Dr. Laurie Wells

I am thrilled to be the Assistant Principal at Peete Elementary this year!  Over half of my 23 year career has been in Tyler ISD!  Throughout my career, I have served as a teacher, Intervention Teacher, Instructional Coach, and Instructional Specialist.  In my role as Assistant Principal, I will work with teachers, students, and families to improve the educational experience at Peete Elementary.  My goal for our students is to grow into the leaders of our country and make a positive difference in lives throughout the world. 


One of my favorite quotes is by the great scientist, Dr. Jane Goodall, "What you do makes a difference.  You have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."
