Lights. Camera. Lead. HISD spotlights Star Educator Alyssa Stevenson

Real transformation is underway in HISD schools, thanks to the educators and school leaders who are putting in the work to ensure our students receive high-quality instruction every day.

To spotlight these game-changing education leaders, we’re launching the Star Educators: Lights. Camera. Lead. series. You will see first hand their dedication to giving ALL HISD students the educational experiences they need and deserve. Join Chief of Leadership and Strategic Initiatives, Sandi Massey, each Tuesday as she sits down with a new campus leader on HISD’s social media channels.

This week’s featured educator is Alyssa Stevenson, Principal at Fondren Elementary School. Before becoming a principal, Stevenson served as a classroom teacher, reading interventionist, teacher specialist, and assistant principal. Stevenson’s number one priority is to foster a positive and enriching learning environment, and her dedication to maintaining Fondren’s high standards is evident in the growth seen in her students and staff this past school year.
