Welcome to my courses! It is a pleasure to have you join me on my journey. I have been a Texas school administrator for 10 years. I'm currently presenting, blogging and creating resources for school principals, teachers and instructional staff. Awarded Top 10 Principal in Texas in 2014!Blog- Principal PrinciplesInstagram FacebookDo you feel like you just can't get all the duties of being a principal accomplished each day? Or maybe you're interested in being a principal? I'm here to help.Being a principal, can be hard but it is a very rewarding journey. The best part of being on this journey is that we have each other. We can reach across the limits of geography and reach out to each other via the amazing opportunity called the internet. When we link ourselves together, there are no limits on what we can accomplish. I am a former Elementary School Principal with a passion for transforming how we lead schools. If you are reading my blog and following me along this journey, I appreciate it greatly. My goal in life is to wake up each day with a purpose and leave a lasting legacy on this world. How about you?If you need assistance or ideas this year, reach out and let's work on it together.

I will always challenge myself as an administrator to keep growing and learn more every year. I am in my 10th year as a principal and this was a wonderful resource for me. I do many of these things but I learned lots of new things as well. I would love to create something like this for my teachers! Thank you for taking the time to help others grow!!
