Principal's Message

Principal Gangwisch and his familyIt is with great excitement that I am looking forward to an amazing year as the new Principal of Dover Shores Elementary. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with high performing students, extremely dedicated staff and a supportive parent and school community.

I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty-five years after my first career as an athlete and Finance Supervisor for UPS.   I have worked with students ranging in age from Pre-Kindergarten through College. I have been a P.E. teacher, Math teacher of the year for Seminole County, High School Special education teacher, College Professor of Business Law, National Independent Schools Principal of the year, Principal for the Orlando Catholic Diocese as well as Seminole and Orange County Public Schools.

My initial goals are two-fold: a strong school culture and instructional leadership to move every student each day towards whatever their life experience will be. We will focus on the skills our students need to be successful in school and in life.  I do believe authentic literacy and math logic are common skills that binds all of these together, as our students will be reading, writing, speaking, reasoning and solving problems every day in all of their classes. I believe these skills are necessary for every student to acquire in order to be successful in their future endeavors.  Every Falcon can and will be successful.

In my life Family comes first.  I have a beautiful wife from Venezuela who is my boss and I have amazing children from post college to my youngest girls in 4th and 5th grade.  I value the feedback from our Parent Partner community and staff. Please join or PTA and/or SAC to be  part of helping us grow.

Together we truly will SOAR this year!


Mr. G
