Plato Academy Palm Harbor

Plato Academy Palm Harbor Thunderbolts,

This coming school year will be my 10th year with Plato Academy and I am beyond excited to return as the next Principal of Plato Academy Palm Harbor. I look forward to reconnecting with families, teachers, and students whom I have known for years as well as meeting the new families, teachers, and students who have joined the Plato Palm Harbor family.

I grew up in the Pinellas County area and graduated from St. Petersburg College with my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with Reading and ESOL endorsements. I began my teaching career at Plato Academy Palm Harbor. While teaching, I pursued my Masters in Education focusing on Middle School STEM at the USF St. Petersburg. I then became the Assistant Principal of Plato Academy Palm Harbor. It was during this year I found a love for Administration and pursued my Masters in Educational Leadership at USF St. Petersburg.

My vision for Plato Palm Harbor is to continue to build upon its strengths and collaborate with families, staff, and Mrs. Keller to assist all students in reaching their fullest potential in a safe, supporting, challenging, and enthusiastic environment.

We strive for Αρετή (excellence in Greek ) to be a habit not just an act!

Go Bolts!
