October is National Principal Appreciation Month - This week’s spotlight is on Ms. Lisa Stephens of Tarkington Primary School. Ms. Stephens joined TISD in 2013 as a district administrator, having been a middle school social studies teacher, a 1st grade teacher, dyslexia specialist, Master Reading Teacher, and principal! In her 8 years with TISD, Mrs. Stephens has served many roles but chose to return to her love of elementary students by accepting the challenge of serving as the principal at Tarkington Primary, not only during a pandemic, but also during its need for comprehensive support! Her leadership and dedication are a huge part of what makes every day at TPS a great day to be a Longhorn! Thank you, Ms. Stephens, for all you do!

October is National Appreciation Month - This week’s spotlight is on Mr. Sean McCabe of Tarkington Middle School. In Mr. McCabe’s nearly 20 years in education, he’s spent time teaching and coaching in Missouri, Arizona, and Texas. Mr. McCabe joined TISD during a pandemic and showed tremendous leadership during such a stressful time that he quickly won over students and staff alike. His dedication to academics and his motto of “in persistent pursuit of excellence” have already positively impacted the academic success of students and the professional development of staff. Thank you, Mr. McCabe, for being a huge part of what makes every day a great day to be a Longhorn!

October is National Principal Appreciation Month - This week’s spotlight is for our newest principal now leading TIS, Mr. Gerald Nixon! Mr. Nixon’s 25 years of experience in education and his appreciation for a campus with such a family-like atmosphere make him a great fit for TIS. Mr. Nixon comes to us from his hometown of Angleton by way of working in and around several area districts similar to TISD. His varied positions and perspectives will provide new insight and support to campus programs, as well as validation of current successful programs that we know have created a positive climate and culture at TIS.
