Dear Families and Students,

We are looking forward to a wonderful new school year with all of you! It is our desire to see every single student learn and make miraculous GROWTH each year. It is so important that every child BELIEVES they can grow to their full potential and that mistakes are just a part of that growth. We believe in the power of "YET" and helping all students set goals for their growth and the great things they want to achieve.

"Together we Learn, Achieve, & GROW!"

-Principal Staros Guajardo

                                  Getting to Know Me: I have 4 children (1st Grade, 4th Grade, and 2 in college!). I love running, roller coasters, donuts, and traveling with my family.

                                  Professional Experience: I started teaching in FWISD in 1999. I have served as a 3rd-5th Grade Teacher, Instructional Specialist, Data Analyst, Dean of Instruction, Learning Network Coordinator, Assistant Principal, and Principal. I am honored to have the privilege of serving here at Greenbriar since 2013. Greenbriar is home.

                                  Personal Expectation: Work Hard, Be Nice. If everyone does those two things, most everything else falls into place.

                                  Assistant Principal

                                  Angela Jenkins

                                  Professional Experience: This is my fourth year as an assistant principal. I have seventeen years of teaching experience; fifteen of which, were at Greenbriar Elementary where I taught 2nd, 3rd and 5th Grade. Before teaching, I began my professional career as an American Sign Language interpreter with FWISD.

                                  Personal Expectation: To let His light shine through me.

                                  One of my greatest accomplishments: Touching the lives of so many young people and preparing them for a promising future.
