Denise Nancy Aber is a Seventh-Grade Language Arts Teacher for Broward County Public Schools. She utilizes her vast knowledge in the instruction of strategies for studying and learning for children when teaching five classes for more than 29 students, and creating a unit guide for teachers. She pinpoints a major career highlight as her receiving the prestigious Broward Education Foundation grant; another being when one of her students won the Broward County Family Literacy award, because she was one of 13 out of more than 5000 students. Ms. Aber is also responsible for overseeing areas concerning the Internet, fact hunting, and comparing and contrasting, and for listening to audio to improve note-taking processes, and instructing vocabulary, taught within the context of a book. Renowned as an educator and instructional strategy expert, Ms. Aber has also published poems in the UK. Ms. Aber is a committed life learner who always finds engaging ways to improve herself as an educator and to keep her students’ needs met. She enjoys interacting with her students and recognizing students with opportunities such as Florida Young Scholars and the USAA’s student recognition program. In addition, Ms. Aber feels that by continuing her education and attending professional development opportunities whenever possible, she has been able to set an example to others. Even if no service points or money is involved, she will take her time out of her busy schedule.
Ms. Aber is proud of her affiliations with Pi Lambda Theta, and Sigma Tau Delta International English Honor Society, and she has received a Broward County Muse Award, and been nominated for the Teacher of the Year award. Moreover, Ms. Aber has received an Award of Academic Merit from the University of Miami, and been inducted into Cambridge Who’s Who. She has garnered a reputation of distinction for her outstanding efforts over the course of a successful career, and her additional honors and accolades include the Broward Education Foundation Adaptor Grant, the Broward Council Teachers English Muse Award (2001), the Award of Academic Excellence as granted by the University of Miami Graduate School, and the 13th Annual Edition of the Dean’s List. The published poet has had her work featured in a number of publications. Her poems include “My Muse Had Been Silenced Once Again,” a component of Eternal Portraits Winter, “To See Things As They Are,” “Elevating Notes of Rhythm and Glory” from the Noble House Labours of Love, and “In Fleeting Moment,” a piece that was included in The Best Poems and Poets of 2003. Her work was also included in “The Sound of Poetry.” Because she has long felt that she was born to teach, she declared that she wanted to become a teacher to her middle school instructor. Ms. Aber is a staunch supporter of free and fair public education, and states that no business has business in education. Ms. Aber changed political parties, leaving the Republican Party to join the Independent Party, because she loves her students and does not see them being taken into consideration. Some of her favorite quotes to live by include Napoleon Hill’s: “Whatever the mind of a man can conceive and believe, it can achieve,” and Ralph Waldo Emerson’s: “What you do speaks so loudly I cannot hear what you say.” When offering guidance to those looking to become successful in her field, she advises that they “not enter the field for money, but a passion for helping children mature into our future critical thinking and compassionate nation.”
