Mrs. Teresa Love, Principal

I was raised in North Tampa and attended Chamberlain High School. I received my B.A. from the University of South Florida and began my teaching career at Lake Myrtle Elementary in Lake Padgett, in Land O’ Lakes. While at Lake Myrtle, I taught all grades and subjects, Kindergarten through fifth grade. I later transferred to Denham Oaks Elementary School in Lutz. While at Denham Oaks, I earned my M.A. in Educational Leadership from Saint Leo University. My first Assistant Principal position at was at Deer Park Elementary in New Port Richey. Two years later, I became the Assistant Principal at Quail Hollow Elementary in Wesley Chapel. Two years after that, I was asked to be the Principal at Cypress Elementary School in New Port Richey. In 2010, I had the amazing privilege of opening Odessa Elementary! I consider it a true honor to be a part of the Pasco Educational System, and especially to work at Odessa! My wonderful husband and I live in Land O’ Lakes, and enjoy spending time with our families and our large furry children.

Mrs. Vicki Rowland, Assistant Principal 

I’m proud to be the Assistant Principal of Odessa Elementary and I feel fortunate to work with the amazing students, families and staff that make up the Odessa Elementary School community. My educational career began by working in Early Childhood Education in Pinellas County and I later went on to earn my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, graduating from St. Petersburg College. I joined Pasco County Schools in 2005 as a teacher at Sunray Elementary School.

After many years of teaching, I went on to pursue my master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Saint Leo University. I was the Assistant Principal of Hudson Elementary and joined Odessa Elementary as the Assistant Principal in 2016.

I’m a native Floridian and I love spending time at the beaches and parks with my family. My husband John and I have one adult son.
