Welcome from the Principal
Welcome, Welcome and Welcome! My family and I thank you for the opportunity to serve this campus and community. I am excited and on fire to work with you and the “Campus of Champions”. My name is Shyulanda (Shy) Randle-Filer and I am extremely proud to be your Interim Principal at Willie Ray Smith Middle School. I am eagerly anticipating the new academic year, and I am ready to build and foster your child’s growth and success.
I have been in education for 22 years and serving 21 of those years in Beaumont ISD. I am married to Allen P. Filer and together we have three grown children and two grandsons. I have 7 years of administrative experience, and I hold a Master’s degree in Educational Administration. I am currently attending Texas A&M Commerce University to obtain my Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership.
My philosophy of education is that all educators should develop students holistically, by developing their character, mind and functioning skills. Each student will not learn at the same level or time but with care and dedication, students will achieve. In addition, my philosophy of education consists of the belief all children are unique individuals who need a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially functional in an ever-growing diverse society.
In closing, I will promote customer friendly and open door policies. Be sure to come support our Achievers, Believers, Champions and Dreamers. They are our present and our future.
