Ms. Susan Alvaro


I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work together with our truly amazing Azalea Middle Black Knight school community to create opportunities for our students to learn and grow each day.  As principal of Azalea Middle School, I have the joy of learning and growing with our staff and students. I recognize the value each individual student brings to our school.  We join together as one Black Knight family, stronger because of our diversity.  I appreciate the opportunities to get to know our students, learn their stories, and share this portion of their journey. 

I earned both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees at the University of South Florida; Go Bulls!  My undergraduate degree is in Exceptional Student Education, and my master’s is in Educational Leadership. I believe in the importance of continuous learning and the value of rich conversations.  I appreciate each interaction with our parents and guardians as we partner to shape the best school experience for your student.

Our Administrative Team is dedicated to serve our students, staff, and the community.  We have a passion for educating ALL young people as they discover their voice and begin to shape their place in our world.
