Lopez Appointed Assistant High School Principal

Westminster has appointed Jannett Lopez as assistant high school principal effective July 1, 2023. She will replace Teresa Torralbas who has capably served in this role. Torralbas has been named the new head of school at Kendall Christian School and will assume her new position this summer.  

Lopez joined Westminster in 2020 as a high school social studies teacher and was quickly promoted to director of signature programs and innovations. In addition to her teaching schedule, Lopez designed the framework for Westminster’s signature programs and was instrumental in securing dual enrollment partnerships with local colleges and universities. In 2022, she earned the Teacher of the Year award for her commitment to excellence. 
Before joining Westminster, she spent nearly 20 years in public and private schools in the classroom and in administrative roles. Most recently, she served at Gulliver Prep as a learning specialist to multiple subject areas including AP Politics, AP Economics and AP U.S. History. Previously, she supported curriculum development, supervised teaching strategies, and served on a variety of administrative teams for Miami-Dade County Public Schools. Her extensive experience and focus on collaboration, innovation and excellence makes her ideally suited for her new role.  
“The Westminster culture facilitates an authentic Christian environment, and I feel extremely blessed and humbled to be a part of it,” said Lopez. “I look forward to mentoring and supporting teachers, collaborating with parents, inspiring students, and working hand-in-hand with the administrative team to enhance our school community.”  
Lopez earned a master’s degree from Nova Southeastern University and a bachelor’s degree from Florida International University. She and her husband Edwin have two children, a son, Eejay ’28, and daughter, Eevee ’34. 
Westminster Christian School, located in Palmetto Bay, Florida, is a private, college-preparatory school for children from preschool through twelfth grade.
