Welcome to Nimitz Middle School! We are currently under construction so if you drive by it may look a little messy but in a few short years you will see some exciting changes. NEISD Bond money has provided our school with a new orchestra room, two new gyms and locker rooms along with a new library, new administrative wing, and several new classrooms. We are also home to the STEM Magnet program, grades 6-8. The BEST magnet program in NEISD. It is a great day to be alive and be a Seahawk! I am very proud to be the Principal of Nimitz.
It is a privilege to serve such a great community of learners! With 19 years of educational experience, this is my first year as Director of STEM. For the past three years, I was Principal of Roan Forest Elementary School. I have also worked as an Assistant Principal and Academic Dean of Instruction at various NEISD middle school campuses. Prior to administration, I was a math teacher at the high school and middle school levels in the Schertz, Judson and NEISD school districts. With PreK-12 experience, I know the continuum of educational services and approaches necessary to promote academic success for students. I look forward to working with our families and faculty to promote the educational achievement of our STEM students.
Hello Nimitz Community. I am glad to be a part of an amazing tradition and student body here at Nimitz Middle School. I was born in Brownsville, Texas. I graduated from the University of Texas at Brownsville in 2006 with a degree in Psychology. I started in education shortly afterwards. I graduated with a Masters Degree in Educational Administration in 2012 from the University of Texas A&M San Antonio. I am blessed with a wonderful family which includes my wife and 2 year old daughter. I am excited for the opportunity to work with the Nimitz faculty and students for years to come.
I grew up in a small Texas Panhandle town. Both my grandmother and my mother educated students for 30+ years. With that strong foundation of educators, I embarked on my journey to make a difference in as many children's lives as I possibly could. I believe that every child can learn and that building relationships is the key to unlocking their learning potential. I have educated students in a variety of settings and love each level for different reasons. I am always looking for ways to better myself so I can stay on top of trends in the educational realm. To say I am a lifelong learner would be an accurate statement. I am very excited to be a Nimitz Seahawk and look forward to working with the students and faculty.
I graduated from North Texas State University in Denton with my Bachelor in Education, and then followed with my Masters in Educational Administration from Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. I taught Bilingual and ESL, Speech Therapy, Elementary and Secondary education. I have also worked in curriculum, instruction and campus administration. Since 2003, I have had the privilege to be a member of our proud Nimitz family and consider it an honor to join in celebrating our fighting Seahawks.
I am very excited to work with the administration, teachers, and their families to help ensure the success of our wonderful students. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California and have called San Antonio home since 2005. I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of California, San Diego , a graduate fellowship at California State University, Sacramento, my masters from California State University, Los Angeles, and a program in College Counseling from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
