Flour Bluff Primary Principal, Shea Hernandez, is assuming a new role at Flour Bluff High School. Beginning with the 2021-2022 school year, Ms. Hernandez will be an Assistant Principal at FBHS as well as assisting the campus with drop-out recovery efforts through the district’s newly created Hornet Learning Academy. This new initiative will focus on reaching students who have dropped-out or are at-risk of dropping out of school and will provide opportunities for students to successfully complete high school.
“Ms. Hernandez will transition to a new role that will lend her expertise to ensuring that students who found themselves struggling, especially during this past year, will return and successfully complete their high school careers,” said Velma Soliz-Garcia, Flour Bluff ISD Superintendent of Schools. “I’m confident she will be an asset to Flour Bluff High School and will be instrumental in helping the district re-connect with Hornets that are at-risk of dropping out.”
Ms. Hernandez has 22 years of educational experience. She began her teaching career in San Antonio ISD where she also was a Campus Instructional Coordinator and Assistant Principal. In 2010, she led the PreK through 2nd grades and Headstart programs in West Oso ISD. She has been leading Flour Bluff Primary since 2015.
“No Matter what age or grade level I’ve worked with, I have always fallen in love with the students,” said Shea Hernandez. “Kids have a curiosity for learning, it’s hard for their energy not to be contagious. I know this will be true of high school as well. I am curious and look forward to learning a new role right alongside them.”
Ms. Hernandez will begin her new role at Flour Bluff High School in July. The District expects to have a new principal named at Flour Bluff Primary later this summer.
