It is an honor to introduce myself as your principal of Lakeview Fundamental Elementary School and welcome you to this extraordinary school community. I can assure you that I share in this school community’s commitment to caring for your children each day while providing them a world-class learning environment at the Little School with the Big Heart.
I am an experienced elementary teacher and building principal, but in addition to my role as an educator, I am first and foremost a mother and wife.
The 2021-2022 school year will mark my 22nd year in education. I am a home-grown Pinellas County student and leader attending Oakhurst Elementary, Largo Middle and Largo High.
My role as an elementary principal, where I have been most fulfilled in my life’s work, provides me the chance to work collaboratively with teachers daily, while also remaining connected to young students learning and growing in the classroom. I firmly believe that every child can excel and that the partnership between home and school builds confidence in students to use their powers to shape their future and the future of our community and our nation.
I wholeheartedly welcome your conversation and positive input. Let us always keep our students as the primary focus of our work. I look forward to connecting with you and celebrating our collective successes during the 2021-2022 school year.
Mrs. Tijuana Baker
Lakeview Fundamental Elementary School
