Through the course of the end of the year and the summer we have had several staff changes. Please join me in welcoming our newest Cypress Cheetahs!

Laura Ashley Butler is our new Performing Arts teacher. She is coming to us from out of state with experiences ranging from teaching art, theater, and directing children’s musicals. We are excited to see all that she will bring to our program!

Chris Dash will be our new PE teacher and we will be hiring our new PE Instructional Assistant over the next several weeks. Chris is a dynamic teacher coming to us from River Ridge Elementary. He has experience in PE, coaching basketball at summer camps, and has a passion for the whole child.

Jennifer Miller will be coming to our 1st grade team. She has served as a 1st grade teacher at Steiner Ranch and Reagan Elementary. Most recently she has taught kindergarten at Peace Lutheran.

Cara Stubbs will be joining our kinder team. She has taught kinder in AISD. She brings with her many experiences of using data to inform instruction and systems to ensure social emotional and academic growth of every child.

We hope to be interviewing for a .5 Library Assistant over the next several weeks as well.

Angela Beach has also joined our administrative team as our new Assistant Principal.

"Hello, all! My name is Angela Beach and I am beyond thrilled to be joining the Cypress Elementary family as the new Assistant Principal. I have spent the last five years as the AP at Giddens Elementary and previously taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades here in LISD. When I am not at work, I love spending time with my husband and our two young sons, as we play at the park, visit the library, and barbecue in the backyard. I very much look forward to getting to know each of you as we continue the greatness that is Cypress Elementary. Go Cheetahs!"
