Coahoma - Coahoma ISD is proud to announce Charlotte Stovall, former principal of Coahoma High School and current Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction, has been named ESC Region 18’s Outstanding Principal of the Year by the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals (TASSP).
Stovall said she was surprised and honored to be nominated and chosen by a group of her peers within the region.
“I love what I do. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work with kids every day,” Stovall said. “We are molding our future and the time I spend with them is amazing. Some people have a job they go to every day. When I go to work, it’s not a job. I have an opportunity to make a change in some child’s life. I think that’s pretty cool, and I love it.”
Stovall earned both her bachelor’s and master’s degree in education at Angelo State University in San Angelo. She has 22 years of experience in the education field.
“My first year of teaching was at Coahoma Elementary as a kindergarten teacher,” Stovall said. “I then began teaching for Colorado ISD and stayed there for 16 years as a teacher, counselor, and principal.”
Stovall returned to Coahoma ISD in 2013 to serve as the elementary school principal. In June of 2015, she was named the principal of the high school and for a short time in 2016, she served as the junior high and high school principal. She transitioned to her current position as Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction in June of 2017.
“We are blessed to have Charlotte as a leader in our district,” said Dr. Amy Jacobs, Superintendent of Coahoma ISD. “Her passion for providing students with the best possible learning environment, along with her ability to lead students and staff to achieving excellence make her a perfect choice to represent our district and our region with this honor.”
As part of her duties, Stovall also helps to oversee The Academy, an optional program for Coahoma ISD students using innovative methods of teaching, hands-on learning, movement and music to emphasize academic lessons in a structured environment.
“I love being a Coahoma Bulldog,” Stovall said. “Coahoma is special because we have a great team of people who challenge themselves to continue to grow and always put kids first. Innovation is happening here.”
