Welcome to Tejeda

Dear Tejeda Community,

I am humbled and honored to write to you and introduce myself as the new Principal of Tejeda Middle School. I am grateful to join the Tejeda community and, I am excited to learn the traditions of our campus! I understand the culture of the Timberwolves is a strong one that provides every student the opportunity to reach their highest potential and I look forward to contributing to this environment.

I join Tejeda with 21 years of experience as an educator in both middle school and high school settings. I started my educational career as a high school paraprofessional and social studies teacher followed by my first administrative assignment at Mark Twain Middle School. In 2009, I received the opportunity to join the NEISD family as an Academic Dean at Eisenhower Middle School. In 2014, I became an Assistant Principal at Tex Hill Middle School and helped establish a new campus culture. Since 2017, I have been the Assistant Principal for Curriculum and Instruction at MacArthur High School. Throughout my journey in education, I have deeply understood the necessity to ensure every campus decision made is in the best interest of students. I can assure you that I will continue to hold myself to the same high standard in the role of Principal at Tejeda Middle School.

Although I have been incredibly fortunate to find success in my professional endeavors, my greatest joys come from being a wife to my husband, William, and a mother to my two sweet little girls, Mirabel and Mariela. My family has changed my role as an educator and given new meaning to the phrase, “If this was my child, how would I want them to be treated?”

I look forward to getting to know all the families, faculty and staff of Tejeda Middle School and I encourage you all to reach out to me or stop by and say hello.

Martha Reyes
Principal, Tejeda Middle School
