Who is Mr. Magadance?

The 16-17 school year marks the beginning of my 1st year as the principal at ISA and my seventeenth year in education.  I previously served as a learner and leader at the Claudia Taylor "Lady Bird" Johnson High School (CTJ) and Robert E. Lee High School.  I have also served the ISA community as a teacher and assistant principal from 2005 to 2012.  I am extremely excited to return to the ISA community!

Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Trinity University 1998

Master of Arts in Teaching, Trinity University 2000

Master of Education: School Administration, Trinity University 2007

I will begin my seventeenth year in education this fall.  As a teacher at Lee High School and ISA, I have had the opportunity to work with students in ninth through twelfth grade.  I have had experience preparing classes studying world geography, economics, United States government, United States history, psychology, sociology, and philosophy.  I have also served ISA and CTJ High School as a campus administrator, and I am eager to continue my learning as a new principal at ISA!

I have been happily married for nearly fourteen years to Julie who is a former English teacher, high school counselor, and now an elementary school counselor.  Our son Noah will start 6th grade at the STEM Academy at Nimitz Middle School and our daughter Cora will begin 3rd grade at Steubing Ranch Elementary School.  Outside of school we enjoy swimming, riding bikes, our trampoline, and playing with our dog Chuck and twelve laying hens who keep us in eggs throughout the entire year.
