Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

The mayor is listening



It's not every day that a group of classroom teachers command a visit from Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio. So we wanted to help them celebrate the upcoming pow wow.

On Saturday morning, Iorio will address a group of National Board Certified Teachers in Hillsborough, who have formed a council to offered continued professional development and to network. The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. at the Hillsborough Classroom Teacher Association offices at 4505 N. Rome Avenue.

Doesn't sound like a big deal? Well, just consider this. The teachers have been trying to set up the meeting with Iorio for a year. They usually meet on Monday evenings, but moved to Saturday morning to accomodate Iorio's schedule. Imagine if they had invited the governor.
