Meet your Principal:
Welcome to Ethridge Elementary!
I am proud to have been an educator since 1992 as a secondary math teacher. I came to LISD in 1996 and taught until I joined Ethridge Elementary as Assistant Principal in 2012. I was then honored to accept my Principalship in 2015. As a mom of 4 children myself, I oversee your child’s academic, social, and emotional development like I would my own. This would not be possible without the help of an incredible Administrative Team and all of our fabulous grade level teams . Mrs. Barentine, our Assistant Principal, Edwina Townsend, our Licensed Professional Counselor, and I are there for you and your children each and every day, just like your children's teachers are each year.
Ethridge has a long and proud tradition of providing our families and their children a well rounded, high quality education! We enjoy partnering with our surrounding community to provide various learning experiences throughout the year, in addition to offering campus based curriculum family nights and PTA sponsored programs/events! As Principal, my first priority is to keep the lines of communication open and the learning on track! The Ethridge staff, students, and parents are a TEAM which aligns itself with the LISD Four Cornerstones. We will all work together to provide our students with a high quality education where Student Learning, Student Experiences, Community Engagement, and Resource Stewardship are at the center of all we do.
Please do not hesitate to email, call or stop by if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to seeing everyone at our campus family or PTA sponsored functions throughout the year!

Meet Your Assistant Principal:
Dear Parents and Students,
I am looking forward to an exciting and successful school year! Being an assistant principal at Ethridge is a dream come true. My LISD career began in 1994. I spent the first 19 years of my career working with students to help them grow academically, socially, and emotionally.
When I joined Ethridge Elementary in 2015, it was like coming home. The parents, students and faculty welcomed me with open arms. It is my goal that you have that same feeling when you walk the halls of Ethridge. I look forward to working with each of you to assist our students in working toward the ultimate goal of enjoying thriving, productive lives in a future they create. This goal will require ALL of us to work as a team so we can support our students’ individual needs.
This year I will strive to encourage and support teachers, students and parents in “Lifelong Learning.” Together we can help our student achieve their dreams.
