I am excited to begin my 5th year as the principal of Johnson Ranch and it is truly an honor to work along side the best teachers, staff, students and parents in Texas. Together we make a strong family that has student success at the forefront of every decision. We know it is an adventure worth planning that will be fun as well as fulfilling This has led us to our theme of "JRES is Where Your Adventure Begins" for the 2018-2019 school year. Throughout the year, I look forward to meeting the new members of our community and creating deeper connections with those that continue to be a part of the Roper family. I encourage families to get to know each other and work along side us at Johnson Ranch. We appreciate your support as your student(s) learns and grows with us. Lets all connect and have a wonderful year, so that we can establish a united front to show our little Ropers how much we care. At Johnson Ranch, the staff, teachers and administration are honored that you entrust us with your precious ones and we will work hard to provide quality experiences and opportunities for them to progress, master and enrich towards their leadership goals.
