Our Principal, Ms. Bridget
Education is my family business.
My grandpa became a science teacher after he returned from WWII. My dad was my high school principal, and my mom taught kindergarten for 32 years. My older sister teaches eighth-grade biology. (My little sister went rogue and became a nurse.)
Before moving to Austin, I spent nearly a decade with the Montana Migrant Education program. Since then, I've taught ESL and theater at a small charter academy, supported first generation college graduates with Breakthrough Central Texas, and served diverse students in AISD's Humanities magnet program. I am now honored to be the principal of Austin ISD's only public Montessori school. It is a joy to provide an authentic Montessori experience for all students and to lead a campus and community toward best practices for instruction, inclusion of students with disabilities, biliteracy/bilingualism, and caregiver involvement. I promote a school vision that celebrates diversity, says yes to the big dreams of our staff, and provides equitable outcomes for all students. I'm proud to continue my family business.
