Congratulations on Teacher of the Year!
Mr. Brunetti was nominated by his colleagues for this honor, and then they took an anonymous vote, deciding it. They celebrated with cake and later in December, there will be a lunch in downtown Sarasota. He’s able to enter the running for Teacher of the County by submitting a resume, and letters of reference.
Mr. Brunetti is the AP Language and Applied Communications teacher at Suncoast Polytechnical High School. He taught AP Language, and English 1, 2, and 3 at Booker for three years prior to Polytech and came to SPHS so he could work with serious students that were dedicated to learning and had an interest in the material. He had also taught in Costa Rica and Panama, and both had similar curriculum to Florida schools. He has great aspirations for the Polytech students, describing them as “Serious, respectful, and hardworking”, with his goals being to improve all reading and writing skills, prompt reading and literature, and to introduce more diverse reading selections.
