The Harlingen Consolidated Independent School District Board of Trustees approved the hiring of Michele Todd as the new principal of Stuart Place Elementary, and adopted the calendar for the 2012-2013 school year during a special meeting Wednesday night.
“The opportunity to be the principal at Stuart has been bittersweet,” Todd said. “I’ve learned a lot during my time here at Wilson, and I’m going to miss the students and staff here. I know Stuart is a wonderful school. I am just excited to be their new leader.”
A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Todd received her masters degree from the University of Texas – Brownsville.
“Stuart Place has a history of achievement, and I’m confident that Michele Todd will continue that tradition,” Superintendent Dr. Steve Flores said. “Michele has excelled in her ability in leading a professional learning community, demonstrating her ability to be an extraordinary leader. Her experience working with children and parents in this community makes her a special addition to any school in our district.”
