Hello My Name Is...
Assistant Principal, Attendance
My name is Katrina Simmons, and I am the Assistant Principal
for Attendance here at McCollum High School. I’m a product of Harlandale, as I
attended both Bellaire Elementary and Kingsborough Middle, before moving across
town and graduating from Holmes High School. I attended one of the best
colleges in the world, Texas A&M University-College Station, and I am proud
to say I bleed Aggie maroon. During football season, you can hear me yelling
for my team from miles away.
Upon graduating from Texas A&M, I returned to Harlandale
and began my teaching career at Schulze Elementary, where I taught amazing students
for 12 years. I began my administrative career in 2013, and since then, have
served as an Assistant Principal at Bellaire and Gillette Elementary and an
Academic Coordinator at Carroll Bell and Adams Elementary. I am excited to join
the Cowboy Community and be a part of the amazing staff at McCollum High
My passion is for the students of Harlandale ISD. It is my
hope to provide excellent leadership through my service in education, and to be
a model to all students of integrity, hard work and determination. I believe
every student who strives for integrity, works hard, and takes advantage of the
opportunities provided to them can graduate to become productive members of
society and go on to achieve great things!
