Meet Mrs. Parnham

I am so excited to be your HS Principal! I am an educational leader that graduated in 2017 with a PhD in education from Capella University. I received both my Masters and Bachelors from Texas Woman's University, in Denton, Texas. I have spent the last 13 years in leadership roles in my previous position as a Lead Assistant Principal, within the Leander Independent School District. Prior to my administrative role, I taught middle school science for 9 1/2 years in Coppell and Lake Dallas ISD, located in the North Dallas area.

When I am not serving as an administrator, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I have an amazing husband, three adult sons, two beautiful grandchildren and one Labrador.

I am proud to be a Thorndale Bulldog and look forward to serving you!

Please feel free to contact me at: or 512-898-2321
