Superintendent of Schools
With great honor and pride I am privileged to have been selected as Superintendent of Point Isabel Independent School District. With twenty-two years of experience at all levels of education coupled with eight years in private industry, I bring a variety of background knowledge to the position. My work in education spans from that of a special education teacher, Assistant Principal, Principal and the most recently as an Administrator for Region One Education Service Center focusing on school improvement and compliance.
My background experiences bring a wealth of knowledge in areas such as educational leadership, school finance, compliance, school improvement, curriculum, technology integration, parent and community involvement and policy development. In addition to my extensive experience in the education field, I have eight years of managerial experience in the private sector, which provides new insight for my theories on how we manage schools and leverage human and fiscal resources to increase performance.
My career experiences span three states and a foreign country, contributing to my diverse background. The success of Point Isabel ISD is a reflection of a dedicated, caring community that prides itself in producing world class citizens prepared for success in the 21st century. Building on the legacy of excellence established by all of those who have contributed to the district's prestigious history is a challenge I am well prepared for. My ultimate career goal since locating to Texas in 1998 has been to become the Superintendent of Point Isabel Independent School District.
Demonstrating Tarpon Pride, while enhancing systems for each student to maximize their achievement and become civically responsible members of our community will be the focus for the coming year. With clear, compelling goals driving decisions toward continued success for all students in the PIISD community, I look forward to the opportunity to lead the district.
