    Mary P Hallinan, Principal Welcome! I am very pleased to be principal at Carrillo Elementary School, located in the historic East End of Houston! I grew up in the beautiful area of Upstate New York and after graduation from Elmira College with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Elementary Education, I relocated to Houston, Texas to begin my career in education.

    My first teaching position was at Cage Elementary in the historic East End of Houston. During my time at Cage, I taught 4th Grade ESL and 1st-5th grade Language Arts. During this time, I obtained a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration and Mid-Management Certification from the University of Houston. In January of 1993. I coordinated the opening of Carrillo Elementary, built as a relief school to relieve overcrowding at nearby elementary schools. At Carrillo, I have been the Technologist, Lead Teacher, Assistant Principal, and since 2000, Principal. Read more...
