Assistant Principals

Our school divides students alphabetically (by surname) and assigns them to an assistant principal. Each student reports to their assigned assistant principal when they have questions or concerns. The assistant principals also handle discipline with the students.

Please contact your child's assigned principal if you ever have a concern that they can help you with. Their contact information can be found in the tabs below.


A-FLE Office

Assistant Principal: Randy Baker (E-Mail)
Secretary: Dalia Chapa (E-Mail)

My goal is to help teachers reach their maximum potential as an educator. I do this by providing support in the areas of planning, classroom management and needed resources. As an administrator my door is always open to help you make our students successful in your area of academics and extra-curricular activities. I want you to be successful because it makes me successful.

My goal is to prepare students to become productive community members. I do this by being a role model first. I try to instill in our students the need to be to class on time, prepared and ready to learn. I work with student to overcome adversity in their personal lives and focus on education. I work with students to set goals for post-secondary education or the work force. Successful students ensure a world with a future.

I graduated from Weimar High School located in Weimar, Texas. I attended Southwest Texas State University where I received a Agriculture Management and Production with a teaching certificate. I was then hired by TCISD to teach Agriculture and Biology classes at Texas City High School. After one year with the district I taught a full schedule of Agriculture classes.

After 15 years in the classroom I became an Assistant Principal at Blocker Middle School. I worked with the 7th grade for 6 years and then transferred to the High School campus as an Assistant Principal in 2013.

RIV-Z Office

Assistant Principal: Earl Hall (E-mail)
Secretary: Sylvia Zaro (E-Mail)

My goal is to help maximize teacher effectiveness through the use of time, collaborative planning, providing resources and the opportunity to reflect. As an administrator, we want instructional strategies that will work in the classroom which will inspire and motivate student engagement and learning. An atmosphere of cooperation and support will be provided.

My goal is to make sure students are prepared for the next step. This will begin with students coming to school daily, to be on time for class, and follow the campus and classroom expectations.

In addition, students must begin planning for post high school. We want all of our students be successful and graduate from high school as well as be on a path toward being an independent person. We are here to help you with this endeavor.

I graduated from Brenham High School, attended Blinn Junior College and received an associate degree and transferred to Sam Houston State University where I received my BAT in Government, Physical Education and an endorsement in Drivers Education. I completed my master program at Prairie View A & M University as well as certification in Mid-Management and Superintendent.

My professional career includes teacher, coach, assistant principal, summer school principal, principal and director.
