Angela Hritz, Davidson Middle School, was named the
Okaloosa County School District Teacher of the Year
at the annual Banquet held at the Emerald Coast Conference Center
on Thursday, January 31, 2019. Angela teaches
World History at Davidson Middle School where
she has been for over 20 years.
She obtained a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership in 2008.
Her husband, Alec, is retired from the Air Force and together
they have five daughters. Hritz feels the most rewarding part of
her job is the connections she makes with her students.
She is known for incorporating ELA standards within her
social studies classroom and she keeps her students engaged
by using Socratic Seminars to deepen their understanding and
develop communication skills in a respectful environment.

"Teaching is a balancing act between challenging
students and empowering them," said Angela.
"As a former student and now a teacher of 20 years,
the Okaloosa County School District continues to play a prominent
role in my life.  I have spent my entire teaching career at
Davidson Middle School, and I'm blessed to have a job that I love so
much! Teaching World History allow me the opportunity to embrace
different cultures. I've traveled to several places that we study, such as the
Roman ruins and Stonehenge, and I bring that experience into the classroom.
It's an honor to represent Davidson, and it's humbling to be
acknowledged by the Okaloosa County School District."


Congratulations to our FBLA students! 
Davidson has not only created its first chapter
of FBLA but we entered our first competition and aced it.
We competed in only two categories but dominated both fields.
There are only 4 middle schools in District one and only two in
Okaloosa County, ours and Bruner.
We represented Davidson as only our students could do.

The Business Etiquette category which is an online exam,
had seven entries and we placed 1st through 4th and 6th place.

Savannah Martin-1st place
Georgia Jones-2nd place

Isabella Parker-4th place
Stacy Fields -6th place

We also competed in Critical Thinking where the students
were given a case that they could study for 15 minutes.
They then had five minutes to cite the case
and their solutions and all of them had to speak.
We placed 1st through 3rd out of 5 places.

1st place Team         

Savannah Martin

Christian Dooley

Mya Mason

2nd Place Team

Georgia Jones

Leda Jernigan

3rd Place

Allyson Chambers

The 1st place team for Critical Thinking and the top four in Business
etiquette will compete at the State competition in Orlando in March.
If you see these students please congratulate them. They had no
time to work on the competition and still made us Panther proud!
