• Greetings Families, Friends, & Students. My name is Mrs. Charlotte Shepherd. I have been a teacher in Lake County Schools for 20 years. I am also a graduate of Lake County schools before attending college at the University of Florida. I taught most of my career at Seminole Springs Elementary before transferring to the middle school level. I am so pleased to be settled in at Umatilla Middle since I have lived in the area for 30 years. I have always had rescue animals of some sort. Presently, I have 4 dogs, a 150# pot belly pig (who has his own bedroom!), and 2 horses. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you all to help our students be the best they can be.
