Living Our DPS Honoree: Joshua Pele

Sep. 16, 2021


Drama Teacher, Florida Pitt Waller

“Joshua Pele is always projecting the idea that learning should always be Fun, both in and outside of the drama classroom. Whether you are a student or a colleague, his positive attitude is contagious throughout the building. During remote learning and continuing this year, Mr. Pele created announcement videos using puppets that were both entertaining and informational. Mr. Pele also directed and produced a remote version of High School Musical Jr. that brought immense joy in a difficult year to those who participated and watched. No matter if it is in class or after school with the drama club or musical, Mr. Pele focuses on relationship and community building through fun games. Joshua Pele is also working hard this year to help launch the new Transformative Social Emotional & Academic Learning (TSEAL) curriculum at Florida Pitt Waller ECE-8 School.”
