Principal Christy Graham

Greetings Lakeside Parents and Community stakeholders.  My name is Christy Graham and it is truly my pleasure and honor to become Principal here at Lakeside Junior High School and to join you in continuing the rich history of academic excellence that the school has been known for, for so many years.

My 19 years of educational experience have all been here in the state of Florida. I moved to Clay County in 2001, when my husband was still active duty military and was assigned to NAS Jax.  I began my career as an ELA teacher at Green Coves Springs Junior High for 8 years and then ventured into Virtual Education and joined FL virtual school as a High School English teacher for 5 years.  But I missed the face to face interactions with my colleagues and students and came back to Clay County as an Administrator in 2013, and for the last 7 years I served as both Assistant Principal and Vice Principal at Oakleaf Junior High School.

My vision, as your school principal, is to provide leadership that will continue to facilitate a safe school environment that will foster high student achievement and success both academically and socially for all students. I am a firm believer that the key to achieving this vision is accomplished through a close partnership with faculty/staff members, parents/guardians and community stakeholders. Working together as a team, all things are possible. 

Please know that my door is always open! I look forward to meeting everyone and working together as a team to continue the great Lakeside tradition of academic excellence.
