Meet our Hamblen Administrators!Our Principal--- Mr. Jose Lopez
My name is Jose Lopez and I am honored and humbled to serve as the new principal of Hamblen Elementary. I am very passionate about education and look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging and high quality education. Most of all, I look forward to working with our students and continuing the strong history of academic excellence here at Hamblen Elementary.
Throughout my educational career, I have been privileged to have spent 13 wonderful years as an educator working with students from the elementary level. I have served as a teacher, math specialist, assistant principal and now principal. My academic background includes a B.A. in Business Administration from the University of Texas Pan American and a Masters of Science in Educational Administration from Lamar University.
It is my core belief that great schools are the results of great teachers, so my primary objective will be to ensure that every student is receiving high-quality instruction from every teacher at Hamblen Elementary. I envision a Hamblen Elementary that will prepare ALL of our students academically, socially, and emotionally for the bright future that awaits them. We will strive to provide all students with a safe and supportive learning environment. My belief is that every child can and will learn if given the right opportunities. Working together as a team with our staff and parents, I am committed to helping each student achieve their very best. Together we will continue to provide outstanding educational opportunities and a culture of academic excellence for our students.
Once again, I am thankful to have the opportunity to serve the Hamblen Elementary community. I look forward to getting to know you and your children as we start this new and exciting school year together. Please feel free to contact me at 281-457-8720 with any questions, ideas, or concerns that you would like to discuss.
