Dr. Jospeh, you are such an amazing person. You strive to push your students to pass the limit. That's what makes you great because, you don't allow us to be average or just to know that the mitochondria is just the powerhouse of the cell, but you push us to be curious and learn more and deeper. Thank you for all you've done

Dr.Hermione is an amazing teacher she has been the best science teacher i've had, hands down. She find's ways to keep us focused she makes her lessons very interesting and fun.

aliyah Posted 5 months ago

Dr. Joseph is an amazing teacher. She makes learning fun by incorporating things that capture my attention and keep me attentive which is a minor difficulty of mine. In her class, I actually am learning something for myself and not just tests or quizzes, she also does a great job in making sure each student understands the concepts. She also is great and updating our grades which is highly important to me.

Anthony Sinanan Posted 5 months ago

Ms. Joseph is one of the best science teachers I've had so far throughout all of my years of school. Unlike other teachers she actually gets me involved with things going on in the class and I even like her and her class so much to the point where I actually do her homework, which is very rare for me.

Frankie Posted 5 months ago

I honestly cannot stress how much I love Mrs. Joseph. She's always there for all of us, even when we are struggling. She manages to make topics interesting, and provide information at the same time. I really enjoy her presence in general, she gives off loving and caring vibes.

Renee Posted 5 months ago

Dr. Joseph-Orelus is the best teacher i've ever had. If we didn't understand something she would take time out of her day to help a student.She always made sure we understood our work and is a huge inspiration to everyone. She is by far the best teacher at Lake Worth High.

Elana Posted 5 months ago

Congrats Dr. Hermione! Thank you for being a great teacher.

Daniella Posted 5 months ago

Dr. Hermione is a great teacher. She's always finding ways to help us and takes time out of her day if we need help. Her way of teaching is no where near boring which is a big thing for me because I tend to get distracted a lot. She has multiple jobs and is never late to grade or post assignments, always on top of what she has to do. She's not so serious with us so that makes it easy to ask for help and understand the concept of what we're learning.

Jermaine Davis Jr Posted 5 months ago

She is one of the most capable teachers in lake worth high. Her presence presents a strong skill gap between the teachers. Dr. Hermione undoubtedly graced this school with an skill set that fits with the current time. She plays a critical role in the mission of pushing lake worth high to lake worth elegant high. Let's hope that the students will achieve her charm as the critical Dr. Hermione is turning viable teens to critical adults.

I have known Dr. Hermione for almost 20 years. She is truly a model of a hard working teacher. I have to confess that I learned a lot from her as a teacher myself.

Congrats Dr. Joseph! You are so deserving of this honor. I remember your tireless dedication to developing activities for your students. NEVER once did I hear you say that a student didn't belong or that your class was too hard for them. Instead, you searched for ways to break down the content and differentiate for students that were struggling. Wishing you all the BEST!

Gino Haynes Posted 6 months ago

I am grateful for the diligence and hard work, Dr Joseph does each day to uplift, encourage, and motive my son to be a better person and student. Her class has not been easy for him, however she has place all the tools at his reach to be a better student. She has taught him to persevere in the face of challenge. He is a better student from having been in her class. I really appreciate her and the entire Lake Worth High School community.

Charles Gilbert Posted 7 months ago

Dr. Joseph stands out by how she treats not only her students but those she encounters in the hallway; the way she speaks with respect and sees them as young adults the kids immediately pick up on that and therefore respond better to meet and overcome their challenges rather than try to avoid them.

Margarita Spooner Posted 7 months ago

It does not take a long time to know Dr. Joseph before you realize that our students and education are a first priority to her. I believe that we are blessed to have such a wonderful and dedicated teacher in our school. Thank you Dr. Joseph!

John Weatherspoon Posted 7 months ago

I am so happy for Dr. Joseph who is my former student and now, my colleague and friend. She demonstrates her care for her students daily. Here commitment to their success is demonstrated in many ways. One of these is by the commute she makes from the county above just to teach the students at her alma mater. Dr. Joseph could give to many different schools along her route but chooses to sacrifice in order to give back to the community which gave to her. Bravo on this nomination Dr. Joseph. I am so proud of you.

