The new principal at Davis, Ms. Betz

Dear Davis Community,

I am honored to serve the amazing students, parents, staff and community members of Davis Elementary! As your principal, I look forward to ensuring continuous growth and success for all students at Davis Elementary.

Serving as an educator since 2012 has afforded me several opportunities to work with astounding students and teachers. I have served as a classroom teacher, interventionist, instructional coach, and assistant principal. My educational journey includes a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (Langston University) and a Masters in Executive Business Administration (Texas Woman’s University).

My focus is on building relationships and engaging students in order to grow strong individuals with an intrinsic motivation toward learning and success. I also understand the need for continued support for teachers who need access to high-quality resources to contribute to comprehensive and ever-improving instructional practices that will guide our students to meet and exceed their individual potential.

I look forward to working side-by-side with our Davis families and staff to continue the great success that Davis has displayed throughout the years! If I can assist you in any way, please come see me.

Our Assistant Principal

Carolyn Lee

I could not be more thrilled to serve the staff, students, and parents at Davis as the Assistant Principal! I'm looking forward to reconnecting with familiar faces and getting to know the students, staff, and parents that I've not yet had the opportunity to work with. 

I am a product of GISD schools, and have spent my entire career in Garland ISD. I started my career as the 2nd grade long term substitute at Carver Elementary. I then taught 5th grade at Toler Elementary and Davis Elementary. After 7 years as a classroom teacher, I went to serve as the AVID Elementary Specialist, where I supported 39 elementary schools in GISD. This will be my 4th year serving Davis Elementary as the Assistant Principal. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Texas A&M and my Masters in Educational Leadership from Southern Methodist University (SMU). 

I look forward to making this the best school year yet!
