Each day our #1 priority at Kate Bell is to provide a safe and fun learning environment while focusing on our mission statement: "Through collaboration, mutual respect, and rigorous instruction, Kate Bell Elementary educates all PK-5th grade students for college, career, and life." I began my career in education as a kindergarten teacher at Kashmere Gardens Elementary in 2000. I have taught kinder, first, second, fifth, and had the honor to open a new arrival center for sixth, seventh and eighth graders new to the USA. I designed instruction and trained teachers as an Instructional Coach for Math & Science. I was an Assistant principal for seven years and was recognized as the district's August 2020 Excellence in Leadership recipient for my turnaround work and leadership. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Houston - Downtown. I hold a Masters degree in Education Administration from Prairie View A&M University as well as a Masters degree in Curriculum & Instruction also from Prairie View A & M University.
I encourage you to join the CougarPRIDE as we LEAP to success!
