Principal: Kerstin Allen
It is with great pride and excitement that I start year six as principal of Club Hill Elementary School. During my time at Garland ISD, I have served as a general education teacher, interventionist, Instructional Support Teacher, and administrator at the elementary school level. I am extremely humbled and honored to serve the students, parents, and faculty. I am a believer in servant leadership and that it takes a strong community to build life-long learners. I can't wait to see the amazing things your students will accomplish this year! During the course of the year, I will work together with you and our staff to provide the students of Club Hill the best possible opportunities in order to prepare them to become world class citizens and lifelong learners, who can master the challenges of the 21st Century. As the Principal, my door is always open, and I welcome your input. I look forward to working with you and your child.
Assistant Principal: Leila Toribio Lopez
Hi! My name is Leila Toribio, and I am the assistant principal for Pre-K through 5th. I am so excited to be a part of the Club Hill Elementary STEM family as we provide a safe and fun learning environment for each student. I am beginning my 17th year in education and my tenth year here in Garland ISD. I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade. I have taught both general education, talented and gifted, and bilingual classes. I worked one year with the bilingual curriculum department in GISD before transitioning over to my role as an assistant principal. I am currently serving my 6th year as an assistant principal. As I eagerly jump into this current year, it is my hope to help facilitate a welcoming learning environment for all students, teachers, and staff here in the Club Hill family and in Garland ISD. My educational background consists of a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and Education from UMass Amherst, and a master’s degree in Elementary Education with a Principal Certification K-12. I am happily married to my husband, we have two amazing girls, and one cat that keeps us occupied. We enjoy Friday movie nights, gardening, spending time exploring, and enjoying a good meal with family and friends. I look forward to this new school year! I see a great future and amazing potential in each and every one of your children. Go Cougars!
