Liberty Pines Academy’s
Administrative Team

Traci Hemingway


I would like to formally welcome all our Wolves to Liberty Pines Academy. We are a school that is Ready to Teach and Ready to Learn! Throughout my instructional career I have had the opportunity to serve as an educator since 1998 with experiences in Fulton County, GA; Fairfax County, VA; St. Tammany Parish, LA.; and Pasco County, FL. After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education and certification in Specific Learning Disabilities through Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia, I taught third grade in Georgia until I relocated to Florida in 2000. I continued my studies towards a master’s degree in Reading and a certificate in Educational Leadership from the University of South Florida. Throughout my educational experience I taught grades third through eighth grades, Support Facilitation in grades third through fifth, Literacy Coach, Assistant Principal, and Principal. I strive to be a servant leader in our community. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work with the amazing staff, students, families, and community members of Liberty Pines Academy.
