Mrs. Shelley Markgraf - Principal

"I am honored to be the principal of Caloosa Elementary, a school dedicated to excellence. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay with a B.S. in Elementary Education in 1989. Upon graduating from college, I accepted my first teaching job at Lehigh Elementary, in Lehigh, Florida. I taught first grade for two years and then transferred to J. Colin English, where I taught first and second grade for ten years. While I was at J. Colin English, I accepted a Reading Specialist position. I worked with children of all ages who had reading difficulties and provided professional development for teachers. When the principal of J. Colin transferred to Colonial Elementary in 1999, I followed her there and became a Curriculum Specialist. In 2002, I transferred to Caloosa Elementary to become the Assistant Principal and I have been here ever since. I have enjoyed being the principal at Caloosa for the last five years. It is a privilege to work with such a dedicated staff that makes learning a priority. Thank you for entrusting your children to us."
