Putnam Families & Community,


       I am honored to be your Putnam Principal this 2022-2023 school year.  I am completing my 28th year as an educator with EPISD and begin my 14th year as an administrator. I am ready to brace the challenges and the demands this new school year will bring and for what the future holds for our students. 


       Our focus is to prepare our students for the 21st century and develop them as independent learners. Putnam Elementary is leading the district with Dual Language as students develop their knowledge of both languages as they become truly bilingual and enrich their learning through the implementation of the Active Learning Framework. Through the use of these instructional frameworks our Putnam students will thrive in our society and promote the district vision.


        The key to a successful year is direct communication coupled with a productive parent-teacher relationship centered by the student's progress. Along with this implementation and use of a proven Social Emotional Learning (SEL), which guide the stakeholders that lead your students both socially, culturally and academically.  


         I would love to see you at our “Coffee with Principal” meetings that we schedule on a monthly basis.   This is your opportunity to share ideas or give your input on planned events or other projects you deem essential to our school community.  With Putnam Elementary teachers and staff, our parents, our community supporting our students, we will strive for success "TO INFINITY AND BEYOND".


         Looking forward to 2022-2023 school year and working TOGETHER to help each student ACHIEVE, SUCCEED, and be PREPARED for the future where each student dreams can become a reality!
