Four new principals take the helm at east Hillsborough schools this year. They are:
Durant has worked for Hillsborough County schools since 1975, when she started as a teacher at Twin Lakes Elementary. She held several teaching positions until she was appointed principal of Lincoln Magnet Elementary in 1999. She has also served as principal at Young Middle Magnet School.
Johnson started her career in Hillsborough County as a physical education teacher at Lincoln Elementary in 1989. She went on to teach at Turkey Creek and Randall middle schools and most recently was assistant principal at Randall.
Wimberly's first job in Hillsborough County was as a teacher at Lopez Elementary in 1988. She went on to teach at Tampa Palms and Hunter's Green and later became principal at Twin Lakes, Heritage and Sulphur Springs elementary schools.
Sullivan, who had been an assistant principal at the school, was promoted Tuesday by the School Board.
