Principal: Krista McClure

Greetings! I am proud to serve as the principal at Shorehaven Elementary. My Experience as an Assistant Principal, Instructional Support Teacher, Literacy Specialist in Garland ISD, 5th, 6th, and 4th grade teacher in Dallas ISD, 9th grade teacher in Longview ISD has led me to Shorehaven Elementary. I have a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies from Stephen F. Austin State University, Masters in Educational Leadership and Masters in Counseling from Prairie View A&M University. I am passionate about education. I believe in meeting the needs of all students where they are and driving them forward towards success. As educators, we must foster independence and instill confidence in students to create life-long learners. When we build a solid foundation with a love for students in a safe environment all students will excel.

I am excited to be part of the Shorehaven community. I look forward to a great year.

Education is the most powerful weapon, which you can use to change the world. ~Nelson Mandela
