TOMBALL - Tomball ISD is excited to announce that Allyson Jordan has been named the new Creekview Elementary Principal, effective immediately.
Jordan most recently served as Assistant Principal at Northpointe Intermediate and is no stranger to Creekview having spent her first few years in Tomball ISD as an Assistant Principal at CES from 2018-2020.
“Creekview stole my heart after our move to Texas in 2018,” Jordan said. “I was honored to serve as Assistant Principal for two years and I experienced so much joy and love during my time there. Creekview teachers challenge one another to continuously improve teaching and learning for all students and the dedication and support from our community of families is simply exceptional.”
She brings to this leadership position the ability to play an active role in the success, growth and overall well-being of all students and staff.
“Of course the most important factor in my desire to return to CES is our sweet students who exemplify the life principles of courage, optimism, and compassion,” she said. “It's amazing how little people can teach us so much about life and what is most important. They make me proud to serve and motivate me to work as hard as I can for them.”
Jordan showcases invaluable experience, having served as a campus administrator, an early learning coach, providing professional development around curriculum and instruction, as well as an elementary classroom teacher and curriculum specialist over the years.
She also contributes numerous professional development experience through Solution Tree PLCs, Great Expectations and Advanced Educational Leadership opportunities.
She is well-traveled, having graduated from Rivier University in New Hampshire with a BA in Early Childhood Education and a BA in General Special Education. She also received her MA in Education/Literacy from New England College in New Hampshire and her MA in Educational Leadership from Concordia University in Irvine, CA.
What is it about education that you love so much?
“I love that education opens endless doors of opportunity and allows anyone to make their dreams a reality,” Jordan said. “What excites me most about elementary education are the moments where learning occurs simply by allowing students to be curious, explore, and discover. When we create experiences for students that use teachers as facilitators and learners alongside our students, the environment in turn becomes the educator. I believe this is a valuable lifelong skill of recognizing that we can learn most by engaging in and wondering about the world around us and seeking answers to our unanswered questions.”
What can the CES school community expect of you as their leader?
“As a leader I strive to provide transparency and clarity of our systems, expectations, and vision for our school through ongoing communication and open dialog. I value the shared history and knowledge that we hold as a collective community and will rely heavily on the idea that together we can achieve more. As a new mom, I am now able to fully appreciate how your child quickly becomes the most important thing in your whole world and that there is nothing you wouldn't do to ensure their happiness and well-being. I will do my best to always keep sight of the fact that our families are trusting us to provide the most nurturing, enriching, and supportive environment possible while their sweet children are in our care.”
