Douglas Elementary has always been a part of my life. As a young child, I lived two blocks from Douglas and attended as a student. After graduating from T.K. Gorman High School, I worked for a few years in the private sector before beginning classes at the University of Texas at Tyler. I graduated in 1995 with a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies and joined Tyler ISD in the fall of that year as a 3rd grade teacher at Douglas. In 2004 I received my Masters of Education from the University of Texas at Tyler and was promoted to Assistant Principal at Douglas. Now, as Principal of Douglas Elementary, I’m looking forward to continued educational excellence and new traditions in our new school.
