• I am very honored to begin my fourth year as principal at Highland Lakes Elementary this year!  This year begins my fifth year in Marble Falls ISD, and my 17th year in education.  Prior to Marble Falls ISD, I served 7 years in Frisco ISD and 5 years at First Baptist Academy in Houston.  I received my Bachelor's Degree from Howard Payne University, a Master's Degree from the University of Houston Clear Lake, and a Master's Degree from Lamar University.  I am originally from Houston, but truly love living in the Hill Country!

    I have been married to my wonderful husband, Michael Birdwell, for 19 years.  We have two daughters, McKinley and Kellan.  McKinley is a junior at Marble Falls High School this year, and Kellan is a 7th grader at Marble Falls Middle School.  

    I am blessed to serve Highland Lakes Elementary alongside an amazing staff and community, and I am looking forward to all we will accomplish together this school year!

    my family
