Deretchin Summer Update

Hello Deretchin Families! I hope you are enjoying the remaining weeks of summer! My name is Tina Oliver, and I am VERY EXCITED and honored to serve as the new principal of Deretchin! I know we are going to have an AMAZING school year-TOGETHER!

I want to share a little about myself with you. I am beginning my 23rd year in education. I was a 4th grade teacher for eleven years in both Montgomery and Conroe ISD, assistant principal at Deretchin for four years, and I was the principal of Kaufman Elementary in CISD for the last seven years. I have a wonderful husband named Chris and two beautiful daughters, Meg (28) and Bailey (25).

I believe in ALWAYS putting students first in every decision made for our school and working hard each and every day to make school the "place to be" for our students, staff, and families.

It is great to be back at Deretchin, and I look forward to meeting you soon!
