Dear Sawgrass Bay Families,
I am so excited to begin the 19-20 school year as an assistant principal here at Sawgrass Bay Elementary. I would like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Andrea Nelson and this is my 15th year as an educator. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana and later my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Stetson University. Prior to joining Sawgrass Bay, I have served as an elementary school teacher (grades 1, 3, 5), Reading Specialist, Learning Resource Specialist, District ELL School Specialist, and the District MTSS Program Manager for Lake County Schools.
I currently reside in Clermont with my husband Brian, our 4-year old daughter Tatum, and our two dogs Riley and Tressel.
I am truly honored to be a part of the Sawgrass Bay Family! It is so wonderful to have an opportunity to be a part of a team with so much heart, passion, and determination. I am so excited to begin this school year!
