Welcome to the Superintendent page for Miami ISD. The mission of Miami ISD is to have a staff and student body determined to exhibit excellence in every endeavor and demonstrate integrity in every encounter to be an inspiration to the community and the world.

The role of the superintendent is act as the educational leader and chief executive officer of the District, be responsible for the effective execution of policies adopted by the District’s board of trustees.  The superintendent assumes administrative responsibility for planning, operation, supervision, and evaluation of the education programs, services, and facilities of the District and the annual appraisal of district staff.

It has been my privilege to be the superintendent of Miami since February of 2007. Miami is my hometown and a graduate of the District; therefore, I am very committed ensuring the District strives to be one of the best schools not only in the region but also in the state. I have a bachelor’s degree from West Texas A&M University in elementary education. I earned my first master’s degree from Texas Tech University in Education Leadership and a second master’s in business administration with an emphasis in school finance and operations from Concordia University – Texas. My superintendent certification was earned through University of Texas – Permian Basin. I also have a certification as a Registered Texas School Business Administrator (RTSBA). I am currently a member of the executive board for Texas School Coalition as well as Texas Association of Community Schools. I also serve as ESC 16’s legislative chair. I had the honor of being selected as ESC 16 superintendent of the year in 2017.

It has been my privilege to be the superintendent of Miami since February of 2007. It is important to me that the students have the resources they need to become successful members of society. I may be biased, but MISD has amazing teachers and staff that not only are dedicated but also are passionate about the students in Miami.  Miami is a Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA), which means that teachers have the opportunity to earn additional money from the state based on student growth and teacher observations.  Teachers can earn an additional $5,000 up to $19,000 per year based on their designation they achieve.

It is important to me that the students have the resources they need to become independent, successful members of society. I may be biased, but MISD has amazing teachers and staff that not only are dedicated but also are passionate about the students in Miami.  Miami has five goals for the 2022-2023 that was created through a collaborative process with students, teachers, parents, and community members. Please look at our strategic plan on the website.  Miami is a Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) district, which means that teachers have the opportunity to earn additional money from the state based on student growth and teacher performance.  Teachers can earn an additional $5,000 up to $19,000 per year based on their designation they achieve through TIA starting the 2023-2024 school year.

I encourage open communication with any stakeholder and am here to serve the students and staff!
