Assistant Principals

Mrs. Stacia Werner

It is an honor and a privilege to join the Bullpup Family this year as one of your Assistant Principals at Tavares Elementary. I am honored to join such a hard working faculty and staff, supported within this beautiful and welcoming community.

I have been a proud educator for Lake County Schools since 2014, having moved here from the Tampa Bay area. Within this time, I have held a variety of different instructional coaching and professional development roles as I grew in my career towards administration. Most recently, I have been an Assistant Principal at Beverly Shores Elementary in Leesburg.  

I believe in the importance of serving others and look forward to seeing how I may be of service to our entire school community. With a focus on making sure all persons on our campus feel successful, I will work hard to help ensure that Tavares Elementary continues to thrive and grow happy, healthy and academically successful students within a nurturing environment. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions, suggestions or make connections, as we journey down the path of a great Learning Adventure this year!
