Northeast Early College High School

Principal's Message


Raider Nation,


I am honored to join the Northeast Early College High School as the new Principal for the 2022-2023 school. I am thrilled to return to the community that made me. I am a proud graduate of Johnston High School and a beneficiary of the type of education that Austin ISD can provide. 


Growing up in Austin, Texas, I have seen the city evolve. Through the changes, Austin holds a special place in my heart. This unique city is home to many cultures, ethnicities, and languages, similar to the student population of Northeast Early College High School. I started my career as a teacher at Parades Middle Schools and later became an assistant principal in Del Valle ISD and Hays CISD. I have held leadership roles both in and outside of Austin ISD. These experiences have prepared me to bring the best practices into the fabric of Northeast ECHS. 


Three things about me that guide my leadership. 


1. Character 

2. Integrity 

3. Collaboration


I have high expectations for ALL students and will work tirelessly to provide equitable access and opportunities.
