Diane Reid-Goolsby (Mrs. Goolsby)
    Assistant Principal

    Welcome FPE students, parents, community members and stakeholders to the 2017-18 school year.  My name is Diane Reid-Goolsby and it is my pleasure to be joining Fruitland Park Elementary School as your new assistant principal.

    I have served Lake County Schools’ students for twenty-five years—eleven in elementary and fourteen at the middle school level.  I taught third grade at both Eustis Heights Elementary and Triangle Elementary from 1992 – 2003; and then sixth grade at Tavares Middle School from 2003 – 2013.  I served as grade level chairperson at both levels.  I also taught Kids College during the summers of 1992-1994.  In March of 2013, I was appointed as assistant principal at Tavares Middle School where I served three and a half years.  I worked at Oak Park Middle School last year, 2016—2017.

    I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Central Florida and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from National Louis University.  Prior to earning my Master’s Degree, I earned my National Board Teacher certification as a Middle Childhood Generalists.  I maintain my Gifted and 300 Hour ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) Endorsements.
