Issue 48 December 10

We had a great meeting last week with Dr. Amber Oliveira from the DePaul School as our guest speaker. Dr. Oliveira gave us an overview of the school’s mission to educate children with dyslexia. We learned it is a very common learning difference that affects 1 in 5 students. The DePaul School faculty provide multi-sensory tracking, diagnostic teaching and repetitive techniques to ensure students with dyslexia succeed in the classroom.
We had such an awesome time at our annual Holiday Party!  The food was incredible and the dancing was so much fun!
Our speaker this week is Senator Aaron Bean. He’ll be hosting his annual “trivia day” for our club, which is always a lot of fun. This will be our last meeting of 2017. I hope you can make it!
See you Wednesday,
Julie Clements

Issue 47 December 3

Last week our guest speaker was Florida Representative Paul Renner. He gave our members and guests an overview of Florida’s short and long term challenges. Public education, roads and quality water are three big topics that our state will continue to grapple with as the population grows to 20 million (surpassing New York). Some positive news is that Florida was voted #1 in fiscal health, despite budgetary surprises following Hurricane Irma. Moving forward, Representative Renner is committed to spending government dollars wisely.
Our guest speaker this week is Dr. Amber Oliveria from the DePaul School of Jacksonville. She’ll share her goals and objectives for educating children with autism.
See you Wednesday,
