Principal Announcement

At the end of the school year I sent a letter to parents indicating that I would be moving to GMCS District to serve as the Title lll/Bilingual Coordinator.  It has been my pleasure to work at TLE for three years and in partnership with students, parents and educators moved forward to successful performance and growth of student's academic skills.  I am pleased to share that Ms. Ophelia Sanchez will be taking the leadership role of being TLE's Principal beginning July 2017.  She will continue the work of literacy, cultural relevant school-student culture, and school-wide PBIS.  The 90 day school plan will also be a district expectation that will continue.  Your support as parents and community members is essential.  Thank you for the experience and support - I will continue to work with parents and community from the district level.
