Principal's Corner

  • Welcome to the High School for Law and Justice!  I’m Dr. Steven Shetzer, and I’m honored to serve as the principal of this esteemed institution.  I began my career in education as a social studies teacher at Westbury High School in 2004, where I taught everything from World Geography to AP United States History and AP Government.  In 2011 I moved to Roberts Elementary as the Magnet Coordinator and then Assistant Principal.  In 2012, I was given the opportunity to become the principal of Kolter Elementary School, where I was until I moved to Pershing Middle School in 2016.  I became the principal of HSLJ in January 2024.

    I am originally from Southern California and moved to Texas over 20 years ago.  I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Political Science from California Baptist University.  I attended the University of Houston and graduated with a Master’s in Education and a Doctorate in Education.

    I enjoy the challenges of education, working with teachers, parents, and students, and the opportunities to make learning happen for each student.  I look forward to working with you as your HSLJ principal.
