Mr. Alberto Herrera

Principal

   I am very excited about joining the Sam Rosen Family! I look forward to working with the community and getting to know our families and staff! As a Fort Worth resident, I am eager to serve the community where I reside and begin the work to continue building on our school’s success. If you are a returning family, hello! If you are new to the SRES family, welcome!

   A little bit about me… I have been married for 15 years to my wonderful wife Maria. She is an Oak Cliff girl from Dallas. We have three children: Arón who is in 9th grade, Ileana who is in 7th grade, and Mariela who is in 4th grade. In my spare time, I am an avid reader, a car detailing enthusiast, and I love to cook and grill.

   I am originally from Eagle Pass, Texas, but have lived in the DFW area since 2000. Eagle Pass is a small border town in South Texas. I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Arts in History and Spanish and I also earned a Master of Education in Educational Leadership & Policy Studies from The University of Texas at Arlington. I have taught 6th grade Social Studies in Northside ISD in San Antonio, Cedar Hill ISD, and in the Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD. I also served as an Assistant Principal in Grand Prairie ISD.

   This will be my twenty first year in education and my ninth year as a principal. Before coming to Sam Rosen ES, I served as Principal at Anson Jones ES in Dallas ISD. It is my mission to serve the community and ensure that our kids get a solid educational foundation while instilling a love of learning in all our students. I consider communication and collaboration very important. Please let me know if you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns and I will be happy to talk to you. I look forward to working with you this school year!

Assistant Principal 

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm to serve as a member of the Sam Rosen Elementary community! I am looking forward to assisting Mr. Herrera and working with the dedicated staff in fostering a positive learning environment for our students. As the parent of two children, ages 4 and 6, I recognize the importance of a strong home-school connection. Parents are every child’s first teacher, and I believe that by working collaboratively, we can ensure your child’s social, emotional, and academic needs are met.

I have lived in Fort Worth all of my life and am a Fort Worth ISD product. My educational experiences in this school district have inspired me to be a part of the teaching profession. I graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington, then from Texas Christian University with a degree in Educational Administration. I have served as an Instructional Aide, 2nd-5th Grade Teacher and as an Administrative Intern at A.M. Pate Elementary prior to be transferred to Sam Rosen Elementary.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I am here to support you in any possible way.

¡Es un gran placer ser parte de la comunidad de la escuela primaria de Sam Rosen! Espero poder asistir al Señor Herrera y trabajar con los maestros creando un ambiente de aprendizaje positivo para nuestros estudiantes. Como padre de dos hijos, de 4 y 6 años, reconozco la importancia de una fuerte conexión entre la casa y la escuela. Los padres son los primeros maestros de todos los niños y creo que trabajando en colaboración, podemos asegurarnos que las necesidades sociales, emocionales y académicas de su hijo sean satisfechas.

Yo he vivido toda mi vida en Fort Worth y soy un producto de Fort Worth ISD. Mis experiencias educativas en este distrito escolar me han inspirado a ser parte de la profesión docente. Me gradué de la Universidad de Texas en Arlington, a continuación, de la Universidad TCU donde recibe mi maestría en administración. He servido como ayudante de instrucción, maestra de segundo grado hasta quinto grado y como Interno Administrativo en A.M. Pate Primaria antes de cambiarme a Sam Rosen.

Por favor no dude en ponerse en contacto conmigo, si tiene alguna pregunta o inquietud. Estoy aquí para ayudarles en todo lo posible.
