Choose Tallahassee winner welcomed by fellow educators

Tallahassee educators welcomed Loujean Nelson to Tallahassee at a luncheon hosted by Dr. Sally Butzin, founder of the Project CHILD instructional program. Loujean was a Project CHILD teacher in Chicago before her retirement, and several local CHILD educators gathered to celebrate with her.

Loujean and her husband Glenn submitted the winning video to the Choose Tallahassee Contest (choosetallahassee.com) that resulted in a year’s free rent and a host of special prizes to promote the joy of retiring to this wonderful community. The Nelsons are planning to settle here permanently.

Project CHILD (which stands for Changing How Instruction for Learning is Delivered), has been implemented in elementary schools across the country. Project CHILD is a unique system that employs team teaching, multi-year continuous progress, subject specialization, hands-on active learning, and the integration of technology.

TALL Program is Making a Big Difference

TALL is tailor-made for those who want to make a difference. It meets one day a week for eight weeks. The first’s week’s session is spent engaging in a variety of self-assessment exercises designed to identify your goals and values. The next seven weeks you are exposed to a wide-array of community programs that can potentially mesh with these goals and values.

These programs are in the areas of: public safety, local and state government, education, economic and business development, the environment, health and human services, criminal justice and the arts.

Participants learn: how community programs operate; who they serve; how they’re funded; and how TALL members can contribute to these programs, through volunteering, advocacy, or fund raising.

Glenn Nelson, pictured above at Public Safety Day, and his wife Loujean are the 2016 Choose Tallahassee contest winners! To learn more about the TALL program read the article here!

“Tallahassee is a special place to live” by Bill and Carol Boynton

What’s so great about Tallahassee?  We recently came to see for ourselves.

We were finalists in a contest sponsored by “Choose Tallahassee” aimed at attracting baby boomers to relocate to Florida’s state capital.

What did we find? We found a vibrant city filled with energy and enthusiasm.  We awoke to a downtown marketplace setting up across the street.  We drove along canopy roads. We walked hiking trails with people of all ages.  We wore shorts in November while friends were shivering in New Hampshire.

We found a city immersed in cultural offerings that on just one weekend featured opera at FSU, a German Christmas festival at a popular senior center, and a rock and roll jam at an antebellum plantation.  We discovered a city that treasures both its past (Mission San Luis) and its natural environment (Tallahassee Museum). We dined at a once shuttered utility next to a unique park that’s an urban model for others to follow But most of all, we found a community of welcoming and friendly people who love Tallahassee, who were anxious to share it with us, and who convinced us it’s a special place to live.
