Dr. Richard Dunkel has been in education since completing his Masters of Arts Degree in Education from Rollins College in 1992. He started his teaching career at Imperial Estates Elementary in Titusville, where he taught 5th and 6th grade for six years. Since then, he has been primarily at the administrative level in both Brevard and Orange County and has worked at public, private and charter schools. He had the opportunity to serve as Fairglen’s Assistant Principal from 2006-2011. He was then appointed Principal at Indialantic Elementary, where he led for four years. During that time, he earned his Doctorate Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Central Florida. In 2015, he was given the opportunity to return to “The Glen” as their Principal. For Dr. Dunkel, coming back to Fairglen was like coming home. Having been there before, he was well aware of the great things the faculty, staff, students, parents and entire community were capable of achieving. Dr. Dunkel truly believes that when they are all working together, there isn’t anything they can’t accomplish.
