Meet The Teacher

Mrs. Nuzzi

Mrs. Nuzzi discovered her passion for teaching in 2002 after moving to Florida from New York. Her journey began after filling in at her son’s preschool, and then being asked to stay on as the lead teacher in his classroom. She went back to school to continue her education earning a National CDA, and Director’s Credential.

In 2012 Mrs. Nuzzi joined the dedicated and wonderful staff at the Academy teaching the Jr. Kindergarten class. Mrs. Nuzzi truly loves educating, empowering, and working with young children.

She lives in Lake Mary with her husband Rich, her son Joey, and her two dogs Lily and Rain. In her free time, Mrs. Nuzzi enjoys spending time with her family.

What Parents Like You Have To Say

"The teachers REALLY care! I can't say that enough. It is everything. I HIGHLY recommend this place. They are flexible and the kids come out so advanced. I will miss them dearly when my son leaves there after kindergarten, but as soon as my daughter is old enough, she will be there!"

"This school is AMAZING. They have gone above and beyond to exceed my expectations. We miss the staff tremendously. I find comfort in knowing I have found a place for my 1 year old to experience and enjoy just as much as his big sister does. "

Christa S.

"We have had a child at Academy of Excellence for almost six years and plan on doing so for another three more at least. I’ve always said that this isn’t just a school- it’s a family. It’s more than just a school because not only is the learning top notch, but the kids acquire important life lessons and how to value all those around them."
