He continued as an Assistant Principal at Arnold Middle School in Cy-Fair ISD from 2009 to 2011 before becoming an Assistant Principal (2012 to 2015) and a Curriculum Principal (2015 to 2017) at Nimitz High school in Aldine ISD before landing in Tomball.

“My previous junior high experience allowed me to build a passion for this age group of students and to serve as a role model for students as they transition into high school,” Vaglienty said. “I look forward to supporting student and teacher growth and serving an amazing school community in Creekside Park Junior High.”
