Congratulations to Mrs. Lakeitha Black, new Principal of the Tangelo Park Elementary School!
Mrs. Lakeitha Black moved to Orlando from Miami, Florida and became a 5th grade science teacher at Tangelo Park Elementary on January 24th 2008. In 2011 she was selected teacher of the year at Tangelo Park Elementary. Coaching and supporting the professional development of teachers and increasing student achievement was her primary focus as curriculum resource teacher, instructional coach, testing coordinator, and lead mentor of an all-girls mentoring organization, Young Ladies of Distinction.
As she began to explore her School-Based Administration career she was appointed one of the five assistant principals at Dr. Phillips High School which is the feeder high school for Tangelo Park Elementary School students. Many of the students at Dr. Phillips High School clearly remember Mrs. Lakeitha Black as she their fifth grade teacher and mentor.
On June 19, 2018, she became the proud principal of Tangelo Park Elementary. Mrs. Black is new to her principalship position, but not new to Tangelo Park Elementary.
Welcome back! We wish you continued success!
