Mrs. Mitchell has lived in Naples for 21 years but was born and raised in Lafayette, Indiana where she graduated from Purdue University with a degree in elementary education. It is also, where she met her husband of 21 years, Chris, and together they moved back here to his hometown where she was fortunate to teach at Naples Park Elementary.
Mrs. Mitchell taught there for one year before her and her husband welcomed their first child and made the decision that she would stay at home to raise their family. That allowed her to spend the past 15 years volunteering in her children’s classrooms, serving on their schools’ PTO boards and SAC committees, as well as the Superintendent’s District Advisory Council, and the Champions For Learning Connect Now project.
Nearly four years ago, Mrs. Mitchell decided to go back to work and obtained her real estate license. She learned very quickly the role that our schools play in the local economy. Often the first question she is asked by buyers new to the area is about the quality of education we offer here in Collier County. She is currently with Domain Realty Group and loves the challenge of finding the perfect home for buyers and the perfect buyers for her sellers.
Mrs. Mitchell truly believes in the mission and vision of our District and is so excited to get to work supporting our staff and students.
