I am grateful for Ms. Mahshie-Downs, the music teacher at Fairlawn Elementary. She not only teaches music to all the grades (bringing a very important subject to our schools that are so limited nowadays with the curriculum), but she takes the time to teach Strings as a Community School class offering, preparing the kids for magnet schools and offering them better educational opportunities. She plans and choreographs the yearly Holiday musical and works so hard to bring chorus, strings, recorders and bells to our kids. She is a true hero, a great educator, and REALLY deserves recognition as sometimes such hard workers blend in and don't get noticed as they should. Both my kids have been with her and learned a love of music because of her passion and dedication. Fairlawn is truly lucky to have her! The music program would not exist if it were not for her hard work.
I am grateful for the education that my kids have received at Fairlawn. Special gratitude to the Gifted teachers, Mendoza and Bermudez. They exemplify what being a great teacher is about. It takes a special teacher to know how to teach brilliant kids and they always go above and beyond to keep gifted kids challenged and on task. Would be wonderful if they offered full time gifted.
Great school. Mrs Tyler is a great principal. Always smiling and takes her time to listen. Excellent teachers, Mrs Burley, Mrs Gonzalez, Mrs izom, Mrs Lorie, Mrs Davis, Mrs Reyes Aguilera and Mrs Barber. It is a privilege to have such a nice and affordable music program. I hope someday there will be a chess club.
I have had nothing but a wonderful experience since my child has attended Fairlawn Elementary. She has learned so much in such a short amount of time due to the exceptional teachers that they have there! TY
Great school. Excellent Teachers and superb Administration. Want to specifically thank Mrs. Grabiel for her hard work and dedication in preparing her students for the FCAT. My daughter was very fortunate to have such a great, caring teacher. She is one of the few teachers that really make a difference in our children's life and will always be treasured. Our children at Fairlawn are extremely lucky to have such a great teacher.
Fairlawn Elementary is an excellent school. I hope hte county's financial state does not take away the principal and teacher's motivation to do what is best for the students. I would like to mention Ms. Valladares and Ms Llerena for their dedication to their job, and also Ms Mashie Downs for her musical talent and the motivation she transmits to the children who are in the music program. Maintaining this program in Fairlawn or any other school must be in the hearts and minds of those who care about our children and our communities.
This school year was quite difficult because third grade is a challenging grade because of the FCAT. I want to thank Mrs. Kohn for doing such a wonderful job in helping my daughter reach her maximum potential. She went above and beyond by tutoring her during her planning time so that she could do her very best. Thank you for your dedication. Fairlawn is simply the best!
Yes, I agree - the middle schools in the area are nowhere near the level of safety and dedication that Fairlawn is at. How terrible to think that our children will go from an A school Elementary to a lower grading middle school that has issues. This is one of my biggest worries even though my children have a few years to go still...
