Flagler County (Florida) Superintendent James Tager announced LaShakia Moore will become the third principal in the history of Rymfire Elementary School, according to a news release on May 30. She replaces Barbara Sauvelpahkick, who retires June 15.

On making this decision, Tager said, “LaShakia Moore is a dynamic instructional leader and brings a depth of curriculum, and exceptional student education knowledge. She has the interpersonal skills to take this next step in her career.”

Moore is a 2004 graduate of Bethune-Cookman University, where she earned her Bachelor of Science in exceptional student education. She earned a Master of Science in educational leadership from Saint Leo University in 2017.

LaShakia Moore began teaching at Rymfire Elementary in 2004, later becoming a teacher support colleague. In 2017, she transitioned to the Flagler Schools District Office as a curriculum specialist.

“I am grateful for this opportunity to return to the school from where I spent so many great years,” Moore said. “Barbara Sauvelpahkick did a great job in assembling a team of educators there and I look forward to reconnecting with the Roadrunner family. I encourage parents, teachers, and staff to stop by throughout the summer.”

Moore’s first day will be June 18.
