Dr. Neleffra Marshall, Principal

Dear Tropical Families,


I am thrilled to be at Tropical!    I am originally from West Virginia, but I have lived in Florida for over 35 years.  I have been with Brevard Public Schools for 27 years.


I started my career at Hoover Middle School as a Math and ESE teacher.  I went to Satellite High as the Assistant Principal of Discipline and then back to Hoover as the Assistant Principal of Curriculum.  From there, I moved to Edgewood as the Assistant Principal of Curriculum and finally to West Melbourne Elementary School for Science as the principal.  I have ten years experience as an assistant principal and ten years as a principal.


On a personal note, I have two grown children and six grandchildren.  I have moved to the area, and I am happy to be working back on the island.  My two priorities are safety and instruction.  I firmly believe that safety is number one and protecting instructional time is number two.


Please stop by, say hello and introduce yourself.  I am proud to be part of the Tropical team and look forward to meeting you and your children!  It’s going to be a great year!



Neleffra A. Marshall, Ed.D
