It is truly my honor and privilege to serve as the Superintendent at Terrell County Independent School District, Sanderson School. 

    This privilege gives me the opportunity to lead our district to accomplish great things. As your superintendent, my goal is to provide the students of Sanderson with the best educational experience possible, an experience that will lead them to become life-long learners.  The faculty and staff at Sanderson School also embrace the responsibility and truly have the passion to meet the needs of your children.  We have great expectations for ourselves as educators, and for all our students. 

    As your superintendent, I will always put our students first! I will support them in all their academic and extra-curricular endeavors.  I want our students to be successful and enthusiastic about their learning.  As a district, we still strive to use innovative instructional strategies to engage our students and prepare them for the future.

    I believe that the education of a child is a partnership between home and school.  Research has shown that one of the most important factors in the success of a student’s education is a strong connection between home and school.  I encourage parents to be involved in their child’s education. We have the same educational goal for your student, success; and I hope that we will work together to make your child successful. 

    Together as educators, parents, community members, and students, we will make Sanderson School the best school in the state of Texas. The Terrell County Independent School District administration and staff are committed to building a community of learners, forming their foundation as future leaders and citizens.
