My name is Travis Lee, and it is my pleasure to serve as Principal at Rymfire Elementary School. I have spent the majority of my 20-year career in the Flagler School District. I attended college at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, where I earned a B.S. in Education. I began teaching Health and Physical Education in the Marion County School District where I also served as an assistant football, wrestling, and track coach.
I then had the opportunity to come to Flagler Schools as Dean of Students and an assistant track and football coach. Later, I attended Nova Southeastern University, where I earned my master’s degree in Educational Leadership. This afforded me the opportunity to become Assistant Principal at Flagler-Palm Coast High School where I completed the last six years of my 10 years in that position. In 2015, I had the incredible opportunity to join the Rymfire family as Assistant Principal.
Having the opportunity to continually serve our students, families, and teachers has truly been rewarding. The smiles on the faces of our Roadrunners when they have academic success or feel comforted by our various acts of kindness, serve as a constant reminder of why I joined education. At Rymfire, we strive to improve student achievement of every student, and I look forward to being able to impact the Rymfire family through student mentorship and serving as academic support for our wonderful faculty and staff. Go Roadrunners!
I began my career as a second grade teacher at Wadsworth Elementary School. For the next 12 years I taught under Paula St. Francis at Rymfire Elementary. During my teaching career, I taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, both General Education and Exceptional Student Education (ESE) classes. In addition to teaching, I also provided Title I tutoring, assisted a dance club, taught Summer Reading Camp for our third grade students, and organized curriculum for 21st Century’s summer program. During the the summer months, I also traveled North Florida as a Florida Reading Initiative (FRI) trainer, training teachers in high-yield, research-based literacy strategies.
My career as an educational leader began when Dusty Sims hired me as an Assistant Principal for Flagler-Palm Coast High School. I oversaw student services, the dean’s office, facilities, and our Multiple Tiered System of Supports (MTSS). This year I continue my service in public education as an Assistant Principal for Rymfire Elementary School, my home. I continue my passion for behavior by overseeing the dean’s office, facilities, student services including guidance and ESE, as well as instruction.
I believe every child will succeed, and education needs to be tailored to individual needs. I also believe that behavior needs to be taught, just like academics, and that every child requires different supports. I promise to support all students’ learning, both emotionally and academically, and support our dedicated teachers and families in making all students’ dreams a reality.
Hi! My name is Abra Seay and as a lifelong resident of Flagler County, I've had the pleasure of serving the families of Flagler Schools for 22 years. I began my teaching career at Bunnell Elementary School, teaching Pre-K through 2nd grade for 13 years, in both the general education and exceptional student education classroom. During that time I also served as an Academic Coach and Inclusion Specialist. For the next five years, I served as the Coordinator of Early Childhood Education where I led Flagler Schools VPK and Pre-K ESE programs at our five elementary schools.
I then transitioned to the district curriculum department as a Teaching and Learning Specialist and spent two years implementing district-wide curriculum, providing professional learning, and restructuring our K–12 MTSS framework. Most recently, before joining Rymfire Elementary School, I spent two years as an Assistant Principal at my alma mater, Flagler-Palm Coast High School.
In addition to my professional life, I'm very busy with my beautiful family that consists of my husband, five children, and three grandchildren. We enjoy boating, sports, traveling, and spending time together.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year full of learning and fun where all students at Rymfire Elementary will be provided an optimal learning environment and the supports they need to be successful scholars!
