In keeping with its commitment to continuous improvement, Prime Prep Academy is pleased to introduce new members of its administration team, and congratulate others that are climbing the educational ladder within the organization.
Charlie Garza has been elevated to the position of Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction for the Prime Prep district. He will recommend and oversee the educational tools and resources used at both campuses and will work closely with Rachel M. King-Sanders (Superintendent) to grow the academic vision of schools, facilitate teacher training and development, and craft the most effective blended learning environment in the Metroplex.
Amy Hampton will take over the reigns as principal of the Dallas campus. Her background includes leadership roles at Uplift Education and Texans Can Academy. Ms. Hampton was a part of the developmental phases of Prime Prep Academy and, as a result, has an in-depth understanding of the culture, mission and vision of the organization. Her impeccable leadership, educational training experience and ability to interface with parents, students, teachers and the community make her an excellent choice to lead the campus in 2013 and beyond.
Assisting Ms. Hampton in Dallas will be Shelley Robinson. Ms. Robinson comes to Prime Prep with 18 years of educational experience, excelling in numerous capacities. She won Teacher of the Year in two different districts, has a Master's Degree in Educational Administration and specializes in professional development. Her primary role as Assistant Principal will be teacher coaching, training, and student achievement. Ms. Robinson's immense and well-accomplished educational background makes her an excellent fit for the Dallas campus. As lead assistant to Ms. Hampton, she along with returning Assistant Principals Mr. Pikes and Ms. Phelps will aid in creating an exemplary academic campus at the 6-12 grade levels.
The Fort Worth campus is pleased to announce Ms. Krystal O'Donald as Assistant Principal who will train teachers, develop parent and community relations and work closely with the existing administrative team to mold bright young minds at the elementary school. Ms. O'Donald comes from the Prime Prep Dallas campus where she served as the head of the science department. Prior to Prime Prep she was a department head at Comstock Middle School in Dallas. The administrative returnees that she will join include Mr. Cleveland Starr, Ms. Sonja Franklin-Johnson and Mr. Sean Allen; all who have deep roots in Fort Worth and a commitment to improve the community through educational enrichment.
Prime Prep Superintendent Rachel M. King-Sanders is filled with optimism for the upcoming year and is thrilled with the team that she and Mr. Garza have selected. "With a solid academic team in place at both campuses and strong leadership at the district level, Prime Prep Academy will provide even better opportunities to children all across the DFW area," Sanders stated. "Parents can expect more intensified instruction, stricter disciplinary standards, improved communication and most of all a finer academic and extra-curricular experience that leads to student excellence in every aspect."
