• My name is Elizabeth Stansel and I have the great honor to serve as principal at Oceanway Middle School. This year we are looking to “Lead the Way” in helping students build their leadership potential and discover their interests and abilities.

    I hold an M.Ed. in Educational Leadership from St. Leo University and both a B.F.A. in Journalism and a B.A. in Psychology from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. I taught in both middle and elementary schools, taught gifted endorsement courses for teachers, and managed federal grants. I have received numerous awards, including being an American Graduate Champion and Pollo Tropical Teacher of the Year. I have served as an Assistant Principal since 2014.

    I am married and a mother of two boys who graduated from Duval County Public Schools. In my free time, I enjoy my pets (two dogs and two cats), running and yoga.
