    Hello!  I am Lori Frodine the principal of Pinellas Park Elementary School. I am originally from Colorado. I lived and work in Houston, Texas. I have over 20 years of education and leadership experience. I am so excited to be part of the Bears family!  I believe all students deserve a great start in their educational journey. A good school leader has the responsibility to educate, nurture, and encourage all students, and  I look forward to working with the students, families, and staff at PPE.


    I love to travel and have been lucky enough to have explored many parts of the world. My husband and I took up scuba diving a few years ago and ventured to many islands in the Caribbean including Antigua, Barbados and Jamaica. I get so much inspiration from the ocean; this is why I was so excited to move here to beautiful Florida. I am also an avid reader and am always reading one book or another. I love reading YA and children’s books. As for family, I am mother to three wonderful rescue dogs, Molly, Finley, and Luna; although I also have over 500 wonderful students here at Pinellas Park!