Ruth Orelus Posted 7 months ago

I am happy to have her as my aunt she tries every one fair and is very kind and loving

Julie Rainford Posted 7 months ago

I have known Dr. Hermione for almost six years and throughout these six years she has proven to be an extremely dedicated teacher and friend and colleague. She is very compassionate towards her students and her main goal for them is becoming successful as a student and as an individual. I was a first year teacher when I met her and had no idea how to be a teacher but she took me under her wings and moved to from a chaotic place to a more stable place as a great teacher. She has mentored me in so many ways and taught me how to move and grow into the teacher I am today. She has taught me teaching strategies that I still use successfully. She has taught me how to be more understanding of the diversity in our students and how to become a successful teacher. She is always there to help critique a new idea I have for my lessons and never is afraid to say yeah or nay and for that I appreciate and respect her immensely. Her mentoring is one of the major reason I am one of the top Biology teacher at my school. She deserves all outstanding recognition as a mentor, teacher, colleague, woman and friend. Thanks Dr. Hermione

Dr. Lois Smith Posted 7 months ago

I was impressed with how Dr. Joseph go the extra mile to encourage her students, when she prepared survival packets(filled with chocolates, granola bar, water, etc.) for her students as they were preparing to take a school wide computer exam. It encourage me as her colleague to keep encouraging our students with little surprises.

Dr. Joseph has had a tremendous influence on me as a new teacher. My first year teaching I was lucky enough to have Dr. Joseph as my neighboring teacher and throughout the entire year (and years to follow) she has mentored me into becoming the educator I am today. She has shared numerous teaching strategies, explained various protocols, and each year she has built my confidence as a professional educator. Dr. Joseph is a teacher every student deserves and a colleague that is loved and appreciated. Thank you Dr. Joseph for all your support and have inspired me both professional and personally. Sincerely, Jill Grunwald

Dr. Hermion Joseph-Orelus is one of the strongest people I know. She is the most perfect her there is. She have the best smile & her outlook on life is amazing. Question: She just lights up the room! True or False ? Answer: True (Facts). She make's a bigger impact than she realizes and don't even know it! Her inside is even more beautiful than your outside (thats a compliment). I love the way she brings out the best in people. She is ALWAYS so helpful & our family/school/community/church is better because she is a part of it. Dr HJO inspires me. Nothing can stop her. I am a better person because of her. She has taught me so much just by being an example. I love the way she is. She is also a great parent. You can tell just by looking at how thoughtful her kids are. She has a great sense of style. I hope she is proud of herself, because I am! She is one of the bravest people I know & is so trustworthy; I always believe what she says. Everything seems brighter when she is around. She always have the best ideas & if she ever makes a mistake, she fixes it. Which helps make her a great example to others with her great leadership skills. She has amazing creative potential & I admire that she knows who she is. She is the reason why I am smiling today. She is gift to everyone she meets. Also, has a gift for making people comfortable. I enjoy spending time with her and I'm really glad we are family. I'm gratefull to be on here commenting & telling everyone how amazing she is.

Congrats to my sister-in-law Dr Joseph Orleus!!! You truly deserve this because you truly love what you do. Anyone can teach but it takes a special teacher to make a difference in their students in lives and that I know you strive to do everyday. I pray God continues to bless you and gives you the strength to keep teaching for as long as you can.

Nicole Lange-Figueroa Posted 7 months ago

Being new to Lake Worth High as a freshman this year was quite scary at first, since I was new to the crowd and did not know many people. But walking into Dr. Joseph’s class, I felt comfortable and welcomed. She not only makes class a comfortable environment, but something to look forward to every day. The passion she shows while she teaches and her concern for our understanding of the material allows me to know that I am truly learning and growing. Thank you Dr Joseph for continuing to give me a wholesome high school experience. I wish you the best in everything you do.

Jonnithan White Posted 7 months ago

Thank you for everything you have taught me so far, your an amazing teacher, and you deserve this.

Ms Joseph, This is the way I remember her. I still remember the time she came to our school (Lake Shore Middle) and made our Haitian student population's lives much easier. She inspired them to work hard, be respectful and go to college. I knew, someday, her dedication to help others and her devotion for education will pay off. Now it's the time to enjoy your success. Congratulations my friend, You deserve it!

Marie-Romie Alexis Posted 7 months ago

Dr. J, how I call her, is one of the most smart and inspiring colleagues I have ever had a chance to work with. She inspires all people from all ages she comes in contact with.
