Mr. Charles Feld
Mr. Feld began his teaching profession at Umatilla High School where he served as an ESE instructor and ESE School Specialist for over ten years. He coached multiple sports, both girls and boys JV and Varsity sports teams. While at Umatilla High School he also assisted many high school students with Drivers Education through Lake County Schools Behind the Wheel Driver Education program. In August of 2013 he was fortunate and was provided the opportunity to lead staff and students as an Assistant Principal at East Ridge High School, Clermont Fl. He worked at ERHS the next six years where he acquired many skill sets, gained knowledge and experiences to improve students, staff, and community. In his time at ERHS he worked closely with seniors (12th grade students) and staff improving graduation rates. He was responsible for and worked with great colleagues in the departments of ESE, Guidance, Social Studies, Science, and Athletics.
In 2019, he joined the Eagle family. He is excited to be an Eagle and continue working with the staff and students at Mt. Dora Middle School.
He enjoys moments when students, parents, and staff are able to make connections and create paths to success through relationships, use of student data, and relevancy.
A quote that is very meaningful and speaks to him that he often shares with students: Your goals do not determine your success, it is your commitment to the process, work ethic, attitude, and habits that decide what you achieve.
He looks forward to assisting and helping students, staff, and parents of the Mount Dora community.
He is a Mount Dora Middle School EAGLE!
