Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Mr. Day and I will be your child's third grade teacher this year for all subjects. I am excited about the upcoming year and the opportunity to work with each of your children. This will be my 8th year at Greenway Elementary but my 1st year back after a 3 year break from teaching. I taught 4th and 5th grade for 7 years and I spent the last 3 years working as a marketer for a home health care company. I am excited to be back teaching at the place that feels like home.
It is my sincere belief that every student is capable of learning and making growth. However, each student is different and will grow in different ways at different paces. I will do everything I can to help identify what is most effective for your child to give them the best chance for success this year and the years following. As a teacher, we can only do so much in the short time we are given to instruct your child daily. It is extremely important that you as the parent get involved in the education of your child and reinforce what we are teaching them here at school. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns that you may have about your child's education.
A little information about who I am. I have been a Marion County resident most of my life and I am a product of the Marion County School Systems. I attended South Ocala Elementary, Osceola Middle School, and Forest High School. I graduated from Central Florida Community College (now College of Central Florida) with an AA degree and The University of Central Florida with a BS degree. I have been married 12 years and have 2 children (6 and 4). I am also a proud owner of 2 dogs, 5 chickens, and a snake (very small kenyan sand boa). I love sports. I am big Gator, Yankees, and 49er fan (I know that my teams are all over the map...its a long story). I enjoy running and have competed in many 5k's, a triathlon, and even and 1/2 marathon.
I look forward to getting to know you and your children this year. Together we can make it an awesome year!
