Mr. Daniel Torres
It is with great enthusiasm that I write this letter of introduction as the new Assistant Principal of our beautiful new Lake County campus, Lake Pointe Academy. I am truly honored to accept this new role and look forward to continuing to work with our stakeholders, in an effort to advance the achievement of all our students on campus. Working together, I am confident that we will continue to provide our students with a truly enriching school experience.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education in 2008 from Florida International University, and furthered my education in 2015 when I received my Masters in Educational Administration. During my thirteen years in education, I served in various roles, such as elementary and middle school teacher, resource instructor, and most recently, as the instructional dean and ELL coordinator at Sawgrass Bay Elementary.
My goal as Assistant Principal is to provide the leadership that will facilitate a school environment committed to the safety and success of ALL students. I am confident that Lake Pointe Academy will be a place where students learn and grow, both academically and socially.
Go Blue Jays!
