Principal
     I am originally from Pennsylvania, where I grew up in a small town outside of Pittsburgh. I received my Bachelor's of Science degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.   I moved to Brevard County in 1987 after teaching for one year in Baltimore County, Maryland. I taught at South Lake Elementary in Titusville for 12 years. I received my Master's degree in Educational Leadership in 1993 from the University of Central Florida. My family and I moved to Marietta, Georgia for 2 years and I taught 4th grade in Kennesaw for Cobb County Public Schools. Upon our return to Florida in 2000, my family and I relocated to Merritt Island.  I started at Audubon Elementary in 2000 teaching 5th grade.  I taught 5th grade until 2003 when I was appointed Assistant Principal at Audubon. In 2009 - 2010, I was Assistant Principal at both Audubon Elementary and Challenger 7 Elementary in Port St. John.   In the summer of 2010, I was appointed Principal of Audubon Elementary. I graduated with my Doctorate in Educational Leadership in 2013 from the University of Central Florida. I am happily married to Don Paniale and have 2 beautiful adult daughters.  One is a Florida Gator.   Go Gators!
