Pamela Wallace Morse, NBPTS, Teacher at Pinellas County School District Hospital Homebound Program, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in secondary education.
Dedicated to offering quality education to sickly students, Ms. Morse has served as a teacher with the Pinellas County School District Hospital Homebound Program for the past 26 years. Utilizing both distance learning and one-on-one learning at the student’s home, she currently teaches mathematics and social studies to students in grades six through 12. Likewise, she is also certified to teach biology, chemistry, physics, ESE, ESOL and Latin. Alongside her primary teaching role, Ms. Morse is a supporter of the American Civil Liberties Union and a donor to the Southern Poverty Law Center. She previously taught as a private preparatory school for five years in the 1980s.
Highly regarded for her knowledge and experience, Ms. Morse was honorably named to the Who’s Who Among American Teachers in 2005 and to All USA Top 20 Teachers in the USA in 2001. A nationally board-certified teacher for 20 years, she is inspired by the tenacity of each of her students and feels honored to be trusted by her students, as well as their parents, in working to serve them. Ms. Morse attributes much of her success to the mentors she has had throughout her career trajectory, along with her natural acumen for leadership and teaching.
Originally desiring to be a medical doctor, Ms. Morse had an agreement with the administration at the convent she joined after high school to help her through her studies. However, after a change in administration, there was a shortage of staff and she was sent to teach in 1967. By way of serendipity, she fell in love with teaching. Ms. Morse went on to attain a Bachelor of Arts in biology from Aquinas College, a Master’s degree in biology from Purdue University and a Master of Education from National Louis University. Looking toward the future, she intends to continue teaching even if she chooses to commence her retirement, as contributing to education is what makes her spirit shine.
