BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard Public Schools Superintendent Mark Mullins, along with nine cabinet members, school board representatives, and the president and vice president of the Brevard Federation of Teachers headed back to school for the day last week.
This time, as educators.
For many, this was a return to their professional roots, while others had limited knowledge of what to expect and spent time preparing in advance for their instructional debut.
By substitute teaching, BPS leaders hoped to experience first-hand some of the challenges teachers face in classrooms across the district every day.
Superintendent Mark Mullins taught algebra to Palm Bay Magnet high schoolers.
Asst. Superintendent of Facilities, Sue Hann, conducted a field study in building construction, and BFT vice president, Vanessa Skipper worked with Stone Middle School students on reading.
