Fredericksburg Primary School Leadership
Meet the Principal
Welcome to our school!!!
I am honored to be the Principal of Fredericksburg Primary School and cannot wait to get to know each of you personally as we begin our journey of the 2019-2020 school year.
My husband, Derrick, was born and raised in Fredericksburg and our family returned "home" in 2007. Our son, Dax, is a 2019 graduate of FHS and is currently a freshman at Blinn College.
For the past 23 years, I have had the honor of being in the education field. The first half of my career was spent teaching and coaching various subjects and sports. The second half of my career has been in administration. I joined the FISD family in 2007 as the principal of Stonewall Elementary School. SES was a GREAT place to get my "administration feet" wet and learn the ropes. Then in 2016 I was asked to join the FPS and FES teams as an assistant principal. In 2018 I became the principal at Fredericksburg Primary School. I am currently starting my second year as the proud principal at FPS.
I welcome the opportunity to be with each and every one of your kids this year at FPS.I was born and raised in Doss, TX and graduated from FHS in 1994. My wife, Marsha, also works for FISD as an educational diagnostician. Our oldest daughter, Ashley, is a freshman at Texas A&M and my younger daughter, Addison, is a 7th grader at FMS. We are very proud of both of our kids and look forward to their future.I am starting my 21st year in education. During these years, I have made various stops in San Angelo and McCamey before coming home to Fredericksburg in 2004. I have spent the last 6 years as the principal at the Gillespie County High School for FISD working with at-risk students helping them graduate before coming to FPS last year. I am so excited for the opportunity to work with the students and staff here at FPS.
Welcome to FPS!!!
Being at FPS for the last 21 years has been a true blessing to me. Thank you for allowing your kids to be part of our journey this school year, and I cannot wait to see what the year will bring. FPS is a great place for children.
Fredericksburg has always been my home, I graduated from FHS and I am super proud of our school district. My husband Mike and I have 2 boys and 6 grandchildren, both boys also graduated from FHS.
FPS has always been my love, I taught Kindergarten for 10 years and this will be my 10th year as the school counselor. My goal is to make sure that every child on our campus feels like a rock star!! It is important they know we are here to keep them safe and love them no matter what. I am here to serve the children, the parents and our wonderful staff. Please feel free to contact me for anything and please let me know if you have a need or request for you or your child. At FPS, we strive to do what is best for the boys and girls.
3 Reasons You Should Read with your Child
1. Reading exposes your child to rich language and diverse content. Book language uses a larger vocabulary and more complex grammatical structures than the short, one-way communication we tend to use in feeding and caring for our children.
2. Reading with your children helps prepare their minds to succeed in school. The benefits of shared reading knows no age limits.
3. Reading with your child can enrich family ties and intimacy. Reading together is family time; it is fun time, cuddle time, a time to share your passions, perspective, and your values but also a time to listen.
