    • ALIMACANI ELEMENTARY SCHOOL Retirement Tribute Mrs. Donna Hulsey Alimacani Where Education Is A Treasure And Children Are Inspired To Reach For Their Dreams
    • Because of Donna Hulsey by Mrs. Janice McClure, former Alimacani Elementary School Teacher
      • Because of Donna Hulsey…
        • I became a better teacher-a teacher open to new learning and opportunities, encouraged by Donna’s drive to continually grow and improve…to continually aim for excellence.
      • Because of Donna Hulsey…
        • I learned that you can’t grow or get better, you can’t maintain excellence by always doing things the same way. I learned that change and challenge…grappling and growing…consistently seeking refinement is not easy or painless…but that real achievement is worth the effort.
      • Because of Donna Hulsey…
        • I learned to always have a few possible solutions to suggest if I ever felt the need to complain about a situation-and to be prepared to head up a committee to create a plan!
      • Because of Donna Hulsey…
        • I learned that if I have a problem with another person, I should be prepared to discuss my issue face-to-face with that person and that open, honest communication is the only way to resolve issues.
      • Because of Donna Hulsey…
        • I learned that the best way to learn is through sharing and collaborating-self reflection, self-assessment, and discussion of new possibilities…that TEAMwork accelerates everything!
      • Because of Donna Hulsey…
        • I learned the power of feedback…that feedback is a gift…that validation is worth (at least) a thousand bucks and that caring, specific feedback is the true gift that allows us to refine our practices. I learned that it's not so much “what” the feedback is , but, rather, “how” it is presented that will impact whether or not it is accepted, reflected upon and implemented.
      • Because of Donna Hulsey…
        • I learned the true meaning of “lovingly giving”, as I watched Donna model the ultimate gift of love to her sister.
      Because of Donna Hulsey by Mrs. Janice McClure, former Alimacani Elementary School Teacher
      • Because of Donna Hulsey…
        • I learned to be a more patriotic cicatrize, immersed by Donna into intensive, sacred, intentional demonstrations of love and appreciation for our great nation and for those whop have intentional demonstrations of love and appreciation for our great nation and for those whop have made sacrifices throughout history so that we can enjoy freedom. I learned the importance of education in preserving that freedom…the obligation of education to p of preserving that freedom.
      • Because of Donna Hulsey…
        • This school, Alimacani, was born with a strong foundation of excellence that has sustained throughout its history.
      • Because of Donna Hulsey…
        • This school district, Duval, has experienced the influence of thoughtfulness, reason and passion for children.
      Because of Donna Hulsey by Mrs. Janice McClure, former Alimacani Elementary School Teacher
      • Because of Donna Hulsey…
        • The educational community has gained multiple master teachers, top quality principals, exemplary district leaders and many, many contributors to educational excellence.
        • It has been said that the measure of excellent leadership is not how many followers one has, but how many leaders one develops. How fortunate we are that our paths have crossed with Donna Hulsey…that our lives have been touched and influenced by Donna Hulsey…that we now bear the obligation to lovingly continue what she has begun…influencing others with the importance of education, the passion to expand opportunities to all students, a dedication to country, and a love for human-kind…
      • Because of Donna Hulsey…
        • Lovingly dedicated to Donna Hulsey

        • Mrs. Janice McClure
      Because of Donna Hulsey by Mrs. Janice McClure, former Alimacani Elementary School Teacher
      • What more can I say?
      • We are gathered here with loads of love
      • To honor you today.
      • Build it and they will come
      • Well they came from near and far
      • All flocking to Alimacani,
      • The school that became a 5 star.
      • Where education is a treasure
      • And Children are inspired to reach for their dreams
      • Where administration, students, parents, and teachers
      • Make the best of teams
      • And they came and they came
      • From every cranny and every nook
      • Our reputation grew and grew
      • Were even featured in REDBOOK.
      Donna Hulsey by Mrs. Jill Grens, former Alimacani Elementary School Teacher
      • And they never stopped coming-rooms we began to lack
      • Oh, but never fear---Alimacani was here
      • That’s when we began multi-track!
      • Orange, yellow, purple, green, and blue
      • 2 weeks on,
      • Some track was off
      • We were confused, but oh no, not you!
      • You were our fearless leader-The Chief on her throne
      • You could get the faculty to do what ever you wanted
      • Without a grumble or a moan.
      • In fact, you had such a way of asking
      • And you did it with all your heart
      • That even if we wanted to say No
      • We were flattered and asked-” When do we start?”
      Donna Hulsey by Mrs. Jill Grens, former Alimacani Elementary School Teacher
      • You always took the time to thank us
      • With a handwritten work of art
      • Words that flowed on the page
      • That touched every heart.
      • Traditions, Rituals, and Routines
      • YOU established them all
      • Such as displaying our patriotism at these FALG RAISINGS
      • Oh yes, that was your call.
      • We were always busy,
      • Touching hearts and teaching minds,
      • But we always seemed to make room for fun
      • You knew it was healthy to unwind.
      • Remember the faculty talent show?
      • Line dancing up on the stage
      • Or when you rode up on the Harley
      • Oh that filled up another page
      Donna Hulsey by Mrs. Jill Grens, former Alimacani Elementary School Teacher
      • Change is important in order to grow
      • And we knew you would be moving on,
      • Onward and upward you went
      • But you were never really gone.
      • You left behind heart and soul
      • It’s infused in these walls
      • You can feel it every where you go
      • Up and down the halls
      Donna Hulsey by Mrs. Jill Grens, former Alimacani Elementary School Teacher
      • So now, as you graduate from the system
      • Be sure to pamper yourself-enjoy a good back rub
      • But Donna, leave your phone on
      • We can always use a sub!
      • We love you, we will miss you, but this is not goodbye.
      • Because Donna,
      • You will always be…
      • Alimacani!
      • Love Always,
      • Jill Grens
      Donna Hulsey by Mrs. Jill Grens, former Alimacani Elementary School Teacher
