Dear LaPoynor Parents, Students and Community Members:
My name is Crystal Woodard and I am so privileged and excited to introduce myself as LaPoynor’s Secondary Principal. Over the past eighteen years I have worked as a HS Math Teacher and secondary coach for numerous sports. However, it may be more important for you to know that I am the parent of three grown children as well. I fully understand the challenges and rewards you face every day as you work to ensure your child has the best educational experience. I have a passion for student success in all aspects of their education and will be spending a lot of time getting to know your children. I will celebrate their successes and encourage their growth every day.
I am so thankful to have the opportunity to bring all I have experienced and learned with me to your wonderful community. I am also very excited about the opportunity to be involved with school’s extracurricular activities. I hope my enthusiasm towards all aspects of your child’s education will inspire our current students to view our campuses as their second home. In this regard, my intention is to spread the word about LISD to the outlying communities in order to welcome as many new members as possible.
One of the most important aspects of my work here will be building strong relationships with students, teachers and families. You’ll find me in the hallways, classrooms and at special activities. My passion has been and always will be educating students. With that in mind, you can expect that I will work diligently with teachers to make sure our students are exposed to curriculum and instruction that is both engaging and challenging.
I welcome the opportunity to serve our learning and teaching community. I look forward to working and growing with such a dynamic staff, proud community members and dedicated parents. I am confident that together with this amazing staff, we can make LPJHS and LPHS an even better place for our students to learn and grow.
In just the relatively short time that I’ve had interactions I’ve had with staff, students and families so far, it’s become abundantly clear that this school is a unique and special place. I’m looking forward to meeting each of you as we start this new and exciting year together!
