Erin Fiallo, Principal

Dear Kimbell Cougars:

I am Erin Fiallo, the newly appointed Principal of Kimbell Elementary School.  I am honored to have the opportunity to a part of a school with such a rich tradition of education!  

I am a Tampa native and have been dedicated to the field of education for more than thirteen years. My educational experiences range from paraprofessional, classroom teacher, instructional coach, district trainer, and Assistant Principal for the last six years. I have my masters from Saint Leo University and a specialist degree from USF.

I am a huge Buccaneers and Lightning fan!

In my spare time, you can find me cooking, cuddling with my pup- Bodie, at a theme park or traveling. I am excited to bring my skills as an educational leader to Kimbell Elementary and to work with you as a partner in education to prepare students for lifelong success.   

With my goal of continuing the tradition of excellence here at Kimbell Elementary School, I am committed to always exploring new ways to meet the needs of all students and to effectively communicate with parents and community members. I look forward to meeting with parents, students, community members and staff throughout the year to identify specific goals in the areas of student achievement and school culture. Working collaboratively as a team, I am committed to helping each child reach their full potential.

My passion has been and always will be educating students.  With that in mind, you can expect that I will work diligently with teachers to make sure our students are exposed to curriculum and instruction that is both engaging and challenging.

In closing, please know that my door is always open to you. I heartily welcome your conversation and positive input throughout this year. Let us always keep our students the primary focus of our work. I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Kimbell Elementary meet their goals and have a successful school year!

Dylan Tibbetts, Assistant Principal

Hello Kimbell Cougars;
My name is Dylan Tibbetts, and I am the new Assistant Principal here at Kimbell.  I am thankful to be here at this amazing school, where I have heard nothing but positives about our students and staff.
I started my career in Maine as a Physical Education teacher for 6 years.  During that time I spent time as athletic director, a coach, and team leader.  I spent a year Assistant Principal at a K-8 school, 504 case manager, and athletic director before moving to Florida.  I received my masters degree from The University of Maine in Orono in 2019.  I have spent two years here in Tampa at Shaw Elementary, and 2 years at Sulphur Springs Middle School.
I enjoy almost every sport out there, and will start by saying I am a Lightning fan! My biggest sports team is the Dallas Cowboys, it has been a rough 25+ years now.  I enjoy catching Bucs games with my wife, going to any theme park to find a roller coaster, or spending time at the beach with my dogs Hunter, and Bailey.
I am excited to be coming to Kimbell this year to share the skills, and experiences I have had in education.  My forte has been in behavior management.  I believe if we can get kids on the right track with their behavior, we can get teachers, and students to reach their full potential in the classroom.  I also believe teachers need to work as a team to share strategies, and collaborate to have a successful Cougar team.
Please know I am here for our kids, and our staff.  I want to keep our team strong no matter what challenges are thrown our way.  I am here for everyone, parents included.  Without support at home, we cannot be successful in school.  I am always here to help, lend an ear, and I will do whatever it takes to make Kimbell a fantastic place to be.
