It is my pleasure to introduce myself as your new principal of Mountain Valley Middle School. I am extremely humbled and honored to be joining a campus where all stakeholders are committed to supporting and providing a rich educational environment.
This is my 22nd year in education. I became part of Comal Independent School District in 2016, where I spent two years at Mountain Valley Middle School as a Campus Instructional Coach and an Assistant Principal before moving to Canyon Lake High School. While at Canyon Lake High School, I served as the Assistant Principal and Academic Dean for the past two years. It is with great pride and excitement that I will be returning to Mountain Valley Middle School and continuing to serve this incredible community.
It is my commitment to each of you to foster a school culture and climate where every child feels safe, connected, successful and heard. I look forward to meeting each one of you. Please know that my door is always open to you. I sincerely welcome your conversation and input. We will be learning together to achieve the highest accomplishments.
