Greetings! I am a native of Tampa, Florida and attended Florida State University for my Bachelor’s degree. Upon graduation I began my career in education in Jacksonville, Florida serving as a High School English teacher. I then went on to obtain my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University. I have served in numerous roles from classroom to teacher, to Founding Principal of a Charter School. My mission is to ensure every student I encounter receives a world class educational experience that will prepare them to become global competitors. I am a Husband, Father, and Educator, and all three provide the purpose for the work that I do here while I’m on this earth. I am extremely honored and proud to be the Assistant Principal here at Cleveland Avenue, and I aim to make an impact on the lives of every student I encounter. My mission is to continue in the legacy of success and excellence, and I look forward to what’s next for Cleveland Avenue Elementary. I look forward to working with together with each of you this year! 


    Educationally yours,

    Mr. Lamar Billups

    Assistant Principal
