Welcome to Gregory-Lincoln Education Center



    As principal of Gregory-Lincoln Education Center for the Performing and Visual Arts, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school. I am absolutely honored and ecstatic to serve as the principal of GLECPVA.   It is a privilege to be a part of a community where students, parents, and teachers care for each other and work to build the community required to support scholars in their academic, fine arts, and social pursuits.

    GLECPVA is in the heart of Houston’s Historic 4th Ward, in Freedman’s Town and the up and coming Midtown areas.  Our campus offers a unique blend of both our community’s past, present, and future.  We embrace our rich communal history and look forward to all that the future holds.  It is my greatest pleasure to boast about our fine arts and academic programs.  At GLECPVA our scholars are afforded the opportunity to engage in instruction from eight genres of the fine arts disciplines; art, theater, dance, music, piano, band, choir, and culinary. They are also able to explore core content that has been designed to put them on a college, career, or military track. 

    Our scholars will have every opportunity to learn and succeed every day.   Here, we challenge each scholar to be his or her best self, academically, socially, and in their chosen fine arts disciplines.  We have amazing educators who spend countless hours preparing engaging and targeted lessons for our scholars.  Our teacher leaders utilize instructional best practices to ensure that scholars meet their individual performance goals.

    In the work of leading GLECPVA, I’ve learned that the spirit of a panther is unwavering, and it is this same spirit that continues to propel our campus forward.  For the 2018-19 school year, we are starting a rEVOLution!  We are revolting against all things mediocre and embracing all things extraordinary.  We as a family recognize that at the heart of rEVOLution is love.  A love for our scholars, the contents we teach, and the community we serve. 

    I look forward to our partnership in this rEVOLution!


    With gratitude,
