About Ms. Declet
My name is Betsy Declet and I teach Language Arts (8th Grade) and Intensive Reading (6th & 8th Grade). I also teach an ELL support class (6th-8th Grade). I am a Charlotte County Public School Alumni, having gone to PCMS and PCHS. I started working at PCMS in 2015 as a Title 1 Paraprofessional. I left in 2016 to finish a bachelor's degree in social work. I spent an additional 2 years pursuing a master's degree in social work and working at a social service educational program. I decided to come back home to PCMS and am excited to empower young minds.
My social work education has taught me the importance of valuing people for who they are-- people. My teaching approach is that of empowerment and growth mindset. I believe that if we can reframe our setbacks as struggles within the learning process instead of failures, we can then grow. I also believe that a classroom should be a judgment-free, safe space where students can help guide the learning process. With my social work foundation and educational roots, I am confident that we can achieve our goals to not only rock the FSA but encourage a desire for life-long learning.
I am a huge supporter of parent/teacher communication. I am aware that students are away from home for nearly seven hours a day, five days a week, therefore the school is a second home for them. For this reason, communication between both the parents and the teachers can help set the students up for success.
