Principal's Bio

From the Principal

Home of the Proud Apaches and Lady Apaches...

I am energized and looking forward to anther prospersous school year.  The 2014-2015 school year will involve some exciting new educational opportunities as a Duel Language program and a Robotics program will be available to 6th grade students at our campus.  Best wishs to our Leal community for a great year.

I am an educator with many years of experience serving the students and community in the Harlandale Independent School District.  My background includes years of experience as a classroom teacher, teacher of Limited English Proficiency students and as a former Principal of Columbia Heights Elementary School. 

I am honored to lead the dedicated staff here at Leal Middle School.  Leal provides many opportunities to students to grow academically, socially and physically.  My message to students and parents is, "Get Involved".  For students, this means play an active roll in your classes, student organizations and athletics.  Whatever your interest is...pursue it.  For parents and families we have an active parent teacher association and host many "2nd cup of coffee" meetings to strengthen the connection between Leal Middle School staff and our community.  Event times and dates can be found on our website calendar, or on our marquee in front of the school.

I welcome communication with parents and our Leal community.  I encourage you to use this website as a way to contact me, Leal MS administrators, counselors and of course the terrific teachers here.  On these web pages there is information about Leal academics and school related events.
