Angela Fuller, assistant principal at Palencia Elementary School, has been selected by St. Johns County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Joseph Joyner to be the principal of Durbin Creek Elementary School, replacing Sandra McMandon, who has been selected as the new principal at Valley Ridge Academy. Fuller’s nomination will be presented to the St. Johns County School Board at their June 15 meeting.
“Angela is the perfect match for Durbin Creek,” said Joyner. “She is a person of high character and extremely community-oriented. I know that she will be an energetic and creative leader who will continue the excellence at Durbin Creek.”
Fuller joined the St. Johns County School District in 2014 as the assistant principal at Palencia Elementary School. Previously, she served at Assumption Catholic School in Jacksonville as an assistant principal for four years and then as its principal for six years. She also has a breadth of experience as a classroom teacher in self-contained and full inclusion ESE and general education in middle school.
Fuller has a bachelor’s degree from Flagler College and a master’s degree from the University of North Florida. Fuller’s internship in college was completed in St. Johns County at Mill Creek Elementary in 1994; she went on to teach in Venice, Fla. and Florence and Sumter, South Carolina before returning to Northeast Florida.
“I am truly honored to serve as the next principal for Durbin Creek Elementary and continue the goals and excellence established under Ms. McMandon’s leadership,” said Fuller. “I am eager to begin working with the outstanding staff, parents, and community to ensure each child finds success and achieves his or her maximum potential. Let’s go Explorers!”
