• Dear Veterans Middle School Students, Teachers, Staff, Parents, and Community Members,

    It is with great enthusiasm and pride that I introduce myself as the new Principal of Veterans Middle School. My name is Alenn Garza, and I am honored to have the opportunity to serve this exceptional school and community.

    With 15 years of experience in education, I am eager to bring my passion for teaching and leadership to help guide our students towards academic success and personal growth. Having previously worked at this campus as an Assistant Principal, I am deeply familiar with the school's mission, values, and the incredible community that surrounds it.

    My guiding philosophy is that the principal should be the hardest working person in the building. My leadership style is rooted in building strong relationships and cultivating a supportive and collaborative school culture. I prioritize effective communication, active listening, and building consensus among stakeholders to ensure a shared vision for student success. I believe in recognizing and celebrating achievements, while also providing targeted support and guidance to help individuals overcome challenges and reach their full potential.

    My experience at Veterans Middle School has provided me with a comprehensive understanding of the unique challenges and opportunities within the school community. I am adept at analyzing data, developing responsive systems and structures to manage student behavior, and implementing effective solutions to drive positive outcomes, especially with emergent bilingual students. I firmly believe in fostering a culture of continuous improvement, where feedback and reflection are valued, and collaboration is encouraged among staff members to enhance instructional practices and student outcomes.

    I am a firm believer in the power of collaboration and communication between the school, families, and the community. Your involvement and support are crucial in helping us achieve our goals and make a positive impact on our students' lives. I encourage you to participate in school events, and stay informed about your child's progress.

    As we embark on this new chapter together, I look forward to building strong relationships with our students, families, and staff. I am confident that through our collective efforts, Veterans Middle School will achieve academic excellence and provide a nurturing environment where every student can achieve their full potential.

    Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or ideas you may have. I am eager to work together and make this school year an outstanding experience for our entire Veterans Middle School community.

    Warm regards,

    Alenn Garza

    Veterans Middle School Principal
