“I love working at Tampa Prep because of how welcoming and caring the community has been to me and my family. Our three kids are Tampa Prep graduates and excelling in college. I have felt at home since my first year and I feel the same way 13 years later. At Tampa Prep I have the freedom to be myself, be creative in the classroom and have the opportunity to teach and learn from wonderful students, faculty and administrators.”Santiago CarreñoWorld and Classical Languages

“I was searching for a school that had an innovative approach to teaching and learning. I was particularly excited by the way that technology was integrated into the classroom to support student engagement, not just for the sake of using technology. Lastly, I felt that my energy and approach to teaching were valued and embraced by Tampa Prep. Who doesn't want to feel that way in their workplace?”Laura Bridges-PereiraAssociate Head of the Middle School
“Tampa Prep encourages its teachers to dream big even though it's not a "big" school. The student culture is kind, open-minded, inclusive, and artistic. Students don't get lost in the crowd here. There is a place for every student to find a niche and be celebrated at Tampa Prep. I love seeing students find a passion whether it's rowing on the crew team, volunteering in Key Club events, singing in a chorus, or the myriad of opportunities we offer here at Tampa Prep.”Andrew HoyFine Arts, Chorus
