In his own words ...
What makes working in TISD so special?
“Working in Tomball ISD is special for many reasons. I started kindergarten at Lakewood Elementary and graduated from Tomball High School. I attended Tomball Schools all the way, K – 12. I then worked in various positions on the north and south side of the district, investing in my hometown, and pouring into the programs and schools that did so much for me growing up. After five years of being away, I’m returning to TISD, which is the district that all of my personal children attend (Carly 13, Gracie 10, Eli 8), and I could not be more excited about investing in the very community that played such a huge role in shaping me. For me, working in TISD is special, because there’s no place like home.”
What are you looking forward to most about leading TMHS this upcoming school year?
“I am most looking forward to reconnecting with the families of students that I served when I was an Assistant Principal at Northpointe Intermediate (2009 – 2012)! When I had the opportunity to speak at the 8th grade ceremony this May, I recognized several of the parents in the crowd who had older students that went through NIS back then. I am also very excited to reconnect with several former colleagues that I worked with at Tomball High School back when I was a math teacher and soccer coach (2004 – 2009), and when I was an Assistant Principal there (2012 – 2014). I developed many strong relationships with some amazing educators that I have tremendous respect for, and I am so excited to be working with them again.”
