    My journey began in small towns in Northern Iowa, where I was raised in 2 families with 6 siblings.  I’ve explored the world a bit, living in Taiwan, and traveling to many countries in Asia and Europe, and much of the US, too.  Gardening grounds me, cooking gets my creative spirit going, and travel ignites my passions. 

    Dallas ISD is my professional home.  I’ve been learning from kids, teachers, and colleagues in this great city since 2002.  No matter what the joys, successes, trials, or tribulations have been, the one constant is the relationships I have built that have shaped me. It is my hope that I have shaped others along the way. 

    “We rise by lifting others.”  This year, more than ever, we must lift each other and our students out of months of worldwide trauma, angst, fear, and difficulty. I am confident that Spartan Nation will rise to the challenge. Watch out, Dallas…..Samuell High School is on the rise!! We’re READY!

    Spartan Proud,

    Principal Tecklenburg
