Principal Announcement 10/3/22

Doss parents and families,

I am writing to inform you that my last day to serve as principal of Doss Elementary will be on Friday, October 14th.  I have accepted the principal position at Kealing Middle School here in Austin ISD and will begin effective Monday, October 17th.  

I am extremely grateful for my time serving the Doss community over the past three and a half years.  We have been through many changes including moving campus locations, planning and building a new, modernized building, kept students/staff/families safe through COVID-19, and have continued to support each other throughout my time.  I am thankful for all of the love and support shown and know that I am a better principal and servant leader because of my time at Doss.  Know that you will continue to see me from time to time as my child will continue to attend school here.

I am currently working with district leadership on a transition plan that will include naming a long-term substitute principal in my absence and a timeline for interviewing/hiring the next leader of Doss Elementary.  Should you have any questions regarding the transition plan, do not hesitate to contact Miguel Castillo (Executive Director of School Leadership/Campus Support) at

Again, thank you for all of your love and support.
