HOGANSVILLE HOME NEWS - THURSDAY, AUG. 28, 2003 PAGE 5-A Excited About School in Hogansville EDITOR: am Debra Dokken, grade at iansville naentary I come to from and Florida. I from High ge I'm mar- to David of New I have one niece, Keeble, beautiful kitten, Mischka T. Katt. and music are my passions in life and I could- tier sharing them in any other place than HES! DEBRA DOKKEN Are at the Center of the System Jacqueline Jones, the Instructional Specialist for School. I am dedicated to the belief that students are at the center of the educational system. I act on the premise that all students can learn. I believe in high stan- dards and expectations for all students. I am especially fond of the following quote by Plato: "You know that the beginning is the most important part of my work, especially in the case of a young and tender thing; for that is the time which the char- acter is being formed." Integral to my phi- losophy of education is the notion that eachstu- dent is a unique individ- ual and must be treated with respect. The rela- tionship between student and instructor is grounded in mutu- al trust. It is also my belief that the ultimate purpose of edu- cation is to produce individuals who strive for excellence for themselves, their peers, and their community. In this way, students enter the rest of their lives knowing that they can make a difference. I have been an educator for 12 years. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from LaGrange College. I received my Masters of Education from Columbus State University. I received my Education Specialist degree from Troy State University, Phenix City, Alabama. I began my teaching career as a long term substitute at Hollis Hand Elementary where I taught first grade. I then gained a full time employment and began teaching fourth grade at South Side Elementary, which is now, Cannon Street Elementary. I taught fourth grade there for many years. Last year, I worked as registrar and administrator at Gardner Newman Middle School. This year, I am thrilled to be the Instructional Specialist at Hogansville Elementary School. I absolutely love working with elementary school age students and I am looking for- ward to having a wonderful year. JACQUELINE JONES Keep it Local: Where's the Four Poems? DEAR EDITOR: I've been with your paper as a correspondent and don't claim to know anything abolJt putting a paper together. What I do know is that readers like local news best. Two weeks ago I turned in a write-up and picture and when the paper came out the last two weeks, a lot of the pic- tures and articles were of Manchester. I understand when we don't have enough news I don't mind fillers so you have decent paper, but I think our news should come first in our paper. I recently turned in four poems and they haven't been printed yet. I understand it can't be found.
