Lora Braucher
School Superintendent

Mrs. Lora Braucher has dedicated her life to serving. Lora brings accomplishments and experience as a successful manager and administrator of curriculum to Chemawa Indian School. She is a Veteran of the US Navy. After completing her Bachelor's Degree with a major in Political Science, she entered the field of education teaching high school American History in the Lake County School District, a culturally, socially, linguistically, and economically diverse school district in central Florida of over 40,000 students.

Recognized as one of the top three district finalists for Rookie Teacher of the Year, she was motivated to have a more profound impact on student achievement and attained her Master's Degree in School Administration. She was quickly selected to be an Assistant Principal, specializing in curriculum. During her tenure, she was appointed to four secondary schools which saw significant academic growth. In the spring of 2014, she was acknowledged for her commitment, dedication and influence when selected as the Assistant Principal of the Year for the Lake County School District and recognized as one of the Top Assistant Principals in the State of Florida.

Lora was attracted to Chemawa by its rich culture and traditions, the dedicated staff and the opportunity to serve students through both an academic and residential program. She recognized a rock-solid foundation for developing an educational platform to deliver graduates prepared for the near and distant future. Her design for the future of Chemawa Indian School includes excellence in academics, arts and athletics.

"I believe that I have been called to serve the students at Chemawa. I personally feel very privileged to be a part of the tradition and heritage here, as well as to work with the dedicated staff. My intent is to ensure that we find success in every student that enters our doors."
