Alyssa Peraza, Principal
I am Alyssa Peraza and have 27 years of experience in education. I have worked as an Assistant principal, Math Lead Teacher, and a classroom teacher in Dallas ISD. I have been Sidney Lanier’s principal for 17 of those years.
Since the 2002-2003 school year, I have been the principal at Sidney Lanier Expressive Arts Vanguard and love the students, staff, and community.
My vision for the school is to make sure every student succeeds academically and emotionally while fostering an appreciation for the arts.
I have an open-door policy to collaborate with all stakeholders to prepare students for their future contributions to society.
I grew up in Dallas and attended Dallas ISD schools for elementary, middle and high school. I invite you to become part of our Lanier family.
