    As an assistant principal, she contributes to creating an environment conducive to learning. She listens attentively and engages fellow students with respect and empathy. Ms. Read coordinates many of the campus leadership boards including the Campus Improvement Team, Response to Intervention Committee (RTI), and Texas Accountability Intervention System committee (TAIS). Mrs. Read's drive is more than professional, because academics and teaching are her passion. I firmly believe the success in our school can be directly attributed to Ms. Read's leadership capabilities.
