TAMPA, Fla. - It’s our favorite part of the week!
Friday leads us into the weekend, but it’s also when we showcase our 10News School of the Week powered by Duke Energy Florida. This week we spent time on the campus of Morgan Woods Elementary in Hillsborough County.
Congratulations Tigers! This school is filled with pride, especially since they are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year.
What’s even more amazing is the Kindergarten teacher, Sheila deDiego has been teaching at this school for 46 years. Not only does she love her job, but the kids love her. She’s the most requested teacher on campus. She’s even retired once, but returned. That’s passion.
The school is also part of the new Town ‘n’ Country STEM Innovation HUB with other area schools. The concepts taught in elementary are carrying over into middle school and high school and preparing students for careers or college after graduation.
The STEM activities make them critical thinkers through creativity, communication and collaboration. Students have fun, but are learning too. It’s already making an impact as they reach middle school, teachers are having to adjust their teaching plans because the students are more advanced thinkers already.
It’s just one reason they’re 10News School of the Week powered by Duke Energy Florida.
