Meet our lead administrators

Jenny Thomason, Principal

It is the greatest honor to be able to lead Weaver Elementary!  I have worked at Weaver as the assistant principal for three years and I am so excited to now be the principal.  During my 20 years in education I have worked with students at every grade level.  I began my career in another district teaching middle school social studies.  I came to Garland ISD and taught at Sam Houston Middle School and South Garland High School.  Following teaching social studies, I was an instructional coach for elementary, middle, and high school teachers.  

I know how important building relationships and academic goals are to establishing a strong foundation are and I look forward to helping students reach their full potential at Weaver Elementary.  I am eager to serve our students and staff and continue the growth that we are already seeing. 

 

Assistant Principle, Jake Shirley

Jake Shirley, Assistant Principal

 My name is Jake Shirley, and I am honored and anxious to serve alongside Mrs. Thomason as the assistant principal at Weaver Elementary.

During my time in education, I have worked everywhere from residential treatment, to large high schools, down to small rural elementary schools.  One thing I have found rings true at each school in which I have served: students have the best opportunity for success when home and school are unified as a team. Your influence cannot be understated. I look forward to joining with you as a teammate in your children’s education. 

Thank you for trusting your precious children with our Weaver Elementary team.  I (we) will love them, protect them, and make sure all of their needs are met- academically, emotionally, and physically.
