Mrs. Carissa Thomas

I am pleased to serve as an assistant principal of McClendon Elementary. I feel honored to be a part of the Brave family and to have the opportunity to work with the amazing teachers and staff in all aspects of education.

This will be my fourth year at Community ISD. The previous three years I've been the instructional coach for the campus.

Before coming to Community ISD, I worked as a 5th grade and 2nd grade teacher.  I am also married and have four beautiful babies.

I obtained my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership and my undergraduate work from Texas A&M University - Commerce.  And I promote life-long learnering as I continue my education in the doctoral program at Texas A&M University - Commerce.

I am looking forward to a great school year!
