    Ms. Tekedra Gibbs
    Assistant Principal
    It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I write this letter of introduction as a new Assistant Principal of Ann Richards STEAM Academy.  I am truly honored to accept this new role and look forward to an amazing school year. I am confident that we will continue to provide our students with a truly challenging and enriching school experience as we transition through a new era in education.
    I am entering my twenty-sixth year in education. I spent nineteen years as a classroom teacher, before moving into an instructional coaching position for six years.  I feel very fortunate to continue this journey through education as an Assistant Principal for the English Language Arts department.
    The middle school years are critical times for students. What occurs during these years will have a lasting imprint on each student’s growth and development. My goal as Assistant Principal is to provide the leadership that will provide a safe school environment as we “Strive every day to create a learning environment where students thrive and achieve beyond what they believe possible”.
