#TIGERSTRONG  Together We Are Family! This year we will need to concentrate on building positive relationships as we learn in different ways.  Whether we are learning from home virtually or at school face to face...we always need to remember that we are one big family! We are TIGERSTRONG!

We will focus on helping our students take more ownership of their learning.  Whether it be learning how to multiply two digit numbers or learning how to effectively be a team member.  We take pride in educating the whole child here at Colony Meadows Elementary. We feel that the journey in learning is as important as the destination. Teaching our students to be problem solvers, innovative thinkers, and compassionate citizens is so important.  We are excited to take a fantastic journey through discovery this year.

I am a native Houstonian!  I grew up in what used to be the suburbs...attending school in the Spring Branch Area and graduating from Memorial High School.  I then atttended The University of Texas where I received my degree in Advertising.  Some people who visit my office say that I might be a little obsessive with my Longhorn decorations...but they make me feel at home.  Being a life-long learner...I continued my education with the University of Houston where I received a Bachelor of Science in Education and then a Masters of Education.  I have always loved learning and trying new things and I attempt to pass that love to others here at Colony Meadows.  


I am so happy to be the principal here at Colony Meadows, where I believe we have the best students, parents and staff!  We truly are one team working to make sure that our students succeed!  Instilling in our students that with a growth can achieve anything that you set your mind on doing.  You may not succeed the first time, but if you keep trying you will!
