Letter from Miranda Martin, 2020-2021 Shady Brook Principal

Greetings Shady Brook Elementary Community,

My name is Miranda Martin, and I am overjoyed that I have been selected to serve as the incoming Shady Brook Elementary School Principal. It is a dream come true to be an elementary principal in HEB ISD, in particular at Shady Brook. I cannot wait to begin the journey we will embark upon together next year!

To tell you a bit about myself, I am a product of HEB ISD, having attended Donna Park Elementary, Hurst Junior High, and L.D. Bell High School. I earned my undergraduate degree at the University of Texas at Austin (Hook ‘Em!) and my master’s degree at UNT. I began my teaching career in Irving, teaching 6th-8th Grade English, Reading, and Humanities. I then taught 6th and 3rd Grade at North Euless Elementary. For the past six school years, I have had the pleasure of serving as the Assistant Principal at River Trails Elementary.

Personally, I am married to Brian, a captain for the North Richland Hills Fire Department, and I am mom to Matthew, 8, and Chloe, 6, both HEB ISD students. I spend my time outside of school running my children to their many activities and spending time with friends and family. When I have time for hobbies, I enjoy gardening, yoga, painting, and reading.

I am devoted to the growth of every student as a whole child, the success of every teacher, and a partnership with every member of our community. I feel honored and humbled to be in this position, and I look forward to getting to know all of your families in the coming months. Please do not hesitate to contact me at prior to the start of next year with anything you would like to share.

Warm Regards,
Miranda Martin
