Principal's Message

  • Dear Ventura Families, 

    It is with great excitement that I introduce myself as the new principal of Ventura Elementary! I was here five years ago as the assistant principal and am excited to be back home! My goal this year is to foster a safe and positive environment so that students learn and grow academically, socially, and behaviorally. I love to make learning fun, but still maintain high expectations. I believe that all students can learn and will work hard to assist teachers in meeting their learning needs.

    Along with our Dual Language Program, we will be offering instruction in health sciences. This course will be provided to students through their essentials block rotation. Your child will learn all about what it takes to become a health care professional.

    I will be communicating with you monthly through a digital newsletter via REMIND. You will have up-to-date information on school-wide events, parent nights, and important testing dates. I look forward to meeting you all!

    Principal Graham

  • Dear Ventura Families,

    My name is Deputy Medina, but my friends and family call me Jolly.  I started working at the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office in 1998 as a student worker.  In 1999, I became a full time civilian employee until 2002, at which time I graduated from the Valencia Criminal Justice Institute and became a Deputy Sheriff. During my time at the Sheriff’s Office, I have had the pleasure of working and assisting in multiple departments to include Records, Intake, Evidence, Patrol, Criminal Investigations and Community Services.  I was a detective in the Property Crimes Unit for 10 years, until June 2016 when I transferred to the School Safety Division.   

    As a School Resource Officer, I have worked at various schools, until 2018 when Ventura Elementary stole my heart, and I choose it as my home. GOOOO TIGERS!!!  Working in the school system has shown me a different side of law enforcement which has become my passion.   

    During my time off from work I enjoy reading, cooking, and going to the beach.  I truly live the “Salt Life” and that’s often where I am on the weekends.  I’ve been told I inadvertently tend to walk around with a serious face; but I assure you I am very approachable.  Behind the serious face, is a great smile, and amazing sense of humor.
