Welcome from the Principal

  • It is with great pride and excitement that I serve as the principal of Homer Drive Elementary!

    As the incoming principal, it is my sincere pleasure and honor to serve our students, staff and community. I am also thrilled to be a part of the Beaumont ISD innovative Accelerating Campus Excellence (ACE) program and the opportunities for students that this program provides.

    All of our stakeholders are valued members of the Homer Drive community, and it is my hope that each of you are ready to embrace the ACE model and work with our staff to meet the needs of our students. I look forward to the opportunity to meet each of you, and discuss opportunities to support the campus.

    There are five pillars within the ACE Model which serve as a guide for our staff as we endeavor to educate the whole child. Through strategic staffing, instructional excellence, extended day, social emotional learning, and working with our parents and community partners, we will achieve excellence.    

    Thank you in advance for the support and dedication provided to Homer Drive this school year.  You all are appreciated for the foundation you help us to create for our adults of tomorrow.  

    We anticipate the progress our students will make at Homer Drive, serving as a model for our school district.  Homer Drive Elementary is Home of the Mighty Bobcats, and the achievement you see will be the result of all stakeholders’ efforts and dedication.

    Our greatest initiative will be to work together to achieve the ACE model's academic, social and emotional goals. I assure you that our Homer Drive staff will inspire and challenge students with engaging experiences in the classroom, preparing them for their future. We will provide students with opportunities to grow, learn and reach their full potential as happy and productive citizens.
