Message from Ms. Smock


Berkner High School Students, Staff, Parents and Community,

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I introduce myself as the new principal at Berkner High School. I am excited to rejoin this remarkable community and look forward to working alongside you to create an environment where every child feels successful both academically and socially.

My entire career has been proudly serving the staff, families, and communities in Richardson ISD for 22 years. I began my journey as a classroom teacher and instructional specialist at Richardson West Junior High School. Then I was an assistant principal at Richardson North Junior High and Berkner High School.  I have had the privilege of being the principal at Parkhill Junior High School for the last 11 years.

I look forward to transitioning to my new role and am excited to connect with our students, staff and community.
