburg High, Auld helps the school maintain financial records and databases. Bill Miller, Principal at Leesburg High, said, “We are very fortunate to have Ms. Auld as bookkeeper. She brings expertise, insight and compassion to our school.
