Juan Ito

Juan "Juan Ito" Gill comes to us from Miami-Dade County Schools in Florida.  Juan shares his story starting from his early years growing up in Cuba to today as a 2nd grade teacher at Gulfstream Elementary School.  He teaches at a school with amazing leadership where the cooperative spirit of the staff nurtures a love of learning in their students with the intention of creating productive citizens.  Not only is Juan a Rock Star in the classroom, but outside, as well, as the singer for the band Franklin’s Wheel.  During our time together Juan and I not only talk about kids and teaching, but we even talk about and listen to a song he wrote for one of his student’s who tragically passed away.
