Ms. Amber Haynes

Welcome to Mission West Elementary. Home of the Wildcats!

I am very excited to be joining the Mission West Elementary community as your Assistant Principal. I look forward to supporting the mission of creating life-long learners. It is an honor to become a part of a school community filled with enthusiasm about education and a staff dedicated to the success of every student.

I was born and raised in the Chicago area and made Texas my home last year. I attended Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio, receiving a B.A in Early Childhood Education. Additionally, I have a Masters in Reading and Education Specialist degree in Administration and Supervision from National Louis University.

I am entering my tenth year in education. My experience spans grades K-5. My most recent educational experience was as an elementary Assistant Principal in Fort Worth. Prior to my administrative career, I taught first through third grades, and supported K-5 teachers in the area of literacy, as a Reading Specialist, in the Chicago area.

I am passionate, energetic, and love what I do! I believe that we encourage children to reach their greatest potential by capturing their hearts and minds, through fostering positive relationships and a culture of joy in learning. I am passionate about nurturing a strong home to school connection. It is exciting to think about all that we will achieve working together. I look forward to meeting the wonderful students and families of Mission West Elementary as we start the 2020-2021 school year.
