SMCISD hires assistant principal for Hernandez Elementary


The San Marcos CISD hired Lizette Salinas-Rodriguez as a part-time assistant principal and part-time Title I teacher for Hernandez Elementary School, starting in fall 2009.

Title I programs, authorized by the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act, provide financial assistance to local education agencies serving areas with high concentrations of low-income children.

Hernandez will house San Marcos CISD’s Pre-K program for the next school year. Salinas-Rodriguez has worked for the last two years as a mentor to the twelve classrooms of the Bonham Pre-K school. She also was responsible for implementation of the Texas Early Education Model.

“I’ve had the honor to work alongside the staff, principal and children,” said Salinas-Rodriguez. “While working with them, I have experienced many wonderful, exciting, and educational opportunities at this campus. It would be an honor to be part of a district who strives to provide the best educational opportunities for all children, teachers, as well as families.”

Salinas-Rodriguez earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Texas State. In her eleven years of teaching, she has worked for Judson ISD, San Antonio ISD and Hays CISD. Most recently, she served as a Project Outreach Coordinator with the University of Texas Science Center, providing professional staff development and in-classroom mentoring for teachers.
