Eagles it's time to welcome another new Eagle! Janice will be working with our High School Vocational team. Hello, I'm Janice Medina, a special education teacher with 20-plus years of experience in nurturing and supporting students with diverse learning needs. I am coming to you from South Florida. I graduated from Florida Atlantic University in 2004 and earned a master's degree from Nova Southeastern University in 2023. My journey as an educator has been deeply rewarding, I have taught at all levels, but enjoy teaching high schoolers with special needs the most.
