Dear Aloma Eagles,
            I am extremely excited to join the wonderful school and community as your principal at Aloma Elementary.  This past year I served at the district office as the Director for Secondary Curriculum and Instruction.  Prior to that, I served as the principal of Hiawassee Elementary School where we proudly enjoyed many achievements and celebrated countless student successes.  My background includes experiences at both elementary and middle school levels, including gifted and general education experience.
            My personal philosophy is “every student deserves the opportunity to be globally competitive”.  As such, I have strong passion for ensuring that all children in the American public school system are adequately prepared to be globally successful in the 21st Century. Our newly rebuilt school affords us an educational environment that fosters technology-rich, college and career readiness skills, as we help students explore, discover and nurture their individual talents in order to prepare them for personal success in the future. 
I have an equally strong passion for nurturing learning for my staff, including providing teachers with professional development growth opportunities.  It is important as adults that we continue to grow our own expertise and model for our students the importance of being a life long learner in an environment of constant change.  Some of the educational shifts we are preparing for this year include the Florida Standards, a new state assessment, and digital mandates. Parental involvement is an integral part of educational success.  I look forward to the relationships we will build we soar for success in the 2014-15 school year.
Mrs. Jennifer Gramzinski, Principal
