Derrick Estes, Principal
My name is Derrick Estes and I have the privilege to be the new principal at James H. Law Elementary Dual Language Academy where our focus is putting children FIRST. We promote and develop positive and respectful relationships with our students, their families, and the community through effective communication and collaboration.
Our school motto:
Commitment to Excellence - in a caring, cooperative,
purposeful and success-orientated environment.
I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Houston-Downtown and my Masters in Educational Leadership and Policy from the University of Texas-Arlington. I am currently pursing my Doctorate in Educational Administration from Texas A&M -Commerce.
At Law Elementary, the teachers and I promise to create a safe, warm, caring environment with a rigorous curriculum. We are confident that we can meet the needs of students to create an exemplary professional learning community that soars! Please take the time to visit our school’s website and view our various programs that are offered to our students. If I can be of assistance to you, please contact me. My door is always open to you.
