Dr. Angela Schroden worked for Hillsborough County Public Schools for fifteen years. First, as a classroom teacher at Gibsonton Elementary in both 2nd and 5th grades. During her tenure as a teacher, she was awarded over $7500 in grants for literacy projects, as well as a Fulbright Memorial Fund Scholarship.
