I am so honored to be serving as the principal of the amazing Westcliff Elementary for my 14th year! Being part of the Westcliff family has been and continues to be one of the most amazing parts of my life.  Prior to my time here, I was the Assistant Principal at Ridglea Hills Elementary for three years and was the principal of a Christian PK-12th grade school for three years as well.  I loved teaching 5th grade and secondary English for six years, both private and public, and left it only because there was no one else willing to become the principal at SCA.    

I am a local girl having graduated with my Masters of Education and Bachelor of Science from the University of North Texas and I am a graduate of Calvary Christian Academy in Fort Worth.  I have completed my doctoral coursework at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma as well. 

My greatest treasure in life are my three children.  Audrey is 25 and works with children, as I do.  Alex is a student at ORU, and does missions and church work.  Asher is 21 and is currently a senior at Baylor University studying pre-law.  I love being with my children above all, but also enjoy working out, reading, and enjoying time at church.

Mr. Jose Diaz

I was born in the Dominican Republic. I studied Geography Science in the Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo, and moved to New York City where I graduated from Mercy College with a Bachelor of Science, and then in Hunter College with a Master of Science and Education. I attended the University of Texas of Arlington (UTA) to complete the requirements for the Principal Certification.

I have been an educator all my life. I started teaching since I was eighteen years old in a Middle and High School in the Dominican Republic. Here in the United States, I taught at PS 121 in Harlem, NYC, and in Texas at T. A. Sims Elementary. I became a School Administrator in 2000, and I have served as Assistant Principal at De Zavala Elementary, Meadowbrook Elementary, Richard J. Wilson, and at Westcliff. Also, I had the privilege of serving as Principal at M. H. Moore Elementary.

On a personal note, I am married to Ms. Yovanny Diaz for the last thirty-two years, and we had three children, Josenny (deceased), Heidy and Jose Agustin Jr. Last year my first grandson, Gianni, was born!

I love music, poetry and play drums. I value honesty, sincerity, and friendship.
