Assistant Principal Richard Mercadante

Hello North Fort Myers Academy for the Arts students, families, and community members.

My name is Rich Mercadante and I am honored to serve as Assistant Principal to North Fort Myers Academy for the Arts. I was born and raised in New York and moved to Fort Myers in 2004. I began my career in education as a Middle School sports coach and transitioned to an elementary classroom in 2011. I have been fortunate to serve as an intermediate classroom teacher, Peer Collaborative Teacher, Dean of Discipline, and Learning and Leadership teacher for the School District of Lee County. I believe positive relationships are the key to student growth and organizational success.

My wife and I spend most of our free time chasing our toddler around the house. We enjoy spending time with family and friends and love to go out to local restaurants. I am an avid sports fan… Go N.Y. Giants and Knicks!

I am excited to serve and support the North Fort Myers Academy for the Arts community. Please stop by, call or email anytime.
