Principal's Message

Welcome to Celina Elementary! Home of the Lil’ Bobcats!

At Celina Elementary School we pride ourselves on maintaining high expectations for student achievement while focusing on the individual needs of each student.  We believe that parent-school relationships are essential to high academic achievement.  Find any successful school and you will also find parents and staff members that are supportive of one another.  Active engagement with the campus staff will reveal the purpose and value of educational experiences and extra-curricular activities we provide here at Celina Elementary.


It is such an honor and privilege to serve in such an amazing school community as Celina.  As principal, I take great pride in ensuring that each of our students receive an education that empowers them and provides them with the skills needed to be successful now and in the future.  


I look forward to working with each of you as we continue the tradition of excellence established here at Celina I.S.D.  If you have further questions, please feel free to call me at (469) 742-9103 or e-mail at
