Assistant Principal

Dear Parents, Students, and Stakeholders,

My name is Jasmine Bell, and it is my pleasure to serve my 2nd year as Assistant Principal/Dean of Instruction of Garrett Elementary School. I am currently entering my 20th year in education. I graduated from Alabama State University in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.  In 2008, I received my masters degree in Educational Leadership and Supervision. As a native of Mobile, Alabama, I moved to Houston, Texas in 2019.  Since relocating here, I have had the privilege to serve in the Sheldon ISD school district.  Throughout my educational career, I have been a 4th grade teacher, 5th grade teacher, title one facilitator, instructional partner, interventionist, campus instructional specialist, and now the assistant principal. 

Beginning out as a young educator, I quickly realized educators have an awesome job of shaping the lives of our future.  My goal as your child’s assistant principal is to encourage students by teaching them that mistakes are acceptable as long as learning continues to take place during the process.  

Education should always influence the hearts and minds of students through technology, engagement, as well as experiential learning.  My ultimate goal is to help create lifelong learners that can become productive citizens in the ever-changing world. 

As a liaison for children, it is my responsibility to speak up for equity and equality for all children.  I realize that I am the link between home and school.  All stakeholders play a vital role in helping children reach their highest potential. 

I intend to always make learning experiences exciting and inspiring.  Education should allow students to advance in their achievement through goal setting.  The educational environment should enable students to accomplish personal goals as well as meeting requirements in their curriculum.  

I believe effective learning can take place inside and outside the classroom when TRUST, RESPECT, CONSISTENCY, COMMUNICATION, AND SUPPORT are all present.
