Meet the Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians:

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as your new Middle School Principal. I am extremely excited to come back home and be a part of this great school system. I am a product of NDISD and I graduated from NDHS in 1994. I then attended Texas A&M-Commerce where I earned my degree in History. I entered public education in 2007 after a five-year stint in the US Army with the 4th Infantry Division.  I have taught Social Studies at both Marshall and Longview ISD’s. My most recent assignment has been as an Assistant Principal at Longview High School. Our Mission at New Diana is to educate and empower students to pursue their goals with a sense of purpose that motivates them to take control of their future and become successful, responsible citizens in an ever-changing world. I look forward to working with each of you to ensure we achieve this goal for each of our students.
