Academy of Education
NMB Teacher Literacy & Community
The lead teacher of the Academy of Education is Ms. Melanie Mann. This academy runs through Early Childhood Education classes, where students are immersed in all aspects of education, from working with children, and acquiring teaching skills, to completing state and national certifications. Students in levels 2-4 are given the opportunity to intern at Greynolds Park and Ojus Elementary. Completion of all four levels allows these select students to receive a national certification in education and 9 credits from Miami Dade College or Florida International University. This certification allows the students to pursue careers at preschools, daycares, and after school programs and prepares them for a career in education.
