Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Acosta, S.Ed.

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about me.  I am a NAVY veteran and proud to be. My Marion County Public Schools career began in 2004. My time in the district gave me the opportunity to work with students in many different settings including students housed at the Marion County Corrections, alternative programs (SRMI) and all other high schools in the county.  As time passed my responsibilities increased and included; but were not limited to; training and mentoring new paraprofessionals, providing teacher trainings on Modification vs Accommodations, providing scholarship and FAFSA trainings and orientations for students and parents.  I also developed and implemented several levels of the Algebra curriculum, and developed and implemented a new teacher-mentoring program where I helped new teachers acquire their certification and coached them. In all my years in the district I have held many positions, including Student Management (DEAN) and Test Coordinator.  Now I feel both excited and blessed to be at Howard as your child's math teacher.

My education includes a BA in Business Administration, a MA in Instructional Design and Performance Improvement, and a Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership.

I look forward to an amazing year. I know it will be challenging, but I'm sure that we can all work together to ensure the success of our kids.
