Principal's Message

Welcome new and returning SHS families,


It is time to start a new year at SHS and I cannot express to you how thrilled and honored I am to serve students, teachers, and the community of Sanger High School. Sanger High School has made tremendous strides in improving the education its students receive. Huge gains have been made in academic performance, along with an increased number of certifications earned. Sanger High School has something to offer everyone from new programs of study like Robotics, Graphics Design, and Audio and Video Technology to a variety of clubs and organizations, to join. Our goal is to provide our students with opportunities that will serve them well after they leave high school and our college graduation rates are proof we are doing just that!


This school year will be filled with wonderful opportunities for our students to enjoy engaging and rigorous learning under the guidance of Sanger High School’s phenomenal educators. It will be a privilege to experience our students’ excitement as they make new discoveries about themselves as learners.


In addition to the pursuit of excellence in academics, we highly encourage your son or daughter to become engaged in the “other education.”  Whether your student enjoys Academic UIL, Art, Athletics, Band, Cheerleading, Choir, FCCLA, FFA, NHS, Student Council, or Theater - there’s something for everyone! Participating in extracurricular activities supports character development, leadership skills, students’ self-esteem and resiliency, community involvement, and cultivates social development.  


If we’ve never met, let me introduce myself! I am forever a Sanger Indian...I am a proud product of this wonderful school district and have dedicated my entire career to giving back to a community that has provided me with extraordinary opportunities and experiences. I truly value education and feel it is something that continues throughout life. The 2021-2022 school year will be my 20th year in education with Sanger ISD. I graduated from The University of North Texas with a business degree in Marketing and from Texas Women’s University with a Master’s degree in Education Leadership.


I have lived in Sanger most of my life and love everything about our community. My husband, John, and I live in Sanger. Our son is a recent graduate of Texas A&M University and lives and works in College Station. When I am not working you will likely see me somewhere in the community cheering on the Sanger Indians!


Anyone who knows me will tell you that I believe in service and it is a trait we try to instill into every student who enters our doors. “Tribe Over Me” means to put others first. It means to lead selflessly and it is a phrase you will hear often in the hallways of our school. We welcome you to Sanger High School and we welcome you to walk alongside us in the education of your most prized possession, your children!
