Principal's Bio

Dr. Abell, Principal

To the Annette Winn Community:

I am Dr. Sherritta L. Abell, Annette Winn's Principal. I am so excited about my new position here and the opportunity to work with such a dedicated staff, hard-working students, supportive parents and caring community. Everyone has welcomed and encouraged me, making my transition seamless.   

 About Me:

I have been a teacher and/or an administrator for 18 years at both the elementary and middle school levels. I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Elementary Education from Florida A&M University, my Specialist’s degree in Educational Leadership from Fischler Graduate School of Education and Human Services, Nova Southeastern University.  My doctorate in Organizational Leadership is also from Fischler Graduate School of Education and Human Services, Nova Southeastern University, in Orlando, Florida. I have conducted research in helping beginning teachers, mentoring, professional development, adult learning, human resource development, and classroom management.  My doctoral dissertation was titled, A Program to Train Veteran Teachers as Mentors for Beginning Teachers

I am happily married to Christopher Abell, Sr. I was born and raised in Live Oak, Florida.  I am a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. I enjoy traveling, mentoring, coaching basketball, reading and dancing, although, I have two left feet.

My Vision:

Because of my belief that every child possesses unique and special qualities that contribute to making the world a better place, I plan to nurture our Annette Winn students’ academic, social, and emotional development. I want to help students meet their potential by providing an environment that is safe, by supporting creativity and by inviting students to share ideas that contribute to learning. I see Annette Winn as a place where students learn to value the differences in others and develop a desire for life-long learning.
