Setting goals helps increase your motivation, gives you purpose and direction, and helps you organize your time and resources. We encourage you to set academic and life goals throughout the year. To assist with this we have provided this Goal-Setting Worksheet.
After you click on the link above to access your Goal-Setting Worksheet, select file, then download, and complete it along with your parents or at home support system. Once completed, please turn the worksheet into your Educational coordinator. Now you are ready to get started on your classes!!!
Pivot Charter School Ft. Myers Staff
Kelsey Johnson - Principal / Athletic Coordinator
I have a Master in Education from FGCU, a TEFL certification from the Trinity College of London, and am certified in English 6-12, ESL k-12, and ESE k-12 through the state of Florida. I have been in the education field for 14 years as a teacher of English, ESL, and ESE as well as Head Teacher and Dean Of Students in Japan, Spain, Hong Kong, Florida and California. Pivot welcomed me into their family community in August 2010 and I have been in love with this school and its vision ever since.
In every country that I have lived in, I have begun or taken part in some type of volunteer work whether it be building houses in India with Habitat for Humanity, beginning an environmental club in Japan and petitioning the town government to begin a recycling program, working at a refugee camp in Hong Kong or joining beach clean-ups. Serving both my community and my students is my passion. My goal is always to help each student find success and satisfaction in the learning journey. In my spare time I like hiking, paddle boarding, dancing, traveling, healthy living, and speaking foreign languages.
Lead Educational Coordinator III- Stephanie Maier
I am Certified in Social Science, which covers your World History, American History, Geography, Economics, and Political Science courses. I have lived all over the world in thirteen countries, training and teaching people about government. Some of my greatest adventures have been living in Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Cambodia, Haiti and throughout The Middle East. I love traveling, hiking, reading, writing and helping students to dream big and set high goals for themselves. I was born and raised in Ft. Myers, and I believe that if I can reach my dreams, so can all of you!
