TEAM TIGERS! Roaring as One!  Our theme for the 2022-23 school year, addresses how important it is for all of us to work together as a team and Roar as One!  We have the same goals and dreams and are all working towards achieving them together.  

We will continue to focus on helping our students take more ownership of their learning.  All students will be working on making individual and group goals and then reflecting on their progress.  We will also be focusing on our Tiger Values.  T - Teamwork, I - Integrity, G - Goal Setting, E - Empathy, R - Responsibility, and S - Safety.  Our Tigers learn that it is so important to practice these traits as they navigate through life.  

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!  Go TIGERS!
