Superintendent of Schools

Welcome to one of the best school districts in Texas. We are excited to have you as part our TCISD family. 

Texas City ISD encountered many challenges and opportunities during the 2020-21 school year. As if COVID-19 was not enough, we dealt with hurricane watches and a tornado. And we cannot forget the 2021 freeze. We kept going. We kept our eye on the prize and that was our students. We quarantined staff, we quarantined students, we lost loved ones but still marched on. Nothing was going to stop us, and I assure you there were many opportunities for us to quit. Together we survived and we were successful.

It seems quite fitting that our vision for the district is “Together We Succeed.” Because that is what we did. Despite everything we had a successful 20-21 school year.  We united, we tackled, and we persevered. But we can’t stop here.

We need to continue to raise the bar and we need to continue to achieve high levels of success for 2021-2022. We want to leave this district better than it was before. We need to continue to succeed! So, we might ask what is success? "Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, studying, learning, sacrifice, and most of all love of what you are doing or learning to do! (Pele)"

Winnie the Pooh said: “Promise me you’ll always remember, you’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think!” Alone we are strong but together we are stronger. Together We Succeed!
