Dear Huffman Elementary School Community,
It is an honor and privilege to introduce myself as the principal of Huffman Elementary School. I can assure you that I share in the school community’s commitment to caring for your children each and every day while providing them with a loving and productive learning environment that has been a part of HES in years prior.
The 2021-22 school year marks my 16th year in education. I have been a teacher, Instructional Coach, Assistant Principal and now am honored to continue my career as a Principal. Since graduating from the University of Houston- Clear Lake with my Bachelor’s Degree and Lamar University with my Masters in Educational Leadership, I have served the communities of Galena Park, Dayton and Huffman in various educational roles. Although I have always felt at home in the classroom, it is in my position as an Instructional Coach and Administrator where I have felt most fulfilled. It is then that I have been given the opportunity to work collaboratively with teachers on a daily basis, while also remaining connected to the students learning and growing within the classroom. I firmly believe that every child can and will excel and that the partnership between home and school is how students will thrive the most.
In addition to my role as educator, I am first and foremost a wife and mother. My husband, Nicholas, and I grew up together in La Porte and have been married 14 years. Our son, Ty, is 11 years old and is a 6th grader at Huffman Middle School while our daughter, Taylor, is 5 years old and is a Kindergarten student at HES. As you can see, Huffman ISD is a place I am lucky enough to work at but is also a place I am proud to send my own children to for their education!
Throughout my time in Huffman ISD, and specifically at Huffman Elementary School, I have been given the privilege of learning about the community and the core beliefs and values that are within our district. Huffman Elementary will continue with the tradition of excellence that has occurred in previous years and I am committed to continuing with the great things that have already been established.
Parents and community members, I look forward to visiting with you all throughout the school year. Please stay tuned to our campus website and Facebook page for important dates such as “Coffee with Administrators,” Open House, and other fun events to come. To our students, I cannot wait to see you all soon as we start our 2021-22 school year!
In closing, please know that my door is always open to you, whether that is truly a face-to-face visit, a phone call or an email. I whole-heartedly welcome your conversation and positive input throughout the school year. I look forward to the great things that will continue at Huffman Elementary with the amazing faculty and staff, as well as with your support!
