Northport K8 School master kindergarten teacher Melody Nieves and her students give a ringing endorsement to FAU student intern Amanda Bean. Miss Bean completed two years at Indian River State College and then two years in the Education Department at Florida Atlantic University. She has recently completed her student internship at Northport K8, first easing her way into the classroom, then interning as the full time teacher and then easing back out of the classroom successfully. Mrs. Nieves and Miss Bean complement each other’s teaching styles and the experience has been positive for students, the intern and the teacher. Mrs. Nieves said, “From day one, I was grateful to have the opportunity to work with Miss Bean. She was eager to jump in and assist my kindergartners in every way. She has been a blessing!” Pictured are Mrs. Nieves, far left, Miss Bean, far right, and the class.
