Pine Island Florida
Congratulations to Summer Dooley for being chosen to represent the Greater Pine Island area as the 2016 MangoMania Queen. Summer was born and raised on Pine Island. She comes from a commercial fishing family of three generations and five generations in Lee County.
Her parents are Mike and Rhonda Dooley. Her dad has been a fisherman for over 45 years and her mom worked at Pine Island Elementary for 28 years. Her brother, Shane is a commercial fisherman and owns his own business, Dooley Charters. Summer always knew she wanted to teach, she attended the University of Central Florida and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education. Summer taught in Orlando at Camelot Elementary for three years and decided to move back home, where she was fortunate enough to get a teaching position at Pine Island Elementary School.
This is Summer’s fourth year teaching at Pine Island Elementary School. She is currently teaching third grade and she loves it! She enjoys being outdoors, fishing, boating, going to the beach, spending time with her family and especially her nephew Dalton and her 20 pound cat, Oliver.
