Mrs. Flor Carter

Dear AOEC Families,

I am very excited and honored to be Principal here at AOEC. Just over 15 years ago, I joined the Waukegan Public Schools District as a first year teacher fresh out of college. In that time I have grown both personally and professionally which solidified my beliefs regarding education. I truly believe in the mission and vision of AOEC and value its importance within the community. I find great joy in working with the staff and students in Waukegan. 

In addition to serving as the Principal at AOEC, I am married with two fantastic children. I enjoy spending time outdoors with family and friends, listening to audio books to develop both personally and professionally, and staying physically active.
