Dear Columbia High School Community,
It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself as the new principal of Columbia High School. I am honored to join a school with such a rich tradition of excellence. The 2019-2020 school year will mark my 33rd year in Texas education. From my experience as a high school Assistant Principal, Social Studies teacher and coach, I enjoy interacting with students. I love to see them find future success in their learning both in high school and in their education and careers after high school.
I believe that all schools should prioritize three areas: student safety, student success, and creating life-long learners among all students and school staff. For students to learn, they must feel safe at school, both in the classroom and around the school campus. With a safe and productive learning environment, students and teachers will optimize their time at school, and parents and community members will feel comfortable communicating and building relationships within the Columbia High School community. This will lead students, teachers, and staff members to continue their focus on our goal of continued student growth and achievement. Student success is rooted in creating life-long learners who develop the ability to self-reflect on their own progress, allowing them to adapt and communicate with teachers, staff members, and parents to make gains in their learning. In the same manner, teachers will continue to self-reflect, communicate, and collaborate with students, parents, and other teachers to help students achieve their highest level of success.
I look forward to an amazing school year and to being a part of the future success at Columbia High School!
