New Principals on Nine Campuses

New Principals on Nine Campuses
School Bus

August 6, 2014 - The drive to school will be a little different this year for nine Amarillo ISD principals who are starting the year at different campuses. Five assistant principals are moving into principal positions and four principals are transferring onto different campuses which will create fresh opportunities for communication between schools and parents.

Assistant principal Ramon Garcia moves from Mann Middle School to take the principal position at Landergin Elementary, just a change in the size of his students, he jests. “I love what I do and am blessed to work with students, parents and teachers,” Garcia said. “When I started teaching, I taught second grade bilingual students at Sunrise. I feel like I am coming home since I started out as an elementary teacher in the Caprock cluster.”

This school year marks a transitional period for these principals as well. As “new kids” they will work alongside faculty and parents to ensure students have a successful year. “Both elementary and middle school parents want their child to get the best education possible,” Garcia said. “I will work with teachers to provide an environment which is conducive to learning and keeps the lines of communication open with our parents.”

Meet the new principal on your campus, as well as your child’s teacher, at registration and back to school night in the coming weeks.
