Corey Thornton Supports Govt. Charlie Crist who stood up for many teachers in Florida against merit-based pay...

Speaking of Gov. Charlie Crist we cant forget he courageously stood up to members of his own political party by vetoing Senate Bill 6. Florida Legislature in just five weeks that would have revolutionized how public school teachers are paid and evaluated. The bill embraced reasonable concepts but was fatally flawed in the way it implemented them. The next time Republican legislators tackle these issues, they should invite educators to help work out the details.

Lawmakers are right to want to modernize Florida’s teaching profession so that the best teachers are well paid and the worst are fired. But Crist was right that the solution cannot be built inside the Legislature’s echo chamber. He did not stand up for teacher unions Thursday; he stood up for teachers and for real reform. He stood up to arrogant Republican legislators and influential business groups who refused to listen. Instead of criticizing the governor for exposing their failures, legislative leaders should begin again, this time in collaboration with the education community.

Bullies are not just in schools but the work place also. Together lets make a Stand!

Corey Thornton @ Fairmount Park Elementary

Dear Corey Thornton,

I just wanted to thank you for your performance last week at Fairmount Park Elementary. Your reinforcing our anti-bully message to the students was the perfect way to kick off our bully prevention program here at Fairmount Park. The students had so much fun participating in your songs and dances, as they heard the importance of staying bully free.

Keep up the good work in helping spread the message to kids that it’s “cool to stay in school” and to treat everyone (especially their teachers!) with respect. What a wonderful gift you are giving the students of Pinellas County!

Thanks again, and we hope to see you back at Fairmount Park in the near future.

Sincerely,

Kim Goldberg
Guidance Counselor at Fairmount Park Elementary

Corey Thornton @ Blanton Elementary!

Thank you for another wonderful year with Blanton Elementary School. Your
Commitment to the students has helped them excel, not only in their classrooms but in their personal lives as well.

Your shows have been the highlight of our school year. Every grade level can enjoy and appreciate the message in your music.” Pull your pants up” and “Red Flag” are a few of our favorites at Blanton Elementary School. It was wonderful having you here for our FCAT pep rally to keep the students focused on task at hand in a fun way. The students left believing that “I’m gonna pass the FCAT-You’re gonna pass the FCAT-
Were gonna pass the FCAT”…Your show was truly an inspiration for them.

We are so fortunate that you have taking the mentor training class for Pinellas County Schools. It’s not every day that a volunteer takes on the task of mentoring a group of 12 young men and encouraging them to do the right thing with their lives. You have helped them all achieve academic success as well as improved self-esteem.

We look forward to another year of Partnering with you. Highest student achievement and life-long learning for students of all abilities are the goals of the faculty and staff at Blanton Elementary School. This educational initiative in strengthened by the collaborative relationship with you. Than you for another great year.

By Deborah Turner The Principal @ Blanton Elementary
