Amanda Bomar Named Principal of Pecan Creek Elementary
Amanda Bomar, assistant principal at Wilson Elementary, has been named the principal of Pecan Creek Elementary. Mrs. Bomar will replace Dr. Lacey Rainey, who was recently promoted to area superintendent of academic programs. Both educators will begin their new duties on July 1.
“During her time in leadership at Wilson Elementary, Ms. Bomar has been instrumental in the campus’ success and the focus on literacy,” said Dr. Gwen Perkins, area superintendent of academic programs. “Her service on the district’s team that initiated the design of the multi—tiered system of support (MTSS) helped her cultivate a profound understanding of the social and emotional needs of our students.”
In 2003, Ms. Bomar began her teaching career as a sixth-grade teacher at Crockett Intermediate School in Crockett ISD and then moved to serve as a reading/social studies teacher in Lufkin ISD. In 2007, she joined Mesquite ISD as the science department chair at Cannaday Elementary, where she also coordinated science fairs and the Drama Club.
Ms. Bomar joined Denton ISD in 2010 as a fifth-grade teacher at Rivera Elementary but was quickly elevated to serve as the campus’ Curriculum Administrator. H-E-B honored her with an outstanding teacher award for her students performance and improvement on TAKS science scores for three consecutive years, earning three Gold Performance Awards.
In 2014, she was named the assistant principal at Wilson Elementary where she has built a reputation for being an approachable leader with a true heart for service to others.
“Pecan Creek Elementary has an amazing reputation and a well-established legacy for exceptional student learning. I am so excited to follow in the footsteps of leaders that I admire and have worked side by side as well as the Pecan Creek staff,” said Ms. Bomar. “I am truly humbled and honored by this immense opportunity.”
Ms. Bomar earned her bachelor’s degree in education from the East Texas Baptist University and a master’s degree in educational leadership from Stephen F. Austin State University.
