My name is Mr. Peña. I am A+ Secondary's Assistant Principal. I am beginning my second year with the district. After my parents, the students and staff of this district, Dallas I.S.D. and Garland I.S.D. have had a significant impact on shaping me as an educator. The experiences at all of these districts remind me daily of my responsibility t our learning community and its learners. Ensuring that students and staff have access to high interest educational materials and information for academic and personal growth is a fundamental part of my practice, as it was what I had access to as a student.
I am originally from South Texas. I moved to the DFW Metroplex many years ago and began working as a classroom teacher and coach. While in the classroom, I heavily parental involvement to further enrich the learning experiences I provided for my students.
At A+ Secondary, you'll find me greeting you as you walk into the school, walking the halls, visiting classrooms or maybe saying goodbye at the end of the day. If you find me with some downtime, you'll see I have a book in hand and several more within reach!
I promise to work hard to provide our learning community and beyond with a safe, comfortable place to learn and grow. If you're on campus, please stop in and say 'hi".
