Richland Elementary Students, Parents, and Staff,
It is with great pleasure and excitement that I introduce myself as the new principal at Richland Elementary. I am honored to be a part of this wonderful community, which comprises exceptional students, dedicated teachers, and supportive parents. I am enthusiastic about returning to Richland Elementary, where I served as an assistant principal during the 2019-2020 school year. I can’t wait to reunite with everyone and cultivate new relationships with students, staff, and the community.
My educational journey commenced in 2013, when I began as a paraprofessional at Berkner High School. I then transitioned to teaching Physical Education at Dobie Primary, while coaching football at Berkner High School. Subsequently, I served as a third-grade teacher and Special Education teacher before assuming the role of Assistant Principal. I have been an Assistant Principal for the past four years.
I grew up in the area and attended Big Springs Elementary, MST, Apollo Junior High, and Berkner High School. I went to college at Texas A&M University, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology. I obtained my master’s degree in Education Administration from Lamar University.
My passion lies in fostering academic growth and helping students reach their dreams. I look forward to meeting with the Richland staff, community, and students to establish strong relationships and work together toward a bright future.
