Michael Singer, Talented & Tenured Teacher
By Dylan Rush, ACE Intern CSCS
As Coral Springs Charter School (CSCS) celebrates its 20th year of educational excellence, it honors and recognizes teachers who have been there since the very beginning.
One of those exceptional educators is Michael Singer, who teaches Economics, and AP Government and Law. He was born in the Bronx, New York to parents, who Singer says were “not very affluent but were very literate.” As a family, they would continually enjoy intellectual conversations. Singer says his family encouraged education, patriotism and a strong work ethic. That upbringing taught Singer to become the motivator and educator that he is today.
Singer is the advisor for National Honor Society (NHS), which he considers one of the school’s most distinguished student service organizations. He says, “For students to become a member takes a lot, it requires a 3.25 unweighted GPA and ability to tutor middle school students, as well as assist mentally and physically disabled children with sporting activities.”
Singer has hosted multiple events for his students and NHS members including street-cleanups and field trips for non-profit organizations like Feeding South Florida.
Singer reveals that he too has learned from students while working at CSCS, like how impressionable kid are and that if you make the right impression it will benefit them in the future. When he teaches, Singer makes sure to lecture using face-to-face communication. He says, “The student’s task of learning is like a job, they came to work that day and their job is to learn.” When instructing, Singer makes sure to put all his emotion and passion into his lesson plans, saying, “I live for my kids.”
It is the type of care and dedication demonstrated by teachers like Singer that makes CSCS such a great place for students and faculty.
