Fine Arts Academy Principal Heather Crow will serve as our new Elementary Education Director. Candace Summerhill, who has held the position for the past four years, recently accepted a job in Aledo ISD.
Principal at FAA for the past four years, Crow was Assistant Principal at Liberty Elementary two years prior. She also taught at Liberty for 12 years.
Superintendent Frank Molinar said, “Heather has a passion for the RtI process, and we’re looking forward to evaluating new and innovative ways to help students succeed.”
“I’m excited to join the C&I Team and work hand in hand with our principals, instructional coaches, instructional technology specialists and elementary instructional teams,” she said.
Crow said integrating technology efficiently in the lower grade levels and fully using all of the tools that are available to our kids in WSISD is vital to their success.
“It’s imperative that we are up-to-date with the latest trends in education and research so our kids have the tools they need to excel,” she said.
She plans to be visible at all of the elementary schools and help provide consistent communication between the C&I Department, the campus leadership and our instructional staff at every school.
A 1994 Brewer graduate, she has a master in education degree from Lamar University, a bachelor of science degree from the University of North Texas. She will finish her superintendent’s certification this summer.
