Title
B.E.L.I.E.V.E. motivational speaker for Professional Development Day at Merritt Island High School

Discussion
Dorina Sackman is the 2014 Florida Teacher of the Year and one of four finalists for the National Teacher of the Year.  She is a motivational speaker who travels the country empowering educators to believe in all students.  Merritt Island High is requesting permission for Dorina to present on February 16th, professional development day.  Nine schools will attend the presentation in the morning at Merritt Island High.  Dorina will then travel to Bayside High where she will present to another group of nine schools.  Dorina is the motivational speaker that spoke at the Brevard Teacher convening on September 12, 2014.  The total cost should be around $139.00 per attending school.  Her positive message would benefit all teachers.
