    “We’re pleased to welcome Ms. Dockery to the LISD family,” LISD Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kevin Rogers said. “She is a passionate educator with a record of student and staff achievement. I am confident DeLay will continue to build upon its culture of excellence under her leadership.” 

    During her time with CFBISD, Dockery made numerous contributions at both the campus and district levels. While principal at Long Middle School, her campus was selected as 1 of 50 charter member schools to participate in the Dynamic Learning Project, a Google initiative. She also served on committees such as the Diversity and RTI Initiatives committees, and was a member of the instructional rounds team. 

    Dockery received her Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of North Texas and earned a Master of Education in Educational Administration from Lamar University. Dockery has her principal certification (4-8), and holds a certification for Generalist (4-8). She is a member of the Association of Texas Professional Educators and the Texas Association of School Administrators.
