Terry Kulaga of Rockledge High named Assistant Principal of the Year

VIERA, Florida – Terry Kulaga, assistant principal of Rockledge High School, has been named Brevard Public Schools’ Assistant Principal of the Year. 

Ms. Kulaga has been a Rockledge Raider since 1995, first hired as a Social Studies teacher and then becoming the Dean of Students and now Curriculum AP for the last 21 years. She has served as mentor to countless new Assistant Principals. She is passionate about her school, community, and most importantly the success of every Rockledge student.

She played an integral part in bringing the Cambridge Program to Brevard County and Rockledge High School is one of 50 International Fellowship Centers in the world, and now a Cambridge Demonstration School. She can assemble a crew of volunteers for anything needed at the school just through the love and respect she has garnered from her current and former students as well as the community. She is regularly greeted around town with a boisterous "Raider Pride," undoubtedly from a former Raider that she has made an impact in their life.

We don't have many administrators in our district who have dedicated their careers to the same school and community for this amount of time. Ms. Kulaga is the epitome of The Rock, and what it means to Bleed Raider Blue.

Candidates for BPS Assistant Principal of the Year were nominated and evaluated based on their performance on:

  • Student achievement
  • Instructional leadership
  • Faculty development
  • Learning environment
  • Organizational leadership
  • Leadership development
  • Communication

Kulaga will go on to interview in the state competition for Florida Assistant Principal of the Year.
