Welcome to Landry Elementary, the Home of the Longhorns!!!  It is my distinct honor and privilege to serve the Landry Community. 

I am a proud graduate of Grambling State University where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.  After which, I obtained a Masters of Education degree from Texas A&M-Commerce, followed by my Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Dallas Baptist University.

My belief is that school should be a rewarding experience where children grow academically, socially, and emotionally, and every decision I make will be seen through that lens!  If you are looking for an innovative academic learning experience where your child will be loved and protected and where you and your family are treated special, Landry is the place for you!

Our staff is hard at work planning an exciting and rewarding experience for our children, their families, and the community.  Landry offers well-rounded educational programming through our Ignite Pre-K Academy, our Imagine Fine Arts Academy, and our STEAM Gifted and Talented Academy.  Our goal is to meet the needs of the whole child.

At Landry we are committed to providing an atmosphere in which our children LOVE SCHOOL!  Supporting our learners in an environment in which they feel secure, loved and protected is paramount.  We know that if our children are safe, happy, and excited about school, they will learn.  At Landry, we will work hard; however, we will also play hard. 

Community is very important to me and the entire Longhorn family.  Giving back to our community is the heartbeat of Landry and it is critical to our success that we all partner together to support one another.  So become involved!  Join our PTA and volunteer to support our initiatives and be a part of the AMAZING things that we are doing. 

If you have any questions, we would love to visit with you.  I am looking forward to working with you.
