On August 31st, Fort Pierce Westwood High School hosted St. Lucie Pubic Schools’ Teacher of Year Mr. Jeffrey Johnson as the guest speaker for the Speakers Bureau Series.
Mr. Johnson spoke about the power of education and its importance. He recounted his experiences of growing up poor and shared that he lived in the projects. This distinguished and eloquent speaker also communicated with his audience the fact that he was told he would not amount to anything and that life was not easy for him. However, he emphasized that because of his determination and perseverance to get a good education, he now represents the District and carries the title of “St. Lucie Public Schools Teacher of the Year.”
