Principal's Corner


Thank you for visiting my webpage. I am honored to be the Principal of the students, faculty, and staff of Faulk-Kieberger Elementary. My number one priority as Principal is to the safety and academic success of our students.
My previous assignments in APISD have been as Principal of Charlie Marshall Elementary and Assistant Principal of A.C. Blunt Middle School.

I possess multiple levels of leadership experience, having previously served as the in the U.S. Military and the business sector. I am a transplanted Texan from Hawaii, the “Aloha State.” I am continually integrating the “Aloha Spirit,” with the “South-Texas Spirit” demonstrated so well by the people of Aransas Pass. I truly appreciate the relationships we have already built together.

Although we are two physically separate campuses, we are united as One Team with One Purpose, and One Vision. As We prepare for the ground-breaking ceremony and completion of our new school on the Faulk Campus grounds, we thank you for the vision you share with us for the future of our students. We are excited for the work to be completed, and the opening ceremonies.

I believe that our school should be a place for all stakeholders to build community. I welcome you as parents and relatives to join with us in partnership, doing our part to empower our students to new heights of excellence. We have already begun this process by having conversations together. I invite you to visit with your student(s) during lunch and class time.

When possible, I enjoy attending community activities with the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club, and of course Shrimporee. I look forward to all the activities and possibilities this school year brings. GO PANTHERS!
