Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Tina Buscemi

Hello and welcome to my webpage!  I'd like to take a minute to introduce myself...

I am very proud to say that I attended Sallie Jones as a child myself when my family moved to Punta Gorda many years ago. I then attended Punta Gorda Middle and Charlotte High! Go Tarpons!! I earned a dual Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and Exceptional Student Education from the University of West Florida. I later returned as an alumna of UWF to receive a Master's degree in Educational Leadership. I have been teaching in Charlotte County since 2012. Over the years I have enjoyed teaching children in first, second and third grades. In 2019, I rejoined the Sallie Jones family as a Lead Teacher. I now enjoy working closely with teachers and students each and every day! 

As a mother of three children myself, who are also being educated in Charlotte County public schools I am highly invested in education.  When I am not at school you can usually find me at the local pop warner fields or high school fields cheering on some of my favorite athletes! 


Personal Mission Statement:

My mission as a school leader is to inspire a love for learning in a safe, nurturing, and loving environment where each child is provided the opportunity to grow socially, emotionally, and academically to the best of their ability.  I believe in focusing on the whole student.
