  3. 3. •Kendale Elementary Executive Summary • Kendale Elementary is located in suburban Miami and is part of the fourth largest school system in the country. Founded in 1969, the school is situated on eight acres in a middle- class, predominantly Hispanic community. The school currently serves Prekindergarten through 5th grade children and has an enrollment of about 520 students. The proximity of the school to nearby Baptist Hospital and Miami-Dade College has resulted in working parents from the hospital requesting their children attend Kendale Elementary. As a consequence, almost 30% of the students attending Kendale do not reside in the community, but are attending by their parents’ choice. Additionally, Kendale has a full-time self-contained Gifted program called Quest, which results in many students from outside the school boundaries attending the school. The ethnicity of children at Kendale is: 17% Caucasian, 76% Hispanic, 4% Black and 3% other. Approximately 15% have limited English proficiency (ELL); 15% are Special Education students (SPED). Kendale Elementary has a staff of 91 full and part-time employees, including 42 instructional classroom and resource teachers. Before and after school care services are provided for more than 225 students of working parents. The Kendale family is committed to providing education in a caring, nurturing atmosphere. Through the hard work and support of our students, staff, parents, and community, the school has been the recipient of numerous awards acknowledging its many achievements, including the Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, the Florida Governor’s Sterling Award (the first school in the county to be recognized), the Intel/Scholastic’s 21st Century School of Distinction Award (one of only 20 schools recognized nationwide), and the Blue Ribbon Lighthouse School Award (one of 23 in the nation recognized that year).Kendale participated in the International Center for Leadership in Education’s Successful Practices Network and was recognized as a Model School. Kendale Elementary was recognized by the Florida Department of Education with the Five Star School Award. This recognition of excellence for exemplary parental and community involvement was a testament to all of its stakeholders. The many prestigious awards that Kendale has earned exemplify the school’s quest for continuous improvement and the result of the school family’s commitment to providing the best possible educational experiences for those who attend the school. The school’s focus is on continued high academic expectations and fostering excellence in all that it strives to do. The staff has achieved close cooperation between the home and school which is essential to providing quality education. The involvement of the entire school community cultivates a harmonious and productive learning environment.
  4. 4. OUR MISSION: • We are devoted to producing successful, well-rounded citizens who will excel in a diverse, global society, equipped to meet the challenges of tomorrow. We will prepare our students to succeed in middle school and beyond, by equipping them with a rigorous academic foundation, while instilling the core values of respect, responsibility, kindness, cooperation and support. OUR VISION & VALUES: • The vision of Kendale Elementary is to instill in our students a respect for oneself, respect for others and respect for the power of knowledge and learning while providing them the tools necessary for success in our ever-changing world. • Respect, Responsibility, Kindness, Cooperation and Support
  5. 5. •Ms. Meltons Classroom Fourth & Fifth Grade • For the last couple of months, I was able to shadow Ms. Melton for my service learning. She stresses to the children how important reading is. Other subjects that she addressed were Math and Writing.

  7. 7. •Involved Activities Throw it out of the window! • In Ms. Melton’s 4th grade class, the kids were learning about Expository writing. In order to encourage the kids not to use such repetitive words in their essays, Ms. Melton developed the throw it out of the window concept. Over used words in their essays such as big, small, said, and etc. are to be replaced and used with other synonyms. Her reasoning behind it is to expand each child’s mind and vocabulary. When the kids explained to me the concept, I thought it was great!

  10. 10. •My Experiences • I learned a lot from both the teacher and the students. Ms. Melton was a great mentor and was always on task. Through this, I learned how to develop a lesson plan, help kids with their writing skills, the importance of an accident report, and last but not least how to monitor the students behavior and progress. Everything that I have learned through my service learning has helped me get a taste of what the teaching field will be like for me in the future. I enjoyed doing my hours with such a great group of kids and one day I hope to be an outstanding teacher just like my mentor Ms. Melton.
