Today's Choice for Tomorrow's Future

Assistant Principals

Mrs. Shaffer

Prior to becoming an educator, I worked at a local theme park in Human Resources and Organization Development, but longed to get into education. I began teaching math at East Ridge High School in 2003. During that time I also served as an Academy Lead Teacher and built a Peer Mentoring Program. In 2009 I became an Assistant Principal at Mount Dora High School where I was able to combine my love of education with my previous HR experience, helping both students and teachers in their educational journeys. In 2014 I was excited to join the Grassy Lake family and serve as an AP here in my own hometown.

I received my B.S. in Psychology from Stetson University, M.A. in Human Resources from Rollins College, and Ed. Specialist degree in Educational Leadership from Stetson University. I live here in Clermont with my husband Craig (a high school math teacher), my daughter Abigail (also a current GLES Star), and toddler twins Jack and Lily. I have absolutely fallen in love with our GLES families. Every day I look forward to working with our students and striving to keep Grassy Lake’s tradition of excellence.
