Dear Comet Families,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at Couch Collegiate Prep!

At Couch, we believe that education is a collaborative effort that involves the school, parents, and students working together. As the principal, I am committed to fostering a positive and nurturing environment where every child can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

Our dedicated team of experienced teachers and staff are excited to embark on this new academic journey with our learners. We strive to create engaging and inclusive classrooms that inspire curiosity, critical thinking, and a love for learning. 

Throughout the school year, we will be implementing a variety of programs and initiatives to support your child's educational growth. We value the input of our parents and encourage you to be active participants in your child's education by attending parent-teacher conferences, volunteering, and joining our school's parent-teacher association.

I am truly honored to be part of this amazing school community, and I am excited to work together to make this school year a memorable and successful one for your child. Together, we will create a nurturing, safe, and engaging learning environment that sets the foundation for a lifetime of success.

As always, thanks for being GREAT!

Hello everyone!

I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to make the move to Garland ISD & join the Comet community. I’ve crafted a 15 year career in Dallas ISD, serving most recently as a middle school AP. My background includes coming into the district as an elementary TA, onto a 7th grade ELAR classroom teacher, a Literacy Instructional Coach, and then as an AP at both the elementary & secondary levels. I decided to make a move to Garland ISD because my son is a student in GISD, and with the demands of our careers, I wanted to be somewhere where I could maximize my involvement with his life. I am also a GISD alum, having attended WGA, Austin Academy & graduating from GHS. I truly believe in the GISD effect, and am proud of the education I received during my academic career. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone and contributing to the amazing efforts you all have already cultivated at your campus. Cheers to the 2023-2024 school year!
