Where your child's future begins!

Principal Message

Principal Each day I hope to inspire my students to become well rounded individuals.  Not only by challenging them with rigorous curriculum, but also focusing on their manners, self respect, and respect for others.  I strive each day to promote a positive learning experience for each child, to spark learner enthusiasm, and to provide a strong foundation for lifelong learning. I believe that teaching needs to be about modeling, manipulating, singing, dancing, building, exploring, and sharing.  Children are more apt to construct knowledge at a deeper level when engaged in hands-on experiences that stimulate the senses.  The classroom comes alive with learning, when both the teacher and students are actively involved.

I began my career in education in 1985 when I became a second grade teacher in Houston Independent School District.  I’ve also held positions as  Lead Teacher, Assistant Principal, Principal and Lead Principal.  I attended Texas A&M in Commerce Texas where I earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree.  In addition, I hold a Masters of Education and Doctorate degree for Texas Southern University.
