Schindewolf sixth-grade assistant principal Jessica Berger is more of a behind-the-scenes administrator but that all changed when she was announced as the 2017 Klein ISD Assistant Principal of the Year. 

 

Despite her behind the curtain style, she spends as much time as she can in the hallways at Schindewolf and in the classrooms working to build better relationships with the students. She is described as a positive influence and an encouraging leader that is supportive and highly collaborative. Her principal refers to her as “The Golden Ticket of the Assistant Principals” saying that the students and teachers love and respect her.

 

“I believe that building those relationships is what is most important,” said Berger. I’ve got 460 sixth-graders to make a difference for and that’s what they deserve.”

 

Administrators say that when you can’t seem to find Berger during lunch duty, you can usually find her sitting with students at their tables talking about the latest book they have read.

 

Berger prefers to not be at the forefront of things but wants to make sure other people get the recognition they deserve.

 

“This is so well deserved,” said Schindewolf eighth-grade assistant principal Stephanie Gray. “She is a true gem in all aspects of everything she does.”

 

She says she is truly humbled to have received this award.

 

“Beginning my career as a teacher, and now being an administrator, you continue your path in education always wanting to reach as many students as possible and do what you can do make a difference,” said Berger.
