Michelle Smiley

Hello, my name is Michelle Lee Smiley, and I am the newest assistant principal at MacArthur for the 2022-2023 school year. This is my 7th year in education with experience teaching ESL and ELA at the high school level and two years of administration at the middle school level - that was interesting. I am originally from Edcouch-Elsa, in the Rio Grande Valley. I am a proud graduate of The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Arts in English and a minor in Spanish. I continued my education, graduated with an MBA from Our Lady of the Lake University, and received my Principal Certification and Superintendent Certification training from Lamar University. I love education and am a lifelong learner seeking an Ed. D. through Walden University.

Some of my responsibilities include working with our illustrious CTE, ESL, LOTE, Creative Arts, and Social Studies teachers, as well as our award-winning dance team. My goals are to help our teachers prepare our students for their futures by providing the tools, habits, and mindset they need to succeed in their post-secondary education and careers. This is my first year on this campus, and I am excited to join the MacArthur family. Go Brahmas!
