Arlene Gebber of Somerset Academy Boca Named a 2018 Florida Charter School Champion

Boca Raton teacher Arlene Gebber has been named a winner of a 2018 Florida Charter Schools Champions Award at the recent Florida Charter School Conference in Orlando. She is a fourth grade teacher at Somerset Academy Boca, 333 S.W. Fourth Avenue, Boca Raton.

Gebber won the Champions Award in the category of charter school teacher. The award was one of 21 presented by the Florida Consortium of Public Charter Schools (FCPCS), the leading charter school membership association in the state.

Gebber was nominated for the award by principal Daniel Shourds, who said, “She requires all her students to learn and her learning gains are through the roof.”

For the seventh consecutive year, FCPCS received nominations in several categories, including charter school board members, charter school leaders, charter school teachers, charter school pioneers and charter school preferred partners. Winners received their awards at an evening awards reception and presentation.

“Each year, we honor exemplary teachers, school leaders, governing board members and pioneers who represent the very best in the Florida charter school movement,” said Robert Haag, FCPCS President. “This year, we received more nominations than ever.”
