TOMBALL - Tomball ISD has named Dr. Mindy Munoz its Secondary Principal of the Year for the 2019-2020 school year.
Munoz has dedicated over 17 years to education as both an administrator and classroom teacher. She has spent four years in Tomball ISD and the last three years serving the students at Creekside Park Junior High as its campus Principal.
"Junior High is the special place between walking in straight lines in elementary school and driving in high school,” Munoz said. “Being a junior high principal is rewarding because I get to watch students enter as scared and timid sixth graders and over the next three years, they make the transition into confident 8th graders ready for high school opportunities. I focus on encouraging my students every day and reminding them that they are valued! My wish is that I play a small role in molding my students into independent thinkers and good humans who strive to become the best version of themselves.”
Munoz brings many years of experience as an administrator and classroom teacher at the secondary level, having spent time in Klein, Spring Branch and Magnolia before coming on board with Tomball ISD in 2016 as an Associate Principal at Tomball Memorial High School.
“Mindy is a proven leader with a passion for serving students and our TISD families,” Dr. Rick Fernandez, Assistant Superintendent of Secondary Schools said.
When asked about her campus culture, Munoz responded, “My goal will always be to build a campus culture where students feel happy and safe so they can thrive in a strong educational environment. When students, faculty/staff and parents leave the campus I am working at, I want them to know I truly care about their future and that I am invested in helping them reach their next goal.”
