In the coming month, I will be out on maternity leave. I am enjoying time being back with the students and plan to be back before STAAR Assessments in April. In the meantime, please help me welcome former NEISD Principal, Mrs. Turnbo, to our campus as T.H.E.'s Principal Substitute. I will be working with her in the next few weeks preparing for leave. More info to come regarding Mrs. Turnbo and contacting her when I leave.
