This will be my 14th year in education, and fourth year at Williams Elementary.  Before joining Garland ISD I was a bilingual teacher for 8 years and then a bilingual instructional coach for 2 years.  I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, and then earned my Master’s Degree from the University of Texas at Arlington.

Hello Williams Wranglers,

My name is Irv Glenn II, the Assistant Principal of Williams Elementary.  I am excited to be a part of the Wrangler Family. My main goal as a campus administrator and educator is to ensure equitable outcomes for all our students.

My career began 11 years ago in Wake County, North Carolina as a 4th-grade teacher.  Since then, I’ve taught middle and high school social studies.  After teaching for six years, I became a school administrator. I’ve been a secondary and elementary assistant principal for the past five years. This year (2022-2023) marks my 12th year in this noble education profession.

I completed an associate’s degree in Teacher Education and a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education at Mount Olive College and Fort Hays State University, respectively.  For graduate school, I graduated from North Carolina State University with a master’s degree in Elementary Education and an Education Specialist degree in Instructional Leadership from Morehead State University.  I earned my Doctorate of Education degree in Educational Leadership from East Tennessee State University in 2021.  

I am here to support you, so please reach out with any questions or concerns that you may have. In the meantime, let’s “level up!”

Thank you!
