She has over 19 years of experience in both public and private education. Dr. Vazquez began her career in Puerto Rico, where she was born and raised. She spent many years in the classroom as a K-2 teacher holding a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. In 2011 she relocated to Florida. After serving as the Assistant Principal at Apopka Elementary, Dr. Vazquez joined the administration team at Meadow Woods Elementary as a school principal in 2017. She is now in the process of opening a new elementary school in the Lake Nona community.  Dr. Aleli Vazquez values continued education and, as such, has attended the following Harvard Institutes: Turnaround Leaders, New and Aspiring Leaders, Urban School Leaders, and Family Engagement in Education. She is also affiliated with the following institutions: Orange County Association of School Administrators (President-Elect), Florida Association of School Administrators, Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents (Legislative Chair), National Society of Leadership and Success, OCPS Mental Health Commission/Trauma-Informed Committee (Chair).  As a school principal, she was recognized in 2020 as the Orange County School Counselor Association Elementary School Principal of the Year.

Instructional strategies need to accommodate different learning abilities and meet the needs of individual scholars. Education needs to be engaging, creative, rigorous, and innovative. The school is the community's heart, and it is imperative to have strong bonds with the families and the community to lead scholars to reach their maximum potential.
