Principal, Dr. Patti Folino
Having been in education for over 25 years, I cannot think of any other job I’d rather do. I am fortunate to work with amazing teachers and staff while inspiring a love for learning with our brilliant students. In addition to my teaching career, I am very proud to be the mother of two wonderful children who have grown way too fast. I love my job and continue to be fascinated with the new research and developments in education and learning.
My family moved to North Sarasota when I was 19 years old. I’ve remained in the area except for the 2 years while I was in Gainesville attending UF. Some of my hobbies include running, reading, and finding engaging ways we can inspire our students to be their best selves. Tuttle is an amazing place to be and I feel so fortunate to be part of our school community!
