At Grapeland ISD our goal is to serve the students, staff and community of Grapeland to strive for excellence in all phases of their lives.




    I am excited to be chosen by our Board members for this prestigious position. It is my intention to be an exemplary human resource to a school district that I have grown to love. It is my intention to be visible, vocal, available, approachable and accessible in our school and community. It is my intention to communicate, collaborate, connect and care for what is best for our students, staff and parents in Grapeland ISD.
    This journey began in the 2017-2018 school year by looking, listening, learning, and leading with loyalty to our Board and love for our students, staff, parents and community. Now, as we enter 2022-2023 we are striving to improve in all aspects of our school district. It is my belief that the best never rest. They continually strive for greatness.
    I continue to look forward to the challenge of assessing and addressing our strengths and limitations. 
    To put it simply... I want us to be the best small district in the State of Texas, excelling in Attendance, Academics, Attitudes, Agriculture, Athletics, Arts, Aspirations and Accountability.
